On the 16 of the this month we will have a new C segment sedan batting the likes of the Honda City, Nissan Sunny, Fiat Linea et all. No prizes for guessing, it is indeed the Skoda Rapid. It is a brainchild of Skoda’s Indian subsidiary and the company is banking on the Rapid to get them the volumes the Fabia or now-defunct Citigo project didn't.
Skoda India has created the microsite of the Rapid available to masses so that they can have a small glimpse of what’s in store.
The Rapid is based on the Vento’s platform and will be offered in the same engine options as the Vento. It will be offered in 3 variants - Active, Ambition and Elegance. Although, the pricing details are not yet known, we expect Skoda India to launch the rapid at 6.5 lakhs going all the way to 9 odd lakhs for the automatic version.
