Skoda Unveils the 2014 Rapid Spaceback
|   Sunday, October 06, 2013
Skoda has just unveiled the most spacious version of its Rapid – the Rapid Space back. This vehicle is more spacious as compared to the base version of the car, although this is a unique version of a hatchback so far. This vehicle rivals the likes of Volkswagen's Golf, Kia's Cee'd and Hyundai's i30. Interior space, comfort and performance are major criteria and Skoda appeals to these segments quite relentlessly.

This is a compact segment vehicle; hence there are a lot of competitors in its segment.
Price sensitivity is a major concern as well as fuel economy and environment friendliness. Boot space is 415 liters hence there should not be any major issues with luggage storage. Skoda wants to compete with Volkswagen's Golf. Hence, competition is a major factor deciding sales and criteria.

Despite its generous interior capacity, this vehicle is shorter than the last generation Rapid. This however does not count segments as the latest Rapid is in slew with its predecessors. When Skoda unveils this vehicle is January 2014. Two petrol and one diesel engine options are available. Identical wheel bases are available hence interior space should not be a concern. A 1.2 liter engine has been added to its lineup. Hence, power displacement should not be a major concern.

This engine displaces 104 BHP along with 175 ft lb of torque. Skoda claims a fuel efficiency of 52 MPG along with 118 gm/km of CO2. Green Tech is a new
technology which is expected to encourage fuel efficiency and CO2 emission. Hence, we can expect large amounts of power and handling efficiency from this engine. On road, this vehicle is a class leader with excess amounts of torque.

We therefore believe that performance aspects should be kept in mind before deciding about the future of a vehicle. All engine options are mated to a six speed manual transmission system although it does not compromise on safety and performance. This vehicle is meant for tricky terrain although off road experiences are not particularly intended. This is one of the smoothest vehicles to glide over asphalt.

The chassis is sufficiently wide and supports the entire frame of this vehicle. This vehicle even has a sporty yet spacious interior. Hence, bland trim is not the primary concern. If money is your primary consultant, Skoda Rapid should be your choice. This vehicle is not cheap, even though it is on the lesser side of things. In class, it is one of the best cars, hence not many people can complain about its performance aspect.

At this price point, Skoda is doing the best it can to provide people with a car which they need. We are waiting for a chance to get our hands behind the wheels of a 2014 Rapid although this is still a distant dream considering the fact that there is still some time left for launch. We will keep you updated on the details as and when Skoda reveals news about the 2014 Rapid. Hence, stay tuned for more updates.
