With lots of space, numerous ‘Simply Clever’ features, intelligent safety systems and low fuel consumption figures the new ŠKODA Rapid Spaceback is sure to impress. It's available in three generously-appointed trim levels: S, SE and Elegance, with prices starting from just £14,340 OTR.
The exterior of the new Rapid Spaceback exudes a dynamic elegance and features a new longer rear window design, which gives the car a sportier, stretched look, despite being 18cm shorter than the Rapid model. The Rapid Spaceback’s dynamic silhouette is marked by clear lines, a long wheelbase (2,602 mm) and a sharp, high tornado line. The front of the Rapid Spaceback model is based on the Rapid model. The core elements being the prominent grille, the new logo on the rounded front end of the bonnet and the cloverleaf arrangement of the headlights. The tail end of the car features clear lines and creates a balanced and uncluttered impression. A black diffuser element equally underlines the horizontal orientation as well as the broad tail lights in the brand-typical ‘C’ shape design.
As is typical of all ŠKODA models, the interior of the new Rapid Spaceback offers a lot of space. Despite the exterior of the new model measuring 18cm less than the Rapid, passenger space is just as generous as in the car’s ‘big brother’. The rear of the Rapid Spaceback boasts impressive amounts of legroom (64mm) and headroom (980mm) and the boot space is equally impressive, with a maximum capacity of 415 litres with the rear seats up and 1,380 litres with the rear seats down.
