The Skoda Rapid is doing quite well in 2015, selling more units than other popular rivals. The ScoutLine version should help the Rapid Spaceback grow even more.
Skoda sold 18,834 Rapids in Europe in Q1 of 2015, a total that surpasses that of the KIA cee’d, Hyundai i30, Mazda3, Nissan Pulsar, Honda Civic and Citroen C4 – in that order.
The Rapid isn’t even a genuine C-Segment car, and yet people are clearly appreciating its practicality, and perhaps even its looks.
Speaking of which, how about this Rapid Spaceback ScoutLine version with its “outdoor” appearance? It features plastic elements for the exterior, 16″ & 17″ alloy wheels, plus a few other subtle changes.
“The combination of ŠKODA’s practical features and fresh designs have convinced a great number of customers,” said Skoda Board Member for Sales and Marketing, Werner Eichhorn, before adding that “We plan to build on this success with the ScoutLine edition.”
The mods aren’t as adventurous as on previous Scouts, but you do get matte-black front and rear bumpers, matte black textured plastic fixtures on the sides, 16″ ‘Rock’ or 17″ ‘Camelot’ wheels, silver mirror housings and a full range of exterior colors, including ‘pistachio green’.
Also, all drivetrains are available with the exception of the GreenLine engines. So you can choose between three petrol units (90HP/110HP/125HP) and two diesels (90HP/116HP) when you’re deciding on which Rapid Spaceback ScoutLine you want to purchase.
All engines obviously comply with EU6 emission standards and come equipped with a start-stop system and regenerative braking.
