Skoda Kushaq Onyx Edition exterior, interior details
The Onyx Edition of the Kushaq gets the same exterior colour options as the standard model.

Apart from these changes, the Kushaq Onyx Edition’s exterior highlights include the faux diffuser element on the front bumper, chrome surround across the front grille and 16-inch wheels with plastic covers.
The interior of the Kushaq Onyx Editon sees no major changes either; it sports black fabric upholstery, a dual tone grey/white interior, a two-spoke steering wheel, chrome surrounds for the AC vents and a textured pattern on the dashboard.
