Skoda had also dropped the prices of the Kushaq back in October 2023 for a limited period. Then, the prices went back up and breached the Rs. 11.0 lakh mark. In that October 2023 price drop, the Kushaq base model was selling for Rs. 10.89 lakh. This is the same as the current starting price. At the time, Skoda increased the prices of the Kushaq under the cover of dropping the base variant’s price. This time, they have limited this tactic to the Slavia. Kushaq gets a proper price drop.

Monte Carlo Now Cheaper Than Style/Prestige

It’s worth noting that the Monte Carlo variant, which was a special edition based on the Style variant, is now cheaper than the Prestige variant (current new Kushaq top model). The Monte Carlo variant of the Kushaq now costs Rs. 50,000 less than the Kushaq new top model (Prestige).

Arrogance/Confidence Shattered

Back in October 2023, the Kushaq became the first C-SUV to cross the Rs. 20.0 lakh (ex-showroom) price mark. Even the larger and more feature-loaded Seltos facelift was at the time carrying an ex-showroom price tag of Rs. 19.99 lakh. So, it was shocking to see Skoda’s approach by becoming the first one to cross the psychological barrier of Rs. 20.0 lakh price limit.

It appears that the confidence (assuming it was confidence) is now shattered. The Monte Carlo variant now costs Rs. 18.30 lakh, which is a fair bit less than the Rs. 20.0 lakh mark and Rs. 2.19 lakh less than the older price tag of Rs. 20.49 lakh (ex-showroom). Meanwhile, Skoda’s breach of the barrier allowed others to cross the limit also and they continue to remain over Rs. 20.0 lakh. Creta, Seltos, Hyryder and Grand Vitara, all cost more than Rs. 20.0 lakh.
