The SKODA Rapid was a name originally introduced back in 1935. Various cars have worn the classic SKODA name in it’s 80 year history, including the latest reincarnation. Like the original, the new SKODA Rapid offers a refined, yet extremely affordable and reliable experience. It offers outstanding interior space, easily accommodating 5 people, as well as an array of luggage to accompany them. With a large 550 litres of boot space (compared to the 330 litres of luggage room in a Fabia), or a massive 1,490 litres with the rear seats folded down, the Rapid is an incredibly practical car.

Being a family car at heart, the Rapid is packed full of safety features – hopefully you’ll never need any of them, but you can rest assured knowing they’re their protecting your most important cargo. Driver, passenger, side and curtain airbags are all  fitted as standard across the range, whether you go for the S, or the Sport – they’re there for you.

The trim levels for the Rapid offer varying levels of comfort and equipment as standard. The Rapid S includes the likes of Daytime Running Lights, Remote Central Locking, Tyre Pressure Monitor and ISOFIX seating for younger passengers. Climbing the range through to the SE and you’ll gain cruise control, Bluetooth Connectivity, Air Conditioning and Rear Electric Windows. The SE L trim offers even more, while the Rapid Sport offers everything of the SE plus additional sports extras such as 17″ Blade black alloy wheels, sports seats and a rear spoiler.

The SKODA Rapid SE, Sport and SE L all are available with Front assistant which is an optional extra. The Front Assistant System helps avoid or to lessen accidents into the rear of traffic ahead. Vehicles up to 80m in front that the car is likely to hit can be detected via long range radar. The system uses increasing measures from optical and acoustic warnings through issuing a small braking jolt to encourage a driver reaction, up to applying full braking force to avoid or lessen a collision.

Available with  a choice of 8 different alloy wheels and a selection of 12 different colours, including metallic and pearlescent paint, your new SKODA Rapid can be tailored exactly as you wish. You can also choose from a range of engines and transmissions, including the 1.6 TDI CR 115ps which emits only 99 g/km CO2.

From only £16,970, the new SKODA Rapid is a fun, practical and safe family car. Backed by a SKODA three year warranty and breakdown cover, it, likes its original predecessor offers great value for money.
