Skoda reveals Rapid Spaceback

Published 10 September 2013

Skoda has revealed the Rapid Spaceback at the Frankfurt Motor Show. Essentially an estate version of the Rapid, the Spaceback is expected to cost around £12,000 and will be available in the UK from December 2013.

Skoda is pitching the Spaceback at younger buyers and so is offering a selection of stylish extras, including a panoramic roof which blends into extended tailgate glass, giving the car a distinctive edge.

Another neat feature is a double cargo floor, which can split the boot into two horizontal levels – a bit like shelves.

Engines are much the same as the regular Rapid – there are four petrol engines - from a 75PS 1.2-litre to a 122PS 1.4-litre - plus a 105PS 1.6-litre diesel and a new 99g/km Greenline diesel with 90PS, which was previously unavailable in the Rapid range and will offer the best economy and lowest emissions.
