The ŠKODA Rapid remains very loyal to ŠKODA’s core values, offering outstanding space, fantastic value for money and a car which has been designed at every stage with the driver and passengers in mind.
With space for up to five occupants and class leading passenger head and knee room, the ŠKODA Rapid offers incredible comfort for you and the whole family on even the longest of road trips.
Designed with a suitcase swallowing 550 litres of boot space with the back seats up and when the back seats are folded down that number more than doubles to a cavernous 1,490 litres. With the ŠKODA Rapid nothing’s going to get left behind.
It also comes with a proven array of safety features and whilst you may never need them, you can rest assured that if you’re ever in a difficult driving situation, you can rely on the ŠKODA Rapid. ABS braking and Electronic Stability Control, front, side and curtain airbags are all standard across the whole range.
ŠKODA Rapid price starting from just £15,345 and available to buy from Underwoods - ŠKODA Main Dealer in Colchester, Essex.
Front, side and curtain airbags
If there’s ever a collision, large-volume airbags activate in conjunction with front seatbelt pretensioners – keeping you safely in the middle of your seat and within the cushion.
For those ice-cold mornings
