Skoda Kushaq Gets New Non-Sunroof Style Variant; Priced At Rs 15.09 lakh
- New Kushaq Style NSR misses out on a sunroof and some other kit
- Kushaq Style now gets the 8.0-inch digital instrument cluster
- Style NSR only available with 1.0 TSI engine and manual gearbox
Skoda has added a new non-sunroof (NSR) Style variant to the Kushaq line-up. The new variant, priced at Rs. 15.09 lakh (ex-showroom, India) is about Rs.20,000 more affordable than the regular Kushaq Style and misses out on some equipment as compared to the latter. The new Style NSR is additionally only available with the 1.0 TSI engine and a manual gearbox. The variant lacks the option of the 6-speed torque converter automatic gearbox – it is available on the standard 1.0 TSI Style variant.
Moving to the equipment list, as the name suggests, the Style NSR lacks the option of a sunroof but also misses out on some other kit offered on the standard Style trim. It should be noted that Skoda has updated the regular Style variant to now get the 8.0-inch digital instrument cluster that's also offered on the Monte Carlo. The Style NSR however misses out on the digital dials carrying forward with the regular analogue instrument cluster with a multi-information display. The Style NSR also misses out on kit such as rain-sensing wipers and an auto-dimming rear view mirror offered on the regular Style.
