Skoda Kushaq Style 1.0 TSI MT gets brand new variant, skips on sunroof

New Kushaq Style NSR is priced Rs 20,000 lese,TPMS now standard across Kushaq variants.

Skoda has given the Kushaq another equipment update for 2022. The carmaker this time has introduced a new variant – Style NSR – which sits just below the top-spec Style variant. It misses out on some features, but as a whole, gets some additional equipment.

The ‘NSR’ in the name stands for ‘Non Sunroof’ as it misses out on a sunroof. Besides this, Skoda has also deleted rain-sensing wipers and auto-dimming interior rear-view mirror in this new variant. It also gets a smaller 15-inch spare wheel, instead of the larger 16-inch unit. The lack of a sunroof however means that the Style NSR gets a place for a sunglass holder, which the top-end model misses. The new trim is available only with the 1.0 TSI motor mated to the 6-speed manual transmission. At Rs 15.09 lakh (ex-showroom, India), the Style NSR costs Rs 20,000 lower than the equivalent Style variant.

The midsize SUV now gets Tyre Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) from the base variant, while the Style gets a new roof liner and a full-digital instrument cluster. Prices for the Kushaq are same, at Rs 11.29 lakh for the base 1.0 TSI Active variant going up to Rs 18.79 lakh for the top-end 1.5 TSI Style AT. The updated Kushaq is expected to launch by end of this month.
