Skoda Kushaq Onyx Plus and Slavia Ambition Plus launched with new features

The Skoda Kushaq Onyx Plus is only available with manual transmission while the Slavia Ambition Plus is available with both manual and automatic transmission.

Kushaq Onyx Plus:

Skoda India has introduced the Kushaq Onyx Plus trim for its SUV lineup. This trim offers enhanced design features and exclusive exchange and corporate offers for a limited time, aiming to attract Indian buyers during the festive season.

The Kushaq Onyx Plus is exclusively available with a manual transmission. It comes at an attractive price point of Rs. 11,59,000 (ex-showroom). Notably, this pricing is Rs. 80,000 less than the Onyx Edition 1.0L TSI MT (ex-showroom). Despite the lower price, it offers features like 16″ Grus alloy wheels, window chrome garnish, grill garnish, and trunk chrome garnish, making it a great value-for-money option.

Skoda offers the Kushaq Onyx Plus in two color options: Candy White and Carbon Steel. This variant competes with rivals such as the recently launched Honda Elevate, Hyundai Creta, Kia Seltos, MG Astor, Maruti Suzuki Grand Vitara, Toyota HyRyder, and its sibling, the VW Taigun.
