    Skoda Rapid Spaceback, Info, Pictures and Specs...

    For the first time ever, ŠKODA offers a compact car which combines ŠKODA’s good practical qualities with the hatchback shape. With its dynamically fresh design, the ŠKODA Rapid Spaceback is set to address younger customer segments. Rapid Spaceback offers the largest legroom (64 millimeters) and the largest headroom (980 millimeters) in its segment. Likewise, the trunk volumes are among the best figures in the segment, measuring 415 liters or 1,380 liters when the rear bench is folded down.​

    ​“The new ŠKODA Rapid Spaceback is a milestone for ŠKODA: it means that we are entering the strategically important segment of compact hatchback models,” says ŠKODA’s CEO Winfried Vahland. “The Rapid Spaceback is a great addition to this class in that it combines ŠKODA’s good practical characteristics with the popular hatchback shape. Sporting the new ŠKODA design, the Rapid Spaceback has a fresh, dynamic and individual appearance. It is a compact car with a sporty chic, spacious and practical, ideal for young people and families,” says Vahland.

    A sporty-fresh compact car

    The new ŠKODA Rapid Spaceback has a clear, independent appearance with a special chic. It is a car which exudes sporty freshness and dynamic elegance, making it attractive and appealing at first sight. The side view offers special accents. Compared with conventional hatchback models, it looks sportier and stretched, almost like a coupe, letting it stand out visually from the competition.

    The ŠKODA Rapid Spaceback’s dynamic silhouette is marked by clear lines, a long wheelbase (2,602 millimeters) and the sharp, high tornado line. The Rapid Spaceback has a ‘C’ and a ‘D’ column with a third side window.

    Individualization is a focus area in this car, one of the highlights of the new Rapid Spaceback being the huge panoramic glass roof available as an option. This tinted glass roof reaches all the way from the windscreen to the rear window, offering passengers an unobstructed view of the sky. Combined with the panoramic glass roof, the optional prolong rear window constitutes an additional design accent. In this solution, the tinted glass of the rear window reaches about ten centimetres further down the rear door than in the normal rear window. In connection with the panoramic glass roof, the dark tint of the glass surface reaches from the windscreen all across the roof and deep into the rear door. A black spoiler at the upper end of the rear window emphasizes the dynamic impression.

    The tail end of the car emphasizes the sporty character of the ŠKODA Spaceback. It features clear lines and creates a balanced and uncluttered impression. A black diffuser element equally underlines the horizontal orientation as well as the broad tail lights in brand-typical ‘C’ design.

    Up to the B-pillar, the design of the front of the ŠKODA Rapid Spaceback is based on the Rapid sedan. The core elements are: a prominent grille with 19 vertical ribs and a chrome frame, the new logo on the rounded front end of the hood, the cloverleaf arrangement of the headlights and fog lights.

    A spacious, attractive interior

    The interior of the new Rapid Spaceback impresses with sporty three-spoke steering wheels, stylish trim lines and fresh designs for the seat covers. As is typical of ŠKODA, the interior of the new ŠKODA Rapid Spaceback offers a lot of space: though the exterior of the new model measures 18 centimeters less than the Rapid saloon, passenger space is just as generous as in the car’s ‘big brother’. The rear of the Rapid Spaceback offers the largest legroom (64 millimeters) and the largest headroom (980 millimeters) in its segment. Likewise, the trunk volumes are among the best figures in the segment, measuring 415 liters or 1,380 liters when the rear bench is folded down.

    This generous space is complemented by numerous ‘Simply Clever’ solutions. For example, the new Rapid Spaceback has an optional double cargo floor in the trunk, permitting the trunk to be divided into two horizontal levels providing double utility. And there is no need to leave the double floor behind when using maximum trunk space as it can simply be moved into the lower position. Furthermore, the Rapid Spaceback offers all the practical features familiar with from the Rapid including the ice scraper in the fuel filler flap and the holder for the safety vest under the driver seat, the double-sided floor cover in the trunk or the waste bin in the side door. Other examples include the parking ticket holder, the multimedia holder, the cup holders in the front and rear or the parcel shelf that can be stowed behind the rear seats.

    Safety without compromises

    The new ŠKODA Rapid Spaceback offers the high safety that has come to be expected of ŠKODA. An extensive safety package protects passengers in case of an accident. In particular, it includes front, side and head airbags, height-adjustable three-point safety belts with pre-tensioners and height-adjustable head restraints. In EU countries, the ABS and ESC systems are standard. Other active safety features are optional xenon headlights, tire pressure control, fog-lights with corner function or the ‘hill-hold control’ assistant.

    Four petrol and two diesel engines

    In Europe, the new ŠKODA Rapid Spaceback is available with four petrol and two diesel engines. These advanced power plants put out between 55 and 90 kW, the 1.6 TDI/66 kW celebrating its premiere in the Rapid model series. In the GreenLine version with this engine, the Rapid Spaceback consumes a mere 3.8 l per 100 km, CO2 emissions amounting to 99 g/km.

    The largest model offensive in company history

    The ŠKODA Rapid Spaceback is the latest innovation as part of the largest model offensive in ŠKODA’s 118-year history as a company. Over the coming years, the brand is set to overhaul its entire model range and expand it into additional segments. On average, one new or re-engineered ŠKODA model will be introduced onto the market every six months. This model offensive is the core of the ŠKODA Growth Strategy 2018, by which time ŠKODA sales are to rise to at least 1.5 million per year.


    The Rapid range features three petrol engines and one diesel with various power outputs, all compliant to Euro 5 standards. All engines are four-cylinder, except the base 1.2 petrol which is a three-cylinder unit.
