Skoda Kushaq Rear Seat Space Review-More Comfort Than Creta?
Hyundai Creta vs Skoda Kushaq SUV Comparison
The Skoda Kushaq was shown yesterday and we got a chance to check it out in person. This is the production version of the Kushaq and this is what you will get in the showrooms from a month from now. The Kushaq is based on the MQB AO IN platform which has been developed for India. Hence one of the major points was regarding the space factor. European needs are different from ours and rear seat space is more important since many are chauffeur driven. So Skoda has worked hard and given the Kushaq a comfortable rear seat, but how good is it in real world?
First of all the Kushaq has the longest wheelbase in its class at 2651mm and that is interesting since its length of 4,221mm is less than other compact SUVs. The Kushaq then has the longest wheelbase and that should translate to a lot of room.
The doors are nice and solid plus getting in and out is no issue at all with good practicality. The car is quite tall but not very tall hence accessing the rear seat is not a problem. Once in the rear seat is comfortable plus the upholstery used makes the cabin nice and airy. There is a nice mix of grey and silver being used with the rear ac vents finished in white. Quality has a typical European feel which would be liked by owners.
In terms of space the Kushaq is very comfortable for two persons and headroom plus legroom is quite good. You can stretch out and be comfortable easily while thigh support is nice-even for tall passengers. Hence for chauffeur driven owners, the Kushaq seems like a nice bet. There is a small hump at the rear which means for the middle passenger it is not the most comfortable plus width is a bit lacking. We feel the Kushaq works best as a four seater while the centre rear arm rest has a cup-holder too.
The presence of a sunroof is also rather nice and makes the cabin airy but it is not a full panoramic one like in the Hyundai Creta. Overall the Kushaq seems par for the course and seems to have a decent amount of room for the expected price. While it may not have class best space, it is enough if you are chauffeur driven or take you family for road trips.
