Seat to unleash its own version of European Skoda Rapid

Seat Toledo, which is a concept car, will debut at the Paris Motor Show by the end of 2013. Seat Toledo is a concept car. Volkswagen, Skoda and Seat have a special relationship as they share the same roof for badge engineering. The media reports suggest that Toledo Concept is not a different car but it is highly awaited European Skoda Rapid. The design of Toledo Concept has many similarities with Mission L Concept. Even the design language is similar. It has sharp lines on bumper, bonnet and lights which show that it has taken lessons from Volkswagen family design for the front of the car. It looks simple from the front.

Rapid will made use of the trademark Skoda Chrome strip. It will be placed at the top of the honeycomb grill. It will be just similar to the Skoda logo which Skoda MissionL Concept is using. There are many other features in the car which are designed after being influenced by Volkswagen design language. Apart from the front of the car, the Rapid will have the design for side profile similar to the Volkswagen, like it will have shorter boot. From outside one could see a coupe like design. Also, it will have sloping roof. But, even though the boot looks short from outside but inside of it there is a huge space. The space in the boot is adjustable. The capacity of boot is 500-litres but the space can be increased by folding the rear bench. It looks like more practical car as it is big on interior space.

Low profile tyres and alloys add more appeal to the car. If we compare rear with the front, one would find that rear is sharper. There are distinct cuts in the rear bumper where the number plate is adjusted on boot-lid with integrated spoiler. Besides, not only from outside but also from inside, the car has taken a lot from its sister offerings across other badges. The dual tone dash comes with grey and black combination. Also, it has been given a touch screen infotainment system at the centre which makes it easy for the drivers to use it comfortably. Rapid comes with 1.2 and 1.4 L TSI engines and 1.6 L TDI engine.
