The SUV, based on the MQB AO IN platform, was revealed in March and will take on the likes of Hyundai Creta and Kia Seltos.
Zac Hollis, Skoda Auto India brand head, taking to Twitter, said, “Kushaq prices and specifications will be announced in June.”
Skoda Auto recently debuted the fourth-gen Fabia globally. Hollis ruled out immediate India launch instead reiterated a new sedan by the end of 2021.
