Regulars to Motoroids would remember that we were among the very firsts to report that VW Group owned Czech automaker has been busy working on a new Skoda Rapid variant of late.
This variant would be known as the ‘Spaceback’ and would be unveiled at Frankfurt Motor Show next month. Seen here in the video below is an uncamouflaged Skoda Rapid test mule that reveals a fair bit about the upcoming car’s style.
As can be made out from the video, the upcoming Skoda Rapid Spaceback is essentially an estate variant of the Rapid sedan. There is a good chance that this estate is being readied to plug in the gap between the Fabia estate and the Octavia estate. It may be noted that unlike in Indian car market, where demand for estate variants is as good as non-existent, European market has always welcomed these cars.
Powering the Rapid Spaceback could be the same engines that power the sedan. This means that among other engines, the car would get a 1.2 TSI petrol motor that also powers the India spec Polo GT TSI.
Stay tuned to Motoroids for more deails of the soon-to-be-unveiled Skoda Rapid Spaceback. Also, tell us if you would like to have the Skoda Rapid Spaceback in Indian car market.
