The exterior has been perfectly proportioned with clean surfaces and sharp lines to create a stylish and attractive appearance. The front of the rounded bonnet proudly displays the new ŠKODA logo. The grille below is a fine chrome frame and the new style of headlights forms a cloverleaf shape. With a long wheelbase, coupe-like silhouette and distinctively shaped tailgate the ŠKODA Rapid is unmistakable on the road.
The cabin is smart and classy with a choice of contrasting colours for the dashboard and doors. The practical dimensions and clever space saving devices allow space for 5 passengers plus luggage to travel with ease and comfort.

The large boot is accessed through a high opening wide tailgate.
