The ŠKODA Rapid is the all-new family car that sits between the Fabia and Octavia. It has a hatchback body style with class-leading interior space and is outstanding value for money, with prices starting from just £13,185 OTR. The Rapid offers a generous interior space for up to five occupants and is best-in-class for passenger head and knee room. The boot has a suitcase swallowing 550 litres of storage space - another class-leading figure. Folding the rear seats down increases the volume further to an impressive 1,490 litres. At every stage of its production, the Rapid's designers have kept the driver and passengers in mind. The result of this thoughtfulness is 'Simply Clever' features throughout the car.

The Rapid has been designed with both the driver and passengers in mind. The interior is split between the 'Driving Room' and the 'Living Room'. The 'Living Room' is characterised by the revolutionary 'Varioflex' seating system, whilst soft touch surfaces and ergonomically laid out controls in the 'Driving Room' make the Rapid a joy to drive. Passengers in the rear 'Living Room' section of the Rapid can take advantage of the higher positioning of the rear seats and deeper rear windows to experience all round views of the surrounding environment.
Cruise control is available on the Rapid which will allow you to stay at a steady speed along the motor way or on long journeys. Hill hold control is also available which will allow you to start on a hill with out running the risk of rolling backwards. Parking sensors are placed on the rear bumper to make parking and reversing a lot easier. Add the option of 'Amundsen' satellite navigation available as an option on SE and Elegance and make the most of your driving comforts.
