Skoda UK Releases Two New Limited Edition Versions of Rapid with Added Content

For a short period of time, UK consumers interested in Skoda’s Rapid (liftback) saloon will have two more choices when it comes to trims with the launch of two limited production versions, each of which adds extra equipment “worth thousands of pounds”, according to the brand’s press blurb.

The first one is the Rapid SE Connect based on the Rapid 1.2-litre TSI 86PS SE that is offered in a choice of two exterior metallic paints, Brilliant Silver or Denim Blue, and gains 16-inch ‘Antia’ aluminum wheels, rear parking sensors and an Amundsen satellite navigation with DAB digital radio.

Production is limited to 800 units with pricing set at £12,990 on the road.

The other model is the Rapid Sport that builds on the 1.2-litre TSI 105PS SE model adding extra equipment worth £1,250, including 17-inch ‘Ray’ black alloy wheels, sunset glass, front fog lights, sports seats, steel pedals, black door mirrors and a rear spoiler.

Skoda said that only 200 examples of the Sport will be offered in the UK, each priced at £15,630 on the road.
