    As part of the Matte edition package, the Kushaq gets the Carbon Steel exterior paint shade finished in matte, along with gloss black finishing for the door handles, wing mirrors and the rear spoiler. The chrome finish for the grille, tailgate garnish and window lining, however, have been retained as is. A similar treatment was also meted out to the Volkswagen Taigun recently.

    The Matte Edition's equipment list is based on the top-spec Style trim, but notably, it gets the larger 10.0-inch touchscreen from the Monte Carlo trim with wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. It also gets a 6-speaker sound system with a sub-woofer over the Style trim. 

    As for the pricing, the new edition costs Rs 40,000 more than the standard Kushaq Style variant. Prices for the Kushaq Matte edition start at Rs 16.19 lakh for the 1.0 TSI manual, Rs 17.79 lakh for the 1.0 TSI automatic, Rs 18.19 lakh for the 1.5 TSI manual and Rs 19.39 lakh for the top-spec 1.5 TSI automatic.

    Skoda Kushaq Matte edition: rivals in India

    With the introduction of the Matte edition, Skoda wants to keep the Kushaq line-up fresh as there is no major update planned for the Kushaq and the Slavia in the near future. With the Kushaq Monte Carlo getting its due success and carving its own niche, Skoda hopes this new edition will follow the Monte Carlo’s steps.

    The Kushaq Matte edition will continue to rival SUVs like its platform-sibling Volkswagen Taigun, the Hyundai Creta, Kia Seltos – which has a facelift due soon – the Maruti Grand Vitara and Toyota Hyryder, as well as the upcoming Honda Elevate. It's worth mentioning that some of its rivals also get such special editions – the Seltos has the X-Line, Creta has the Knight Edition, Grand Vitara has the Black Edition and, as mentioned, the Taigun also gets a Matte Edition. 

    Skoda India also recently conducted a study which concluded that nine out of 10 Indian car buyers now seek models with a safety rating. Read more on that here.

    Poll of the month

    At Rs 1.85 lakh, the Bajaj Pulsar NS400Z is the most affordable 40hp bike in India. Would you pick it over similarly priced bikes with less power and features?

    Yes, 40hp at this price is unheard of!



    No, it's a decade-old bike in a revamped suit.



    Great value but doesn't look unique enough.
