The new ŠKODA Rapid Spaceback packs all the style and practicality of the Rapid into a sportier, more compact package.
Carrying ŠKODA's new design, the Rapid Spaceback's striking good looks are sure to turn heads. Its longer rear window maximises the car's length, while letting more light in at the same time. The Rapid Spaceback echoes the standard Rapid at the front, with the same wide grille and clean lines. The dynamic shape continues towards the back of the car, creating a unified look throughout. This model trims 18cm off the Rapid, and its stretched shape creates the impression of a much larger car.
The spacious feeling continues throughout the interior, too – 98cm of headroom and 6.4cm of legroom in the rear ensure you and your passengers will travel in comfort. The boot has an impressive 415 litres of space, extending to 1,380 litres with the rear seats down, so the Rapid Spaceback doesn't compromise on practicality. This space is maximised by Simply Clever features that help you get the most out of the car. A stow-away parcel shelf and double-sided floor cover make the boot a versatile luggage space, while an ice scraper tucked away in the fuel filler flap and a waste bin in the side door are innovative features which take the clutter out of every journey.
Under the bonnet, the Rapid Spaceback certainly won't disappoint. With a total of five engines available, you'll be sure to find the best car for you. The top-end 1.4-litre TSI produces 120.3bhp and will go from 0-60mph in less than 9.4 seconds. For extra economy, the 1.6-litre TDI CR GreenTech does an average of 70.6mpg, and emits just 104g/km of CO2.
The Rapid Spaceback also carries ŠKODA's trademark high-quality safety features, giving you peace of mind on the road. With front, side and head airbags, three-point safety belts and ABS as standard, you'll be well protected in adverse situations. Additional safety features like front fog-lights with cornering functionality are standard on the Elegance variant, while Hill-hold control is standard on the Elegance and SE variants. With numerous safety options across the entire Rapid Spaceback range, you can customise your vehicle according to your needs.
