New Skoda Rapid to be Launched With a New Engine and Interiors

Snapshot: Skoda said that modified version will be available in the month of August

Modification are now becoming a norm in the car manufacturing industry. Whenever a model matures and loses its popularity the car manufacturers announce that they are going to face lift the model and modify the interior and exterior to attract fresh buyers. Skoda has announced that they are going to modify their sedan car model Rapid to make it more attractive to the customers. The modifications they are going to introduce are likely to make the model very fast and stylish.

Skoda said that modified version will be available in the month of August. The vehicle will come with extensive changes in the interior of the car. The model will have a modified steering wheel with three spokes and new trims. The interior will also have upholstered seats.

An entirely new ‘1.5 Litre TDI’ diesel engine will also be available to the prospective buyers. The vehicle will have a 7 Gear Dual Clutch Automatic Transmission as well as manual 5 gear tansmission system. Another new option is to have a ‘Green tec package’ which is environmentally friendly and includes technology which helps in economic usage of fuel, a new system which has a start and stop mechanism, a new brake system which comes with an energy recovery option. The carbon di oxide emissions are also very reasonable for the entry level diesel car. ‘Rapid 1.6 TDI’ emits only 104 g / Km while normal emissions are much higher, The head lights have also undergone modification in the new Skoda Rapid and will now have xenon headlights. This means the lights system do not need cleaning. However, it is not clear whether this option will be available in India or not.

It is hoped that with these new modifications and improvements the model will increase its popularity in the car market and improve sales growth.
