₹15k-20k discount on Skoda Kushaq

The semiconductor chip shortage is a nightmare for carmakers and consumers. The shortage has caused huge waiting periods for many cars leading to lots of losses for the brands. Now, the shortage has caused manufacturers to delete features as well. Due to the chip shortage, Skoda has deleted the mirror folding function along with the auto-folding feature. To make up for the feature deletion, Skoda is offering a discount of ₹15k-₹20k on the Style variant of the Kushaq. Customers can avail of this discount at the time of purchase and get the folding mirror function added for the same cost when it comes back in stock. This comes as a welcome move and surely doesn’t make the customers feel short-changed.

A quick recap

In terms of design, the Skoda Kushaq offers a very sharp and edgy look all around. The traditional butterfly grille is now thicker and gets a piano black finish. The headlamps offer a contrasting look to the grille with their slim and edgy design. The bumper is plastic clad and gets a silver scuff plate. The side profile is rather simple, with a single character line that starts from the badge on the fender and runs to the rear of the car. We get to see wheel arches as well, which neatly complement the alloy wheels.
