The new Skoda Rapid will appear in Russia in 2020


The compact second-generation Skoda Rapid liftback will appear in the Russian market in 2020. The head of Skoda brand in Russia, Jan Prokhazka, also said in an interview with "Za rulem. RF" that the new car was designed exclusively for the Russian market. It was previously reported that the new Skoda Rapid will be released at the end of 2021.

The model will be based on the MQB A0 platform, which also creates the next generation Polo and a budget crossover based on it. 1.0 and 1.5 liter TSI engines are available for this platform, which are paired with a manual gearbox or DSG.

Currently, the price of Skoda Rapid in the initial Active configuration with a 1.6 liter engine (90 HP) and a manual gearbox is 785 thousand rubles. The top version of the Monte Carlo with an engine of 1.4 liters (125 HP) and AMT is offered for 1 million 157 thousand rubles. As AUTOSTAT previously reported, Skoda Rapid compact liftback is the brand’s unconditional bestseller in the Russian market - by the results of 8 months of 2019, the sales of this model remained at the last year's level and reached 22,682 cars.

In addition, Yan Prokhazka said that the first copies of Skoda Karoq compact crossover will reach Russian buyers only after the New Year. Full information about the new product for the Russian market will be disclosed in the fourth quarter of 2019; however, it is already known that Karoq will receive not only a 1.4 turbo engine, but also a 1.6-liter atmospheric engine localized in Russia. Also, the head of Skoda in Russia did not rule out the appearance of a diesel unit in the Russian engine range of Karoq. As it was previously reported, in the third quarter of 2019, Skoda plans to begin sales of the updated Superb in Russia, the world premiere of which was held in May.
