Skoda Rapid Combi Rendering
The Rapid five-door liftback sedan is 4,483 mm long, which makes it 83 mm shorter than the outgoing Octavia II, which will be replaced by a bigger model at the end of the year.
The Octavia will be free to move up-market, while the Rapid will likely take on its practical roles. Given this, a Rapid Combi estate is very likely.
The platform will continue to be the A05+, a stretched version of the one used by the Ibiza or Polo. The powertrains will start with the base 1.2-liter and end with the popular 1.6 TDI from the VW Group.
