Skoda Rapid new interior upgrade

According to Skoda, the carmaker will offer a series of updates to the 2014 Rapid, but we will have to wait to see all of them. The model is scheduled to go on sale starting with the 5th of August and according to the specialists, the model can be equipped with optional xenon headlights which kick out 2.000 lumen.

The model will receive power from a 1.6-liter TDI 66 kW diesel engine. The interior will receive different upgrades like new three-spoke steering wheels, new decorative trims and seat covers as well as other enhancements of the design. So that you know, the engine works with direct common rail injection, equipped with diesel particle filters and may either be combined with an automatic 7-gear dual clutch transmission or a manual 5-gear transmission.

The Green tec version is offered for the new entry-level diesel and its package includes fuel consumption reducing technologies like the automatic start-stop mechanism, brake energy recovery and rolling-resistant tires. The new Skoda Rapid will be available with two self-igniters and four gas engines. The Green tec package is available for all TSI and TDI engines. The interior of the car will be enhanced and so it seems that all compact sedans will receive new three-spoke steering wheels. As optional, the model will receive xenon headlights. This system requires no headlamp leveling and headlamp cleaning system. The Skoda Rapid has already won a lot of awards and it will win some other ones in the near future as well.
