Skoda Rapid ‘Spaceback’ Speculatively Rendered
text size: A- A+
However, if Skoda was to ditch the sedan rear end, and make it look like more of a ‘fastback’, then perhaps it would boost its appeal and attract some more style-conscious buyers into the Skoda showroom. With inspiration taken from the Vision D concept, the Rapid has been made to look like a proper hatchback/fastback, or ‘spaceback’.
The large rear window is steeply-raked, and gives the car a totally different look and feel to the sedan. It is also more compact, lighter and easier to park - the sedan would be more suitable for people who also travel outside of town, and carry lots of bags, but for people who just need a reliable compact city runabout, this would be by far the better choice.
