It’s been ages since Skoda unveiled the MissionL Concept in September 2011 at the Frankfurt Motor Show. We loved the angular look of those headlights and the new grille this compact sedan came with.
But the first production version, oddly enough, was launched in India. The Rapid sedan, as it came to be known, quickly gained in popularity there and was named “Family Car of the Year in India.”

According to German magazine Auto Motor und Sport, the European debut of the Rapid sedan will take place at the upcoming Geneva Motor Show, which is little more than a couple of weeks away. What’s more, when it’s introduced to the German market, it should cost as little as €13,000. Now, we’re going to guess this means you’ll get the usual 1.2-liter TSI with about 85 hp, but it’s the perfect car if your extra cash is as hard to find as a 10-year old’s. Which is probably true for a lot of people in crisis-struck Europe.

Mihnea's favorite cars have already been built, the so-called modern classics from the '80s and '90s. He also loves local car culture from all over the world, so don't be surprised to see him getting excited about weird Japanese imports, low-rider VWs out of Germany, replicas from Russia or LS swaps down in Florida.
