Skoda Rapid Spaceback arrives in Australia

Skoda has introduced the new Rapid Spaceback to Australia where the cheapest version of the model is now available to its future customers from 18,990 AUD.

The Skoda Rapid Spaceback entry-level version is undercutting some of its main rivals, like the Holden Cruze, the Nissan Pulsar, the Ford Focus, the Hyundai i30, the Toyota Corolla or the Mazda3, and even its cousin, the Volkswagen Golf, by a whopping 2,500 AUD. All Rapid models have the electronic stability control or six airbags, amongst others, but none of them can be ordered with satellite navigation system, touch screen infotainment, rearview camera and others.

Power to the cheapest model is being provided by a 1.2 liter turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine, which is rated at 77 kW at 5,000 rpm and 175 Nm of torque, available between 1,550 rpm and 4,100 rpm. The average fuel consumption stands at 5.4 liters / 100 km. The Ambition comes next, from 21,890 AUD, with its 1.4 liter turbocharged four-cylinder TSI, rated at 90 kW. This only comes with the 7-speed DSG. The top of the line Elegance can be yours from 23,750 AUD and it’s coming with the same engine as the Ambition but with climate control, automatic headlights and wipers, rear parking sensors and 17-inch alloy wheels.
