Skoda India has launched the Kushaq Monte Carlo Edition at a starting price of Rs 15.99 Lakhs (Ex. Showroom, India) in the country. To be available in a total of four variants, Skoda Kushaq Monte Carlo is offered with both the 1.0L TSI and 1.5L TSI petrol engines with manual as well as automatic transmission choices. For those asking, the Monte Carlo edition pays homage to Skoda’s motorsport heritage and Rallye Monte Carlo while the Kushaq is the second company model to adorn this exclusive badge in India.
Skoda Kushaq Monte Carlo is exclusively offered in Tornado Red and Candy White colours. It features a couple of black glossy exterior elements in the form of front grille and ORVMs. The SUV rides on 17-inch dual-tone Vega alloy wheels which have been borrowed from the OCTAVIA vRS 245. It also flaunts a Monte Carlo fender garnish in place of the Skoda badge. The roof comes in contrasting glossy Carbon Steel paint with Matte Black roof rails and dark chrome external door handles. The rear profile is dominated by a dual tone tailgate spoiler and a diffuser beneath the rear bumper, both of which are finished in Glossy Black. Moreover, one also gets a trunk garnish at the door of the boot. The 1.5L trim distinguishes itself from the 1.0L grade by the inclusion of Sporty Red calipers in the front wheels.
