Skoda Rapid Unveiled

Skoda has unveiled the Rapid, a new compact saloon that will go on sale around Europe in the autumn as part of its ‘resolute model offensive’.

“This is a model which sets benchmarks in the compact saloon segment,” said Skoda CEO Winfried Vahland.

“The Skoda Rapid is a roomy, elegant and at the same time an affordable car for the whole family, impressing with clever solutions, cutting-edge technology and high economy.

“In short, it is a car permitting mobility in a comfortable, reasonably priced and environmentally friendly package. The right car at the right time.”

It will be shown for the first time at the Paris Auto Show, but for now the only details to go on are that it will be 4.48 meters long and 1.7 meters wide, and buyers will have a choice of five petrol and two diesel engines.
