  • Skoda Rapid (12-18)

The Skoda Rapid name has been around a long time and was first attached to a car back in 1935.

Some 76 years after the first model was launched the third generation version arrived in 2011.

This Skoda Rapid came in saloon form and was joined a year later by an estate version called the Skoda Rapid Spaceback.

The Skoda Rapid saloon is out to take on its more conventional mainstream rivals such as the VW Golf, Ford Focus and Hyundai i30. While it looks like a saloon its boot opens like a conventional hatchback allowing easy access to the large luggage space. In fact, the Rapid saloon has a significantly bigger boot space than its rivals.
