Europe – Skoda teases new Rapid variant; Its the Spaceback!

Posted on: Jul 12, 2013 - 4:22pm IST

Skoda has been teasing us for a while now on a new Skoda Rapid variant. They have shown us the left and right taillamp of the car without revealing much. Added to that, the car sports a black strip across the bootlid and is painted red in color.

As a result, we weren’t sure whether it was a faster, performance oriented version called the Rapid RS (taking inspiration from the concept shown at W√∂rthersee), or it was the estate version which is rumored to be known as the Spaceback.

After teasing us with another image today, we finally get the answer to what we were betting on: This is the Rapid estate.¬†This image was accompanied by a message that read “Big news ahead in just a few days”.

The Skoda Rapid Spaceback is part of the company’s 8 new cars for 2013. The estate version of the Rapid would fit nicely between the Fabia Combi and the Octavia Combi.

The Rapid Spaceback has been spied plenty of times on the Czech roads and images of the car were also leaked by a Czech website recently through screen grabs from the online configurator.
