Skoda Rapid to have additional boot

Built on the revamped Polo platform, Skoda Rapid is reported to be launched on the Britain shores by end of the year, after its debut in the European region. Moreover, in terms of size and price, the Rapid is speculated to be placed between the Fabia hatchback and the Octavia sedan (known as Skoda Laura in India). The major difference between the Indian and the European Skoda Rapid would be the cargo box. The UK Rapid will now have the additional boot, rather it will be a well trimmed hatchback with improved premium interiors and VisionD impressions that is not available in the Indian Fabia hatchback.
