Skoda premiered the Rapid in India last month and takes it other developing markets next year with a restyled front-end and hatchback (think Octavia) body style aligned with the MissionL concept shown at Frankfurt Motor Show.

Skoda could use more powerful engines and dual clutch transmissions on foreign markets where customers demand higher driving performance.
