Skoda Auto India has launched the Onyx automatic variant of its renowned Kushaq SUV. With an ex-showroom price tag of Rs 13.49 lakh, the Kushaq Onyx AT is touted as the most reasonably priced automatic SUV in its segment. On the mechanical front, the car is powered by a 1.0-litre three-cylinder TSI turbocharged petrol engine. For the uninitiated, the Kushaq Onyx version was first introduced by the Czech carmaker last year but was limited to the manual gearbox. Skoda has now expanded the range by including the six-speed torque converter automatic gearbox. The powertrain setup generates 114bhp of maximum power and 178Nm of peak torque.
