When it comes to paints, one of the most beautiful looking ones is those that have the sleek matte finish. A few years ago, getting matte-finished paint was a novelty that was only offered with premium automobiles or with an aftermarket paint job. However, things have changed, and a few prominent automakers are now offering this beautiful finish on some of the most popular cars in the country. If you want to know which cars in India come with a factory matte paint job, then here is the full list.
Skoda India recently launched its popular mid-size sedan, Slavia’s Matte Edition in India. The company offers the top-of-the-line models with the new matte Carbon Steel exterior paint color. This new model has been priced with a starting price of Rs 15.52 lakh to Rs 19.12 lakh (ex-showroom). The Skoda Slavia Matte Edition comes available with two powertrain options. The first is a 1.0-litre three-cylinder turbocharged petrol engine, and the other is a 1.5-litre four-cylinder turbocharged petrol engine.
Just like the Slavia, the Skoda Kushaq also recently received the Matte Edition model. The company has launched the Kushaq Matte Edition with a starting price of Rs 16.19 lakh (ex-showroom). This exclusive paint option is Rs 40,000 more expensive than the standard variant. Just like the Slavia, this mid-SUV also comes equipped with the same powertrains. It also gets a 1.0-litre three-cylinder turbocharged petrol engine and a 1.5-litre four-cylinder turbocharged petrol engine as options.

Kia Seltos X-Line
Kia India was one of the first automakers to start the matte finish trends in the country.
