Here’s a recent digital rendering of the special Monte Carlo edition of the Skoda Kushaq. Doesn't it look sportier than the regular model?
Recently, the Czech carmaker Skoda revealed its all-new compact SUV named Kushaq. It will be the company’s first offering to be based on the much-awaited MQB-AO-IN platform. The SUV will be launched in the Indian market in the coming months and will rival the likes of Hyundai Creta, Kia Seltos and Nissan Kicks. Earlier, we thought if Skoda Kushaq would get the signature ‘Monte Carlo’ treatment, and now we can finally have look at a realistic illustration of what the bolder version of the Skoda Kushaq could look like. This digital rendering has been made by our in-house artist Shoeb R. Kalania. Watch the video embedded below.
The first Skoda vehicle to feature the Monte Carlo livery in India was the second-gen Fabia. Now, Skoda Rapid is the only car to be sold in this special edition in India. Talking about this rendering, the upcoming Skoda SUV is now painted in Flash Red colour shade and also features two-tone alloy units, a blacked-out front grille and a skid plate. Moreover, it also employs black colour on side mirrors. All the chrome inserts around the body of the SUV has been removed. At last, to complete the Monte Carlo makeover, the roof rails of the SUV have also been blacked out. Like Skoda Rapid, the Monte Carlo version of Kushaq looks amazing.
Even the production-spec model of the SUV, which was showcased recently, looks quite sporty and aggressive. Inside, the cabin of the Skoda Kushaq Monte Carlo is likely to get a sporty steering wheel, stainless steel foot pedals, two-tone red-black Monte Carlo trademark on seats and so on. The all-new Skoda Kushaq is expected to hit the Indian shores in June 2021. It will derive power from a 1.0-litre and 1.5-litre turbocharged petrol engine. The former will produce 115 PS of peak power, while the latter is capable of shredding out power outputs of 150 PS. Transmission duties will be done by a 6-speed MT, 6-speed AT or a 7-speed DCT. In terms of dimensions, the Skoda Kushaq is 4,225 mm long, 1,760 mm wide and 1,612 mm tall.
