2014 Skoda Rapid gets updated, new engine introduced image

Skoda has recently announced some updates for the 2014 Rapid, including a new engine which will be fitted onto the model.

The Skoda Rapid may have been introduced not too long ago in Europe but that doesn’t mean that the Czech based automaker can’t upgrade it just yet. In fact, the model fitted into the Fabia and the Octavia vehicles is now getting some optional xenon headlights which kick out 2,000 lumen, and if this isn’t interesting for you, Skoda says that they are delivering the same intensity, almost, while being cheaper than the higher output ones.

Besides the new headlights, the 2014 Skoda Rapid will also get a new three-spoke steering wheel, improved infotainment system, revised trim, updated upholstery and some other tweaks. Changes don’t stop here as the 2014 Skoda Rapid will also receive a new engine. We’re talking about the 1.6 liter TDI diesel, which is producing a total output of 90 HP (66 kW). The unit can get the optional Green teck package, which is adding the brake energy regeneration, stop/start system and low-rolling resistance package. The 2014 Skoda Rapid will go on sale on the 5th of August.
