The BS6 Skoda Rapid TSI has been launched, with prices starting at INR 7.49 lakh*. This is the first BS6 Skoda car to have been launched.
The Skoda Rapid’s 1.6-litre MPI N/A petrol and 1.5-litre TDI turbocharged diesel engines, both BS4 compliant, have been replaced with a BS6 compliant 1.0-litre TSI turbocharged petrol engine. While the old engines were four-cylinder units, the new engine is a three-cylinder unit.
The BS6 1.0-litre TSI turbocharged petrol engine of the Skoda Rapid produces 81 kW (110 PS) of maximum power at 5,000-5,250 rpm and 175 Nm of maximum torque at 1,750-4,000 rpm. A 6-speed manual transmission channels drive to the wheels. The fuel economy rating of the 2020 Skoda Rapid is 18.97 km/l. A 6-speed automatic transmission option will be introduced later this year.
Along with a more eco-friendly engine, the Skoda Rapid has received a new infotainment system and Tellular Grey dual-tone leatherette upholstery as part of its MY2020 update. The new infotainment system is an 8-inch touchscreen unit with built-in navigation.
