Skoda Range Expanding Rapidly

By raccars Published

Skoda's latest attempt is pitched towards more youthful buyers, and will be known as the Rapid Spaceback.

Based upon the upcoming Rapid, which goes on sale this month, the Spaceback boasts the design traits of a Golf-like hatchback.

Obviously, the boot space will fail to measure up to the conventional Rapid's, which comprises of 548 litres, however cabin space should remain identically proportioned.

The Spaceback, speculated to be similar in design to the VisionD concept, will be available with stiffer suspension and a sportier interior design to entice a younger segment.

At this time, prices and trim levels remain unknown. Assumptions have been made elsewhere that the Spaceback will be similarly priced to the original Rapid.

Expect the new Spaceback to enter production late in 2013, and to give its rivals a run for their money.
