Frankfurt Live – Skoda Rapid Spaceback has a lot of space and a sporty back


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

The Skoda Rapid Spaceback gets its world premiere at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show. Targeting the ‘high-volume compact segment’, the Rapid Spaceback will be positioned in between the Fabia estate and the Octavia estate. The market launch will be conducted in October this year for Europe.

The Spaceback, though shorter than the Rapid sedan in length, gets a 415-liter boot which grows to 1,380-liters when the rear seats are folded down. On higher variants, Skoda will offer a huge panoramic sunroof and the space on the bootlid above the number plate enclosure will come in a black color.

Front, side and head airbags, ABS, ESC, Xenon headlights, hill hold system and tire pressure monitoring are some of the features you can look forward to. Available with 4 petrol and 2 diesel engines, the Spaceback outputs power from 73bhp to 120bhp. The most fuel efficient engine consumes only 26.31km/l while the ‘greenest’ engine emits a mere 99g of CO2 per km.
