Skoda revises Rapid

Skoda has updated its Rapid small car, writes Brian Byrne. It is available in hatchback, and Spaceback (below) formats.

The car has an improved range of engines, including the introduction of a 1.0 3-cylinder turbocharged petrol unit.

Changes include new lighting, and driver assistance systems as well as a new Skoda Connect connectivity system.

The Rapid name goes back to the Czech manufacturer’s products in the 1930s, but the current car was introduced in 2012.
