Skoda Rapid with xenon-headlights

The Skoda Rapid is a model that is not supposed to be bought with the heart, but with the head as the wallet can suffer a lot otherwise. Its proportions have to be pleasant for the eye and so are the lines. The interior of the model also helps the potential customers to make up their mind. The specialists have decided to update the car for the new 2014 model year and its main highlight is the Xenon headlamps. So that you know, there is also a 1.6-liter TDI engine capable of producing 90 PS. This can be paired to either a 7-speed dual clutch transmission or to a 5-speed manual one. There is also an ultra-efficient Green tec trim which enables the car to use 3.9 liters of fuel per 100 km.


This is only with the addition of low rolling resistance tires, a regenerative braking and a stop-start system. You can also select the 1.4-liter TSI capable of generating 122 PS. This version can also come in Green tec trim and this only means it can be personalized in different ways, depending on the tastes of the customers. Of course, we are not talking about a common customization that a Fiat 500 or a Renault Captur would have. No, this is a special treatment that offers a more powerful experience, all thanks to the new options which do not include plastic covers and panels.


Anyway, you should know the model benefits from multiple interior improvements like for example, a new sportier-looking three-prong steering wheel, different trim materials and also new seat covers to complete the process. These are actually all the improvements brought to the car. In case you are interested in owning one, please be advised that sales will begin on the 5th of August in Europe.
