Anjan Ravi, I'm a true-blooded petrolhead. Hope you enjoy our news stories, launch coverages, motorshow coverages and test drive reports.

We got to know about an updated 2014 model year Skoda Rapid from the company’s website recently. While the website revealed the updated features and the prices, Indian Autos Blog reader Harish Singh, sent us these images of the updated Rapid, and thus we can see what it actually looks like.

The top-end Elegance trim gets projector headlights.

Firstly, Skoda has cut down the number of variants. The updated Rapid petrol lineup will be available as Ambition Plus MT, Elegance MT, Ambition Plus AT and Elegance AT, while the diesel lineup will only see the top-end Elegance model. The special edition ‘Leisure’, which was introduced a few months ago, does not receive the 2014 MY updates.

Seen in these images is the top-end Elegance diesel model. The sole new exterior feature comes in the form of projector headlights, while other details have remain untouched. Inside, the 2014 Rapid gets a new three-spoke steering wheel with integrated controls for the music system and Bluetooth. We also notice that the gear lever is all new and it gets a leather wrap for its knob.

A new three-spoke steering wheel with integrated controls for the music system and Bluetooth telephony is standard across the range.

Skoda has also updated the base Ambition Plus model. This variant receives all the features of the Elegance model apart from the projector headlights, automatic AC, alloy wheels and the adjustment of the front passenger seat from the rear.

Skoda has made no changes to the mechanicals of the Rapid and the 1.6-liter petrol and diesel engines continue unchanged.
