Skoda has released details of its all-new car the Rapid, which will have its debut this September at the Paris motor show, before going on sale across Europe. The Rapid will be positioned in the C-segment and sit between the Fabia and Octavia within the Skoda model line-up. Commenting on the new Rapid Skoda CEO Winfried Vahland said: “The ŠKODA Rapid is a roomy, elegant and an affordable car for the whole family, impressing with clever solutions, cutting-edge technology and excellent economy. In short, it is a comfortable, reasonably priced and environmentally friendly package. The right car at the right time.” We will have to wait till the year end before we will see the Rapid on Irish roads where it will compete with the likes of the Volkswagen Golf, Ford Focus and Opel Astra. Prices for the Skoda Rapid will be announced later this year.
