Just a few weeks ago, the Czech automaker Skoda’s Indian subsidiary, Skoda Auto India, launched the new Kushaq Onyx Plus compact SUV. This new model is based on the Onyx trim, which is the second base variant of this popular SUV. The model features some aesthetic alterations, and recently, a video of its walkaround was shared online. The video shows the new Skoda Kushaq Onyx Plus variant in detail.
The video of the Skoda Kushaq Onyx Plus variant comes courtesy of GA Automotive, and it was uploaded on their channel. It starts off with the presenter showing the newly launched Kushaq Onyx Plus variant parked inside the showroom. He mentions that for this new variant, the company provided it with aesthetic differences on the outside and the inside.
Following this, the video mentions that the new Kushaq Onyx Plus variant will come with a single powertrain option. The presenter states that the company is only offering this variant with the 1.0-liter turbocharged 3-cylinder petrol engine. This powerplant is capable of producing 114 bhp of power and 178 Nm of torque. Next up, he adds that this variant is exclusively available with the manual transmission only and no other transmission options. He also adds that it only comes with Candy White and Carbon Steel color choices.

Next up, the presenter starts off with the front-end design of the new Kushaq Onyx Plus. He starts with the headlights, stating that they come equipped with the same LED-based projector headlamps and LED DRLs.
