As soon as Skoda has unveiled its new hatchback, Scala, immediately rumors that the car zamenet the model number of the existing Rapid. However, it later emerged that the hatchback enters the market as a separate model, and Rapid will continue to exist in a new form.
Skoda in the last few years was transformed beyond recognition. What can we say, if only for the last year the company showed the new Superb, electric Citigo, baby Kamiq, hatchback, Scala and, of course, the popular Octavia liftback. In addition, the latest rumors from then division of Skoda indicate that soon we will see a new Rapid. It is reported by Auto Informant with reference to the Motor1.
The reason for this decision in relation to Scala is that it is a more upscale product and therefore more expensive, while Rapid uses the same recipe as Dacia Logan, offering a lightweight, budget ride.
What we see in the last teaser, in fact, is a miniature copy of the new Octavia. As in almost all the sketches, the wheels are unusually large, and the doors are missing the handles to make the profile smoother, but in reality everything is not so perfect.
Skoda doesn’t want to go into details about the new Rapid, though, and mentions that retain their practical five-door liftback. It will be interesting to see whether also continue the line shorter Rapid Spaceback. At the moment, the interior remains a mystery, but knowing Skoda, it will be easy to use thanks to the simple design of the dashboard without high-quality features of more expensive Octavia.
An interesting model emerges?
