Skoda Rapid spotted undergoing test drive

Skoda unveiled Rapid last year at the Frankfurt Motor Show as MissionL Concept, the company has not just one but two editions of Skoda Rapid sedan. Rapid present in India is the first model, it is made explicitly for India and resembles a lot with its sibling Vento. Rapid shares its platform with Vento and it would not be wrong to say that Rapid is a modified version of Vento with reworked front and rear fascias.

Rapid is a cheaper version of Vento (in terms of price), those who cannot afford to own a Vento because of its heavy pricing can opt for Rapid. Skoda is working towards the second version of Rapid which will be sold in the European markets. Volkswagen might believe that a value for money Skoda car could be the right product to tap into the segment that lies between B and C divisions. However Europeans may not prefer a boot-pasted hatchback as small cars like Polo and Fabia are selling in good numbers on European roads.

The reworked Rapid sedan dons an inclined and considerably thick C-Pillar complementary to MissionL concept and a liftback lid. Skoda may pick a powerful powerplant powering small cars from Volkswagen. Skoda has a wide range of engines to choose from be it TDI or TSI.  Skoda could roll out a RS version in coming years that will come equipped with lowered suspension, tricked-out interior, attractive wheels and a powerful engine under the hood. Skoda Rapid fills the gap between Skoda Octavia Tour (Laura’s antecedent).
