Looks like China will have to wait more for Skoda Rapid. Skoda is planning to launch the stylish and chic Skoda Rapid in China by March next year. The Chinese version of Skoda Rapid is actually based on Skoda Mission L and is expected to be placed between Skoda Fabia and Skoda Octavia also called Skoda Laura.

In China, Skoda will offer Rapid in 1.4 litre and 1.6 litre engines. When compared with the Indian variant of Rapid, here the sedan has a duo of 1.6 litre of engines. In China the engines are expected to be coupled with five-speed manual and six speed automatic gearbox.
