This is one of the first official pictures of the ŠKODA Rapid, the next addition to our range of cars. It’s due to be officially unveiled to the public in September and will go on sale in the UK during Q4 this year. It shows clearly the new design language being developed by Jozef Kaban, ŠKODA’s Chief Designer, and features the new badge that was first seen on the Citigo.
The Rapid is a family hatchback that will sit between the Fabia and Octavia in our range. It will offer ŠKODA’s core values of great value for money, lots of space and clever features.
This is a model which sets benchmarks in the compact saloon segment," said ŠKODA CEO Prof Dr Winfried Vahland. "The ŠKODA 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."
