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.


The Rapid features a range of clean and efficient petrol engines and a frugal diesel engine, offering the driver a suitable engine for every situation. The Rapid engines offer a great blend of power and torque combined with low CO2 and improved fuel economy.

Safety Features

The Rapid has been built with a proven array of safety features. Whilst you hopefully won’t need them, you can feel comfortable knowing that should you find yourself in an extreme situation, you can rely on the Rapid.

Its long wheelbase, combined with an exceptionally stiff chassis and rigid body structure, form the basis for reassuringly stable handling. ABS anti-lock braking and ESC stability control are standard across the range and functions including a Tyre Pressure Monitor, fog lamps with cornering beam and Hill-hold control for starting on a slope are also available enhancing the safety offering further. Occupants will also be protected in case of a collision by front, side and head airbags, plus height-adjustable three-point safety belts.

Standard and Optional Equipment

The usual ŠKODA trim variants are available on Rapid: S, SE and Elegance. Depending on the trim level, standard features include a new multi-function steering wheel with soft-touch keys, cruise control, Bluetooth, MDI (Multi-Device Interface), air conditioning, trip computer and remote central locking.

A range of comfort and convenience options are also available. One of the most popular is the Storage package (available on S, SE and Elegance), which consists of bag hooks, side storage above the wheel arches and three nets with fastening clips. Other extras include 16-inch or 17-inch alloy wheels, exterior sports mouldings, additional chrome detailing plus a variety of infotainment system upgrades.

Simply Clever Features

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. All the usual ŠKODA innovations are present, including various storage solutions to safely stow multi-media players, cups and parking tickets, as well as netting on the inner sides of the front seats.

A range of new Simply Clever features are also available including: An ice scraper that slides ingeniously into the inside of the fuel tank filler flap, a removable rubbish bin in the door pocket and a double-sided covering for the boot floor.
