In Skoda’s range the 2017 Skoda Rapid Spaceback occupies a position between the Fabia and Octavia. Its prices currently start at £14,410, and it’s £3115 more compared with the predecessor and also £2785 less than the latter.
The 2017 Skoda Rapid Spaceback has been granted a subtle styling refresh, represented by crisper-looking headlights, black tail-light tints and foglights. Inside, it’s quite subtle, coming with two USB ports for the rear passengers.
There’re three trims available, these are SE Tech, SE Sport and S. The 109bhp turbocharged petrol 1.0 TSI happens to be a fresh unit, worth £16,345, substituting the old 1.2 TSI. The powertrain delivers its power via a six-speed manual gearbox.
In general, the new vehicle resembles the Fabia, although it’s bigger.
The boomy powertrain generates a little aural drama amid fuss-free cabin ambience. However, some drivers might get tired of this. As for the steering, it’s quite numb, with minor body roll.
