Exterior 

The car is absolutely sporty in terms of looks, the sportier lines are traveling across the vehicle and providing an incredible momentum in design. Those SUV things are selflessly creating an enthusiastic car. 

Front face

The work by Skoda is sharply conveying the character of the car. Skoda signature grille looking fabulous surrounded by chrome and connected with headlamps. The headlights are slimmer now which makes it more aggressive, the fog lamps are just below headlamp units. The good thing is that the main headlamp is LED but the indicators and the fog lamps are not and the price tag Skoda have pasted on the Kushaq won't deserve halogens. I love the treatment Skoda have done on the bumper which is giving it an interesting effect. The aggressiveness on the face creating a majestic stanza which moves ahead aggressively. 

Side profile 

Length of the car is very impressive and with respect to the segment the length is seems to be amazing. Sharp lines on the gates are giving a sporty touch to the car. The alloy design is going with the personality of the vehicle. Ground clearance is pretty good. The black cladding which have started from front continue to side making it solid and tough looking. Window area is big enough to draw plenty of airy feel in the cabin and the area is bounded by thin chrome. Get roof rails as well, SUV after all, a chrome treatment is there on the handle bars and get body coloured ORVMs. 

Back side 

The rear is very interesting indeed, the main highlight is L shaped tail lights, their Styling is giving a cool appeal to the SUV. You get big Skoda branding at the middle of the boot gate, it also features a straight chrome line on the gate too. That black cladding is present at the rear also. Roof mounted spoiler is not absent, sharp fin antenna along with electric sunroof not like Octavia


Interior 

Whole cabin is submerged in black with slight use of grey thus the cabin feel more sportier. From inside the SUV is looking premium and rich in quality. 

Rear seats, seats get dual colour treatment with three adjustable headrests. Here you get center armrest with cup holders, rear AC vents and child seat mount. The cabin have enough amount of space for three people. 

Front seats, top of line quality material Skoda have used for the Kushaq which increases the premium appeal. Here you get cool ventilated seats front only which is a helpful feature for those places where winter vacations are not listed. 

Dashboard, nicely decorated dash with the help of great quality material. The gloss black finishing just takes up the view, all the elements are nicely going with the flow. The AC vents at the corner are very stylish along with chrome touches, too much of chrome have been used in this car. It get new infotainment system and brand filled the system with features, below that you get two AC vents. The best thing about this is that it won't have physical buttons for AC it get a touch panal and seriously speaking this thing is very cool for me. You get wireless charging, cup holders, amazing gear knob and a manual hand brake. Arm rest is there with storage and that Skoda sliding arm rest thing is there too.

Coming to the steering wheel, its a new two spoke wheel which we have seen in Octavia as well and literally I love it, it get volume controls and other controls, awesome steering wheel. 

Instrument cluster is not intersting at all, cluster is not a fully digital unit which kind of sad because now it look old and in this type of price the digital unit should be there. The left side of the cluster is for tachometer and the right side shows you speed. At the center it get digital unit which shows you many things about the vehicle.


Overall the car is awesome it terms of looks, interior, engines and power. 

This is new Skoda Kushaq..............

Does Aprilia RS 457 has that Aprilia thing? | Price, Features, Power, Engine | HighRPM

The smell of adrenaline is soothing to those who know how to push their limits, who know how to lick the track, who know how to scare their rivals, who know how to go fast while standing with the fasters, and to those who are coming out from Aprilia's factory where their blood has to experience the addition of aggressiveness.  Aprilia has launched the all-new Aprilia RS457. Even though this one has a small engine unlike Aprilia, it has that same level of craziness, zest, and quality as Aprilia.  There is one more fact about this bike which is a proud moment for all Indians because this Aprilia is completely built in India. The bike has charming looks as you expect from Aprilia, and along with looks the quality and the fit finish of this bike are just top-notch. This bike is standing against the BMW G 310RR , KTM RC 390 , newly launched Yamaha R3, TVS Apache 310RR, and none other than the Kawasaki Ninja 300 and Ninja 400 .  The price of Aprilia RS 457 So the bike is only availabl

Which one you should buy, the Kawasaki Ninja 400 or the Aprilia RS 457? | HighRPM

Recently, in December 2023, Aprilia launched its all-new Aprilia RS 457 , the first made-in-India Italian bike. The Aprilia is a brand which is known for its powerful, big, and track-centric machines. This RS 457 has less power than its other sibling but can shake the segment with its amazing power-to-weight ratio and Aprilia's fit finish. This Aprilia has some rivals in the market but in my opinion, the most strong one is from a family of monsters like Aprilia RS 457. This rival has been present in the industry for years and has won many hearts too, I'm talking about the Kawasaki Ninja 400 .   These two bikes are superb at their job and this thing leads to confusion. In terms of looks personally, to me Aprilia is looking more dashing than Ninja, now it doesn't mean that Ninja is not a handsome bike there is no doubt but for me, Aprilia is a bit more sexier. The topic to discuss is definitely not looks, it's about power, price, and other things, so, drop your gears and
