Driven By Something Different​

The ŠKODA Rapid remains very loyal to ŠKODA’s core values, offering outstanding space, fantastic value for money and a car which has been designed at every stage with the driver and passengers in mind.

With space for up to five occupants and class leading passenger head and knee room, the ŠKODA Rapid offers incredible comfort for you and the whole family on even the longest of road trips.

Designed with a suitcase swallowing 550 litres of boot space with the back seats up and when the back seats are folded down that number more than doubles to a cavernous 1,490 litres. With the ŠKODA Rapid nothing’s going to get left behind.

It also comes with a proven array of safety features and whilst you may never need them, you can rest assured that if you’re ever in a difficult driving situation, you can rely on the ŠKODA Rapid. ABS braking and Electronic Stability Control, front, side and curtain airbags are all standard across the whole range.

Meet the ŠKODA Rapid

Interior - Skoda Rapid
New design language - Skoda Rapid
Side profile - Skoda Rapid
View from behind - Skoda Rapid

With an interior space large enough for five occupants and a generous amount of head and leg room you’ll travel in absolute comfort wherever you sit in the ŠKODA Rapid.​​​​

The ŠKODA Rapid was the first car to truly embody the new ŠKODA design language. The stunning lines of the car allow light and darkness to interplay, creating a dynamism and timeless elegance.​​​​

The ŠKODA ​Rapid’s side profile is not typical of a roomy hatchback, but is more like a sleek coupe. Our design visually lengthens the car, whilst the strong shoulder line of the Rapid is defined and precise, giving the car a powerful dynamism and the appearance of being in motion, even when stationary.​​​​

The ŠKODA ​Rapid model features crystalline lines, surfaces and angles which are inspired by traditional Bohemian crystal production – proudly remembering ŠKODA’s strong heritage. ​​​

Every model in the ŠKODA range has received a 5 star Euro NCAP safety rating. The Rapid features 3 point rear seat belts and curtain airbags as standard, as well as further driver and passenger airbags. The braking assistant helps drivers by increasing the braking pressure in emergency situations, which leads to a significant reduction in required braking distance. ŠKODA - experience 5 star safety, whatever model you choose.
