The ŠKODA Rapid is the first car to truly embody ŠKODA’s new design language, characterised by clean lines and sharp angles. The stunning lines of the car allow light and darkness to interplay, creating a dynamism and timeless elegance. At the same time, the Rapid remains very loyal to ŠKODA’s core values, offering outstanding space, fantastic value for money and a car which has been designed at every stage with the driver and passengers in mind.
