Skoda recently introduced a restyled Rapid in Russia
sedan, while the Rapid Spaceback has now been prepared and restored for the Chinese market.
As expected, the visual changes to the front here were modeled on
Damage to Scala, which includes a new grille, lights and bumper. It is also refined
the rear, with a ŠKODA inscription on the boot door.
Modifications also suffered from the interior, in the form of a modified instrument
boards, infotainment systems, as well as higher quality materials and richer equipment.
The car is 4312 mm long and has a wheelbase of 2603 mm.
Under the hood is still a 1.5 liter petrol engine with 112hp and 145Nm, paired
with manual or automatic transmission.
The Chinese will also be offered a refurbished Rapid sedan facelift (with the same 1.5
liter engine) and both versions will be manufactured by Shanghai-Volkswagen in China.
