    Skoda has launched the new Kushaq Onyx Edition for Rs 12.39 lakh – Rs 80,000 more than the base Active trim. The Onyx Edition sits between the Active and the mid-spec Ambition Classic trims, and is only available with the 1.0-litre turbo-petrol powertrain.

    Skoda Kushaq Onyx Edition exterior, interior details

    The biggest change on the exterior of the Onyx Edition is the stylised grey graphics on the doors, and it also gets ‘Onyx’ badging on the B-Pillar. Apart from that, the special edition also gets faux diffuser on the front bumper, chrome surrounds on the front grille and 16-inch steel wheels with newly designed plastic covers. 

    The interior gets minor changes – there's Onyx badging on the scuff plates and headrests, black and grey interior colour theme, two-spoke steering wheel, chrome surrounds on the AC vents and a textured pattern on the dashboard. 

    Skoda Kushaq Onyx Edition features 

    The Onyx Edition gets certain additional features over the Kushaq’s base Ambition trim. This includes LED headlights, fog lamps, a rear wiper with a washer, a rear defogger, and automatic climate control with an air purifier. Other important features include a 7-inch touchscreen, 6-speaker audio system and height adjustable driver’s seat.

    As far as safety goes, the Kushaq Onyx Edition gets dual front airbags, ESP, three-point seatbelts for all passengers, Tyre Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) and ISOFIX anchorages. The Kushaq also secured a full five-star rating under Global NCAP’s new protocol for crash tests.

    Skoda Kushaq Onyx Edition powertrain details

    As mentioned before, the Onyx Edition sits between the entry-level Active and mid-spec Ambition Classic trims, which are available only with the 115hp, 1.0-litre turbo-petrol engine. The Onyx, therefore, also gets the 1.0 engine as its sole option, with automatic transmission not available at launch. However, sources tell us that a 6-speed torque converter automatic will likely come at a later stage.

    Skoda Kushaq rivals

    The Kushaq takes on the crowded midsize SUV space with rivals like the Maruti Suzuki Grand Vitara, Toyota Hyryder, Hyundai Creta, Kia Seltos, MG Astor and the Volkswagen Taigun.

    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.
