The Czech republic has brought their Rapid to Australia. The Skoda Rapid has just been unveiled at the Sydney Motor Show ahead of the car’s launch next year.

The compact-sized Skoda Rapid will initially be offered with a choice of two petrol engines before the middle of next year before the diesel variants arrive later on.

Skoda will offer the small car with either a 1.2-litre 77TSI with 77kW and 175Nm of torque or a 1.4-litre engine with 90kW and 200Nm. Measuring 4.48 metres in length and 1.7 metres in width, the five-seat Rapid offers a rather large 530L boot.

The Skoda Rapid is also the first car from the East European brand that showcases the company’s new family look.
