(R to L) Sudhir Rao, Chairman & MD with Ashutosh Dixit, Director - Sales, Service and Marketing, Skoda Auto India with new Rapid

 

Czech car maker, Skoda has launched the upgraded version of its most successful car in the Indian market, the new Rapid at Rs 8.34 lakh ((ex showroom Maharashtra). The new Skoda Rapid will be available in 1.6L MPI petrol engine or the New 1.5L TDI diesel engine.

                                                           
The company expects to sell 30-40 per cent more Rapids this year over around 11,000 units it sold last year. "The new Rapid is an integral part of our model offensive strategy here. The model has contributed over 70 percent of the volume," Sudhir Rao, Chairman, Skoda India. Last month the company sold 1,500 units out of which only 300 were the Superb, which is its second best seller. Rao also added that the company has a target to sell 15,000 units this year and 20,000 units next year.

 

Skoda India will add five more sales outlets next year to 70. Further, the company said almost 40 percent of the sales now are of petrol models.

 

The New Rapid has a generous heart and comes with two engine variants: a New 1.5L TDI diesel engine and the 1.6L MPI petrol engine. The 1.5 litre TDI produces 110PS of power and a torque output of 250 Nm.  The 1.6 litre MPI or the Multi-point Injection engine is at the core of the Rapid’s Petrol Variant. With Dual Overhead Camshaft (DOHC) 16 valves, it delivers 105 PS of power and a peak torque output of 153Nm. New Rapid will also feature the seven speed DSG gearbox with Tiptronics mated to the 1.5 TDI diesel engine.

 

The New Rapid is bundled with a whole host of exterior enhancements such as Quartz-cut Halogen Projector Headlights with manual leveling function. These are further enhanced by chrome eye lash effect of the LED day running lights. The revamped classy shoulder line complements the New Skoda C-shaped Smoked Taillights presenting a more aesthetic and robust appearance. The chrome molding on the deck lid and chrome finished door handles further accentuate the premium appearance.

 

Inside the cabin, the New Rapid wears a dual-tone Ebony-Sand interiors, featuring premium perforated leatherette seats, abundant chrome décor, AmberGlow Footwell Illumination and New Leatherette lined door armrests.

 

With six exciting colour options (Brilliant Silver, Candy White, Cappuccino Beige, Carbon Steel, Silk Blue and Flash Red ) accessible in 3 variants: Active, Ambition and Style, the New Rapid will be available across all authorised Skoda showrooms in the country.
