Skoda India recently launched the new Rapid and the Chech car manufacturer is planning to introduce a new petrol unit in its sedan. Skoda currently offers a 1.6-litre naturally aspirate petrol unit in the new Rapid sedan and the step is being taken after observing the customer’s continued interest towards petrol-powered cars.

This engine is VW's 1.2-litre TSI turbo-petrol unit that also powers the Rapid's sibling,  the Volkswagen Vento. According to the reports, the Rapid will continue to be offered with a 1.6-litre MPI naturally aspirated engine in the manual variants, while the automatic variants will come paired with the 1.2-litre turbocharged TSI engine. The 1.2-litre powertrain will come connected to a 7-speed DSG gearbox, which is currently offered only with the diesel version of the Rapid sedan.
