Skoda Auto begins deliveries of the 1.5 litre Kushaq
Ever since Skoda Auto launched the Kushaq on June 28, they have received a formidable response from customers. The wait is finally over today, as Skoda starts deliveries of the 1.5 litre TSI-powered Kushaq today.
This 1.5 litre TSI engine produces 150PS and 250 Nm of torque. The engine can be mated with either a 6-speed manual transmission or a 7-speed DSG with paddle shifters. The gear ratios provide the ideal combination of sportiness and pleasure, as well as class-leading mileage. The manual gearbox version of the KUSHAQ gets 17.95 kmpl, while the automatic version gets 17.71 kmpl (ARAI certified).
The 1.5L TSI engine is part of the Volkswagen Group's worldwide recognised newest generation EVO series, and it has the first-in-segment Active Cylinder Technology (ACT). When the engine load is low, the ACT automatically shuts down two cylinders, improving fuel economy. This four-cylinder engine's cylinder blocks are plasma-coated.
Internal friction is reduced by the unique, thin powder-coated coating applied to the cylinder liners, which reduces fuel consumption. It also decreases the engine's thermal load due to improved heat distribution and dissipation in the combustion chamber.
Zac Hollis, Brand Director, Skoda Auto India said, "We are extremely thrilled to commence the deliveries of the 1.5L TSI Kushaq to customers. The fact that the 1.5L TSI engine can deliver 150PS and 250 Nm of torque with a fuel efficiency of 17.95 kmpl is an incredible testament to the power of TSI and the technologically advanced ACT system. The Kushaq is a vehicle specially designed and made in India. We are overwhelmed by the outstanding response to the car across India. I urge more and more customers to visit our showrooms and test drive the vehicle.''
