Update Skoda Rapid Spaceback makes us think about its prospects in our country. After the premiere of the original hatchback at the Frankfurt motor show 2013 the brand seriously wanted to bring him to our country. Thus, unlike the saloon, the Spaceback to collect on the spot no one had planned: it was supposed to be the imported model to more affluent youth. However, by autumn 2014, Skoda has abandoned the venture, citing the tough market situation and the availability of alternatives in the form of the actual Rapid and the Fabia hatchback. Of course, today then car market continues to fall for many months in a row, but “Fabia” on it is long gone. Is it possible that the Rapid Spaceback a second chance?
