The New Skoda Rapid – a worthy successor after all

Skoda, the renowned Czech car manufacturer, has always been famous for its premium car offerings that provide customers with luxurious travel experience at competitive prices. As a result, new launches from Skoda are always sought after by customers looking for luxury and comfort. Same is the case with the New Skoda Rapid.

With the latest variant of its Rapid series, New Skoda Rapid, upgraded after five years, the company has managed to grab all the attention from the prospective customers. Let’s have a look at the key features of the New Skoda Rapid.


Skoda has offered a matured look to  the front of the car with a multi slated grill marked by chrome borders, similar to those in Octavia and Superb. Revamped front bumper sports upgraded fog lights and a lip spoiler. The new LED headlamps complement the looks extremely well. Skoda has not tinkered with the side profile in Skoda Rapid other than introducing new 15-inch alloys, chrome moulding on the deck lid and door handles. On the rear side, an integrated spoiler complements the upgraded rear lamps.


Though the interiors might look similar at the first glance, a closer look will reveal the subtle changes introduced in the New Skoda Rapid. The dashboard is now done in a dual tone finish and complements the new 6.5-inch touch screen infotainment system and cruise control option. Then there are the rain sensing wipers, adjustable steering wheel, air cooled glovebox and automatic climate control to make it a well-rounded family car. Skoda has done away with the push start-stop option and the rear-view camera. The seats are comfortable with plenty of legroom for extended travelling.
