At this year’s Frankfurt Motor Show, Skoda headlined its stand with the
world premiere of the new Rapid Spaceback. A redesigned Skoda Yeti also featured.
The Volkswagen-owned Czech brand plans to increase its sales to at least 1.5 million per year by 2018. The Rapid will
play an important part in achieving the goal.
The Skoda Rapid Spaceback combines dynamically fresh design with the Skoda qualities that we expect and thus
distinguishes itself both visually and functionally.
Visually clear and distinct, the Skoda Rapid Spaceback has the new Skoda design. Compared with conventional hatchback
models, the car appears significantly longer when viewed from the side. The Rapid Spaceback has many optional features,
such as a large panoramic sunroof and a long rear window. The new brand styling marks the front: A new logo on the bonnet
‘nose’, a distinctive grille, headlamps and fog lights arranged in a cloverleaf pattern. The rear design underscores
horizontal lines and sports Skoda’s typical ‘C’-shaped taillights.
The interior appears fresh and youthful. Rapid Spaceback customers can choose new 3-spoke steering wheels, new fabrics
and new trim lines. In addition to being stylishly sporty, the interior offers plenty of room for all occupants.
For example, passengers in the rear enjoy the most knee room and headroom in the segment, while the boot sets new
standards with its volume of 415 to 1,380 litres.
The Skoda Rapid Spaceback is a smart compact that includes many ‘Simply Clever’ solutions, such as the double cargo
floor in the boot, which divides the floor into two horizontal compartments when needed, an ice scraper inside the fuel
filler flap, many holders for daily items, restraining nets and hooks.
The range of engines includes four petrol and two diesel versions. Shortly after market launch of the Rapid Spaceback,
Skoda will introduce a GreenLine version with 99 g CO2 emissions per kilometre. In terms of safety, the
Rapid Spaceback protects occupants with numerous active and passive safety features.
