Official: Skoda Rapid Spaceback revealed; World Premiere at Frankfurt Motor Show

Posted on: Jul 15, 2013 - 2:22pm IST

After teasing us for more than a week and after countless spy photos, here it is: The Skoda Rapid Spaceback.


The Rapid Spaceback is the estate version of the Rapid sedan which would slot in between the Fabia Combi and the Octavia Combi.┬áThe Spaceback sports a glass panoramic sunroof and a ‘prolonged’ rear window which further differentiates it from the Rapid sedan.

Skoda says this is the first time that they have introduced an estate model in the ‘high-volume compact segment’. After reading the press release Skoda sent us, it seems that the┬áSpaceback would target the younger audience.

The wheelbase of the Spaceback stands at 2,602 mm even though the Spaceback measures 18cm lesser than the sedan.

The insides are largely reminiscent to the Rapid sedan. The three-spoke steering wheel and the conventional dashboard layout ensure that you do not mistake this for anything else but a Skoda.
