Skoda Hints At A New Top-spec Variant For The Kushaq

The Monte Carlo variant could be launched in the future with cosmetic enhancements and more features


  • Skoda Kushaq Monte Carlo could follow the footsteps of Rapid Monte Carlo in India.
  • It’s likely to come with additional features.
  • Kushaq to be launched in June 2021. Monte Carlo to be introduced later
  • It’s likely to be priced between Rs 9 lakh and Rs 17 lakh (ex-showroom).
  • Skoda also offers Monte Carlo variants in international markets like the similarly sized Kamiq.

The new Skoda Kushaq will initially be offered in three variants: Active, Ambition, and Style. While the top-end variant is generously loaded with features, there are certain misses when compared to the segment leader, the Creta. Now, Skoda India hinted it could launch a new top-spec Monte Carlo variant post the Kushaq’s market introduction in June. Our guess is that this variant will most likely be offered with all the missing features. 


Skoda offers the Monte Carlo variants in international models such as the Kamiq. In India, the same is offered in the Rapid, which comes with three exclusive colours: red, white, and silver. The Rapid Monte Carlo also features an all-black interior, black seat covers with red highlights and a sportier flat-bottom steering wheel. 


The Kushaq Monte Carlo is likely to boast similar cosmetic enhancements as well. The Tornado Red Kushaq with sportier alloy wheels and all-black interior with red highlights does seem tempting, right? It could also come with additional features such as a digital driver’s display, powered driver’s seat, or even a panoramic sunroof (it currently comes with a single pane unit). All these three wow features are currently missing in the Kushaq.

The Kushaq is likely to be priced between Rs 9 lakh and Rs 17 lakh (ex-showroom). The Monte Carlo, when launched, is likely to be priced Rs 50,000 over the top-spec Style variants. Considering it’s the sportier variant, it’s likely to be offered only with the 150PS 1.5-litre turbo-petrol engine. 


The Kushaq will face competition from the Hyundai Creta, Kia Seltos, and the upcoming Volkswagen Taigun.
