Skoda Auto launches the Kushaq Monte Carlo edition. Check features, price

Czech automajor Skoda Auto India today launched the Monte Carlo edition of the Kushaq compact SUV with sporty black design cues. The Skoda Kushaq Monte Carlo edition will be presented at 15,99,000 lakh (ex-showroom) for the 1.0 TSI 6-speed manual, capping at 19,49,000 lakh (ex-showroom) for the 1.5 TSI 7-speed DSG.

This edition of the Kushaq will be available exclusively in Tornado Red and Candy White colors. In addition, the 1.0 TSI of the Kushaq Monte Carlo compact SUV is standard with start-stop recovery.

The Kushaq Monte Carlo retains the signature Skoda grille which features a gloss black surround with similar ORVMs. The 17-inch alloy wheels are taken directly from the Octavia vRS 245. This new model now features Monte Carlo fender trim in place of the Skoda badge.

While the body color offers a choice of Tornado Red and Candy White, the roof comes in a contrasting gloss carbon steel paint job that gives the Monte Carlo a prominent two-tone aesthetic. The roof comes standard with a power sunroof with anti-pinch technology. The carbon steel roof complements the matte black roof rails that run along the edge and the dark chrome exterior door handles below.

The roof ends where the two-tone tailgate spoiler begins. Further down the rear is a boot lid trim and a diffuser under the rear bumper, both in gloss black. This is also balanced with a gloss black diffuser at the front of the Monte Carlo. Skoda and Kushaq chrome lettering on the rear are now Glossy Black. Just like the L-shaped contours for the front bumper air vents.

In the first-ever visual differentiator between the 1.0 TSI and 1.5 TSI engines, the Monte Carlo 1.5 TSI will have Sporty Red calipers in the front wheels, setting it apart from its stablemate 1.0 TSI.

The Monte Carlo’s cabin carries on the motorsport heritage through luxury interiors with two-tone red and black upholstery and Ruby Red Metallic inserts. The front has red and black leather ventilated seats with ‘MONTE CARLO’ inscribed in the headrests. The rear features red and black leatherette seats with “MONTE CARLO” lettering in two of the headrests. The leather trim of the 2-spoke multifunction steering is also adorned with delightful red stitching. Red ambient lighting on the front passenger dashboard lends a warm red aura to the Monte Carlo’s cabin.

The driver’s instrument console gets an 8-inch Skoda Virtual Cockpit with a red theme. The center of the dashboard hosts a 25.4 cm infotainment system with Skoda Play apps and a red theme.

Zac Hollis, Brand Director, ŠKODA AUTO India, said: “With our recent successes and our biggest month in India, it was only fitting that we celebrate this with a badge that embodies the winning spirit at ŠKODA. . The Monte Carlo is a car that appeals to the heart, to one willing to go the extra mile for its unique, subtle and sporty aesthetic. The Monte Carlo showcases an understated sense of style. It’s a tribute to the fact that you’re driving a name steeped in pedigree and heritage from the sport of rallying, providing an exciting experience.”
