Skoda has recently updated the mid-spec variant of their popular compact SUV, the Kushaq. The 2024 Ambition variant comes with some additional features and price revisions. With the help of a YouTube video uploaded by Yash9W, let’s understand what changes have been made. The video shows a red-coloured Skoda Kushaq, which is the Ambition variant powered by the 1.0-litre three-cylinder TSI engine.

The YouTuber starts with the front look of the car. At the front, the SUV comes equipped with LED headlights with DRLs. Notably, the Kushaq does not come with an all-LED setup, as the indicators and fog lights are halogen, even in the higher variant. A big gloss black grille surrounded by a chrome element can be seen. Additionally, it comes with a gunmetal grey skid plate.

Coming to the side, the SUV comes with silver-coloured 16-inch alloy wheels. A black-coloured body cladding can be seen around the car to give it that macho look. This variant offers a shark fin antenna, roof rails, and electrically adjustable and foldable ORVMs. Features such as push-button start, request sensors on the door, chrome door handles, panoramic sunroof, and waistline chrome are seen only in the top-end variant.

At the rear, the Kushaq comes equipped with LED taillights with halogen indicators and a reverse light. Other features include a rear wiper with washer and defogger. Additionally, it offers three reverse parking sensors along with a camera, which helps with easy maneuverability.
