New Skoda Rapid set to launch in 2022

Czech car makers, Skoda, are all set to make a mark again by launching the all-new Skoda Rapid in early 2022. Sources claim the car is anticipated to be rechristened, but the new name hasn’t been brought to light yet. A camouflaged mule of the new Skoda Rapid was seen being tested in India and it’s reckoned that it might prove itself to be a worthy competitor for the new Honda City and Hyundai Verna.

What is the new Skoda Rapid?

The new Skoda Rapid is a completely new sedan, bringing in major updates over the current Rapid. The car will be approx. 67 mm longer, and 50mm wider than the current-generation Rapid. Along with a dramatic increase in dimensions, the feature-rich car is likely to have 520-liter boot space, and the longest wheelbase (approx. 2651mm) in its segment, making it spaciously cozier than the current-generation Rapid. Just like Volkswagen Taigun, and the upcoming Volkswagen Virtus, the new Skoda Rapid will be underpinned by the MQB A0 IN platform, and 95% of the production will be localized.
