Skoda testing Rapid Spaceback image

The Czech based automaker Skoda is currently testing a new version of the Rapid, the Spaceback, which has recently spotted on a public highway.

After unveiling the Rapid in Europe just last year, the car manufacturer has more plans for its new model, which is slotting between the Fabia and the Octavia. One of these plans include a Combi which, unlike its larger brother, will be named the Spaceback. The model in question has been recently spied on a highway, where the carmaker has been testing it. The front fascia and interior design remain identical to the ones of the regular model and the only part different will be its rear end.

More details on the Skoda Rapid Spaceback remain unknown for the moment but as a quick reminder, the regular version is 4,483 mm long, 1,706 mm wide and 1,461 mm tall, riding on a 2,602 mm long wheelbase. As for the engine lineup, this is including the 1.6 liter TDI with 88 HP and 230 Nm of torque or with 103 HP and 250 Nm of torque, the new 1.2 MPI with 74 HP and 112 Nm of torque, the 1.2 TSI turbocharged with 84 HP and 160 Nm of torque or 103 HP and 175 Nm and the 1.4 TSI with 121 HP and 200 Nm.
