Following a successful badge-engineering run with the Vento and Rapid sedans, Volkswagen and Skoda have embraced a much more differentiated strategy for their ‘India 2.0’ plan with their all-new midsize SUVs, the Volkswagen Taigun and Skoda Kushaq.

A Skoda Kushaq costs 10.78 lakh, while the Volkswagen Taigun costs 10.54 lakh. The Skoda Kushaq comes with just a 999 stroker motor and one fuel type: Volkswagen Taigun is available with just a 999 stroker motor and 1 fuel type: petrol.

Despite the fact these are virtually identical automobiles with the same foundations and a high degree of commonality, both of these Hyundai Creta-rivaling SUVs have distinct features that set them apart. We put the Volkswagen Taigun 1.0 TSI MT Topline variation (Rs 14.61 lakh) against the Skoda Kushaq 1.0 TSI MT Style variant (Rs 14.60 lakh) to see whether one is worth your money.
