Our perfectly practical car
The Rapid is a practical all-rounder ready for the long motor way commute or the weekend excursions. The spacious Rapid has 550 litres of boot space with the seats up and a colossal 1490 with the seats down. Packed with space and safety features makes it comfortable for the whole family.
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.
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.
