As its name suggests, the new ŠKODA Rapid Spaceback is a hatchback with space. It sounds simple enough, but being so compact and spacious at once is only possible with the kind of thoughtful, practical design and added visual flair that ŠKODA practises.
The exterior of the Rapid Spaceback is defined by long, clean lines, which unite body and glass for a smooth, assured silhouette. Functionality and beauty combine in the panoramic sunroof, available on the SE Sport, which further enhances the car’s sense of openness and space by bringing in masses of natural light.
Space is by no means at a premium in the Rapid Spaceback. Clever storage solutions feature throughout, including a compartment in the front centre armrest and a fold-down drinks holder between the rear seats, enabling four passengers to fit comfortably. With 415 litres of boot space – expandable to 1,381 litres with the rear seats down – you’ll rarely have to leave anything at home.
Engines and Performance
The foundations of the Rapid Spaceback engine range are a 1.2-litre TSI and 1.4-litre TDI, both of which pack 88bhp. The former delivers a combined fuel economy of around 60.1mpg, whilst the latter achieves a maximum of 78.5mpg, taking you further with each fill-up. Like all diesel engines in the range, it emits below 100g/km of CO 2, exempting the car from vehicle excise duty. For those looking for greater power, the 1.6-litre TDI delivers 113bhp, and accelerates from 0-62mph in 9.9 seconds.
Safety and Technology
You can rely on the Rapid Spaceback to keep you safe on the road. Should the large airbags deploy, front seat belt pretensioners work in tandem to keep you in your seat and reduce injury. Daytime running lights come as standard and fog lights are included at the SE Tech trim level with cornering capabilities on the SE Sport.
Technology designed with you in mind is integrated throughout. Acoustic rear parking sensors, fitted in the SE Tech, make the end of each day easier. All drives will be enjoyable thanks to the addition of six loudspeakers and DAB digital radio.
