The new Skoda Rapid Spaceback made its global debut at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show, as part of the strategy of Czech carmaker Skoda to introduce eight new or face-lifted models before the end of 2013. The new Skoda Rapid Spaceback is merging the carmaker's established attributes with distinct styling as well as exceptional functionality, bringing fresh and dynamic design to the typically conservative area of the compact hatchback market.
The Skoda Rapid Spaceback's bold design language and character reinforces the Czech carmaker's reputation as a forward-thinking brand.
The Skoda Rapid Spaceback features a number of personalization options that enable customers to have their units built according to their preferences. For instance, a customer could opt to install a large panoramic glass roof and add extended tailgate glazing on his own Rapid Spaceback.
Aside from that, the Rapid Spaceback offers a roomy rear, with passengers getting what is considered as the best-in-the-class knee- and headroom. It also features a boot of 415 liters -- extendable to 1,380 liters -- making the Rapid Spaceback a practical hatchback in its own right.
The Rapid Spaceback builds on the strengths of the standard Rapid while featuring new steering wheels, new upholstery fabrics and new trim.
The Rapid Spaceback also boasts of 'Simply Clever' features like a dual-level boot floor, ice-scraper inside the fuel cap, and a number of holders, nets and hooks in the interior. The Rapid Spaceback is powered by any of four petrol and two diesel engines, including a GreenLine version that boasts of emitting just 99 g/km of carbon dioxide.
