Skoda Rapid European version official pictures swarm in

The Skoda Rapid has been more than what is called success and has done what Skoda Fabia did in the hatchback segment. Now that the Rapid has head to Europe and will make official appearance at the upcoming Paris Motor Show, Skoda has released the first set of images to finally silence the rising anticipation and also gave a breather to graphic designers who have recently been coming up with several possible representations of the European Rapid. In India the Skoda Rapid price is Rs 6.90 lakh and price details of the European version are still awaited.

It was at the Frankfurt Auto Show in 2011 that the rapid appeared and awed the auto enthusiasts in Europe and it was then believed that it will be making a debut at the Paris Motor Show scheduled to be held in September. So, what makes the Rapid so appealing? Based on the MissionL concept, the Rapid sedan for Europe will have the same clean and elegant design philosophy as is applied to the Indian version. The MissionL concept is in fact the design philosophy that Skoda will be imbibing to all its future cars just as the Fluidic design is to Hyundai that it has debuted on the Hyundai Verna Fluidic.

The European Skoda Rapid will be a full sedan measuring 4.8 m and 1.7 m wide and will be a five seater as the India Rapid is. New headlamps, newly designed fog lamps and a new grille along with the new bumper are customary touches to the already awesome appearance of the Rapid sedan. In Europe, Skoda will price the new Rapid between the Fabia hatchback and the premium sedan Skoda Octavia. An early October sale is what is expected. With the Rapid sedan, Skoda is hoped to cash in the affordability, low emissions and high performance of the car.
