Skoda Auto has launched the much awaited Monte Carlo edition of its Kushaq SUV in the Indian market. Skoda launched its compact SUV Kushak in the Indian market in June 2021. This SUV has received tremendous response from the car buyers. It is based on the MQB-AO-IN platform, also used in the VW Taigun and koda Slavia sedans. Let’s take a look at the new Skoda Kushaq Monte Carlo
Skoda Kushaq Exterior
Skoda Kushaq Monte Carlo Edition looks sportier than the regular model. This edition has been offered exclusively in two color options - Tornado Red and Candy White. The overall design is similar to the regular model, however, to distinguish it from the regular model, the Skoda Kushaq Monte Carlo edition gets glossy black surrounds around the butterfly-pattern multi-slat grille and a glossy black front diffuser.
The rear section features glossy black inscriptions of Skoda and Kushaq lettering. Moreover, it also gets a dual-tone spoiler, and glossy black rear diffuser and trunk garnish. The vehicle gets crystalline split LED tail lamps that accentuate the overall style. The vehicle gets a black roof or as the company calls it, glossy carbon steel paint for the roof and matte black roof rails.
The Skoda Kushaq Monte Carlo Edition gets dual-tone upholstery in red and black colours. It gets dual-tone ventilated front leather seats with Monte Carlo Inscription. Two of the rear headrests also feature the Monte Carlo inscription. Additional styling elements include aluminium pedals and red ambient lighting on the passenger side of the dashboard. Moreover, red stitching can be seen on the door armrest and the centre armrest.
The dashboard is adorned by a 10-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Skoda Play Apps in a red theme.
