ŠKODA’s new Rapid Spaceback is a robust and reliable hatch with distinct styling. Intelligent safety systems and low fuel consumption make this a wise choice for the modern-day motorist. There are plenty of personalisation options enabling you to make this model your own.
The new longer rear window design of the Rapid Spaceback bolsters the model’s sporty appeal. It now has an elegant, elongated appearance, even though it’s 18cm shorter than the standard Rapid model. At the front it’s based on the original Rapid model – but you can expect a prominent grille, a new logo on the rounded front end, and a cloverleaf headlight arrangement. The tail end boasts smooth lines to give a lasting impression.
There’s plenty of space on board for driver and passengers alike. In fact, it’s just as roomy as the standard Rapid model. Legroom measures 64mm in the rear, with headroom at 980mm. Boot space is just as impressive – there’s 415 litres of capacity with the rear seats up and 1,380 when they’re folded down. The optional panoramic roof will make the cabin feel even more light and airy – especially if you open it up.
The Rapid Spaceback is fitted with your choice from a range of three petrol and two diesel engines. The hi-tech TSI petrol engines combine power and torque with surprisingly low CO2 emissions and impressive fuel economy. As for the 1.6-litre TDI CR 89bhp GreenTech diesel engine, it emits just 104g/km of CO2. It’s the best choice for the frugal driver.
A variety of intelligent safety features are built into the Rapid Spaceback for your peace of mind. There’s electronic stability control (ESC) to keep you from over or understeering. It keeps you on track, whatever the terrain. Driver and passenger front, side and curtain airbags provide cushioning should an accident occur. Meanwhile, SmartLink technology keeps you connected on the move. It mirrors your phone’s display on an integrated screen in your dashboard. Using this, you can make calls, play music and check direction – so you won’t be distracted by your phone.
