Safe, roomy and reliable, the ŠKODA Rapid ticks all the boxes for families. It claims a number of industry awards, including a five-star rating from Euro NCAP.
Hatchback style keeps the Rapid's looks sporty and its proportions compact. It has the recognisable ŠKODA face, complete with chrome edging for the black front grille. The curvy body shape contrasts with the square headlights and daytime running lights. To enhance the overall smooth look, the door handles and mirror caps are finished in your chosen paint colour.
The comfortable feel of the upholstery is matched by the durability, standing up to regular use by up to five occupants. Cup holders and door pockets add to the convenient storage – and to the 550-litre space in the boot. That expands to 1,490 litres with the 60/40 split rear seats folded down. The Rapid leads in its segment for interior capacity, giving every passenger plenty of shoulder and leg room.
Depending on the engine, the Rapid can cover 0-60mph in just nine seconds – living up to its name.
ŠKODA gives you the choice between 1.2-litre, 1.4-litre and 1.6-litre petrol and diesel engines.
With diesel power the car generates as much as 78.5mpg in combined fuel economy.
Passive and active safety measures are comprehensive at every trim level. Choose any version of the Rapid, and full surrounding airbags, the SAFE system and ISOFIX child seat attachments will all be fitted. Driver aids include Electronic Stabilisation Control, bundled with a variety of supportive braking and stability assistances.
ŠKODA has also brought handy, intuitive SmartLink technology to the car. Quickly connect a compatible smartphone to the system to use apps for music, navigation and driving data. The 6.5-inch colour display in the front additionally shows controls for the SWING radio, which has USB and SD card compatibility for your own music devices.
