New Delhi: Czech automobile manufacturer Skoda will unveil the much-hyped compact SUV Kushaq on March 18, 2021.

The rear too gets the split tail light treatment with a chunky Skoda logo in the middle. The car has a rugged yet sophisticated look and can be seen sporting large air intakes at the front and skid plates.
