Skoda Rapid sedan and hatchback shown on live photosJanuary 13, 2020
The Czech brand plans to organize a debut of car innovations in the first quarter of this year.
Skoda is going to bring to the market a restyled version of the Skoda Rapid sedan and hatchback. While the brand is preparing a public premiere of new products, their first “live” photos appeared in the Chinese media. So, unlike the new Skoda Rapid liftbac, the Rapid sedan for China receives upgraded optics, new bumpers and a redesigned grille. But the updated Rapid hatchback almost completely copies the Skoda Scala model, which was offered to the Europeans.
Both cars boast perfectly tuned proportions, as well as a modern design with spectacular accents.
The Skoda Rapid sedan and hatchback are powered by the previous MPI 1.5 liter engine with a return of 110 horsepower, combined with 5MKPP or 6AKPP.
Recall that under the hood of the Rapid lies either a 1.6-liter “aspirated” with a power of 90 or 100 hp, working in tandem with a manual transmission or automatic transmission, or a 1.4-liter 125-horsepower TSI, for which DSG7 provided.
Photo spies have not been able to look into the salon of restyled cars yet. We can judge the interior decoration of new products by the previously published sketches. Thanks to them, it was possible to find out that the interior of the car after restyling will change minimally. The manufacturer updated only the center console and provided multimedia with a “grown-up” touchscreen.
