Bigger does not always mean better, but in the case of the ŠKODA Rapid Spaceback the words certainly ring true. An extended roofline and an upright boot make this an exciting upgrade to the original Rapid.
As the Spaceback drives past, a high tornado line and the precise grooves across the side will certainly catch your eye. Rear lights, shaped in the distinctive ŠKODA ‘C’, can be darkened with a black finish thanks to the SE Sport trim. The same trim also affords you a panoramic glass roof and an extended tailgate glass. You can turn the style-notches up even further with sunset glass; optional on the SE Tech trim.
Inside, the carefully curated ŠKODA design is evident in all its glory. An ergonomic dashboard matches the clean lines on the body and the instrument panel flows with the curve of the wheel. The Spaceback lives up to its name with a class-leading boot capacity of 415 litres. Pop the seats down and you’ve got an extra 1,381 litres to work with. Discreet storage solutions, standard on the SE Tech, let you hold drinks, phones and glasses close by. Choose the SE Tech or the SE Sport trim and enjoy a discreet storage space inside the leather armrest.
Technology also features inside. An Amundsen satellite navigation system is standard on the SE Tech and SE sport and manual air-conditioning is equipped on all models. Never be out of the know with a trip computer instrument panel that will recommend your next gear change.
The entry-level 1.2-litre TSI 88bhp engine, available with the S and the SE trim, is smaller but by no means a weaker option. Refined, responsive and flexible, it is cheaper than diesel and is particularly frugal when it comes to fuel economy. At 50mpg combined, it will help save you money and thanks to Skoda’s excellent experience in producing petrol engines, it is durable too.
The 1.6-litre TDI GreenLine engine is also available, which combines a fuel economy of 74mpg and CO2 emissions of 99g/km to achieve an environmentally-friendly drive.
The Rapid Spaceback pulls its weight with a variety of safety features. Large-volume airbags for the driver and passengers work in accordance with seatbelt pretensioners to immediately secure the cabin. Telescopic front headlight washers, optional on the SE Tech, will ensure you visibility is as good as possible.
