New ŠKODA Rapid

Designed to bring comfort and luxury to all journeys, the ŠKODA Rapid is an ideal family car.A ŠKODA to the core, the updated Rapid exemplifies the brand’s arresting modern design language, commitment to practicality and outstanding value for money.

Clear lines and angles inspired by Bohemian crystal production dominate the expressive body of the ŠKODA Rapid. It is united by the interplay of its elements; the confident shoulder line, for instance, terminates at the edge of the distinctive C-shaped rear lights. For a sporting edge, opt for 15, 16 or 17-inch alloy wheels which complement the bold grille with its 19 fins.

The Rapid’s dynamic and precise lines follow through from the exterior, informing the design of the dashboard. The interior is as convenient as it is stylish, with a clear, informative instrument panel and plenty of clever storage compartments, depending on the trim level selected. You won’t want for boot space, either. 550 litres can hold all the essentials your family needs for trips away and with the rear seats folded you have access to a vast 1,490 litres.

Engines and Performance

Kicking off the engine range is a 1.2-litre TSI petrol engine which is powerful enough to carry a full load at 88bhp. It saves you money and is friendly on the environment, emitting 107g/km of CO 2. Featuring a seven-speed direct-shift gearbox, it optimises your gear changes by keeping the engine at optimal revs. The 1.4-litre TSI tops the petrol range and returns a powerful 123bhp for stimulating driving (SE only).

Representing diesel is the environmentally friendly 1.4-litre TDI, available with or without a DSG. It packs 88bhp and emits just 94-99g/km of CO 2, exempting it from vehicle excise duty. The 1.6-litre TDI at the top of the range is similarly exempt, but delivers a formidable 113bhp.​

Safety and Technology

Safety is paramount in the new Rapid, with airbags located to the front and side of the driver and passenger and in the curtain area, providing high levels of protection. To help prevent a collision, electronic stability control counteracts oversteer and understeer.

Amundsen satellite navigation, available at the SE trim level and above, will get you where you need to be. Thanks to the air conditioning and upgrades of climate control, you and your family will be kept cool along the way.​
