Test Drive Skoda Rapid Spaceback – a Hatchback With Its Own Advantages and Disadvantages
In Russia, the price of Rapid Spaceback has not yet been announced, but in Europe, prices start at 14,990 euros (about 660,000 rubles).
Before us is, in general, the usual Rapid, only without a tail (4 304 mm long), which allowed us to call the model a liftback. After the “operation”, the boot volume was reduced to 415 with the seats unfolded and 1,380 liters with the seats folded down. As compensation – a certain glamor and charm that strikingly distinguishes these two bodies. Also, the Skoda Rapid Spaceback received a panoramic roof, the length of which is 1 210 millimeters, and the width – 780 millimeters. In Europe, they ask for 1,000 euros. In addition, for an additional fee, you can install an enlarged glass on the fifth door, the border of which is 100 millimeters lower than the standard. Plus, such cars will receive tinted taillights. All this makes Rapid Spaceback more noticeable on the road – you are provided with views in the stream.panoramnaya-crusher-rapid-space back
Inside, the hatchback Skoda Rapid Spaceback differs from the three-spoke steering wheel liftback resembling those in the Jaguar, as well as high-gloss aluminum plates. “In the base” the European version of the model is equipped with a stabilization system and six airbags. Optional are tire pressure sensors and xenon headlights with the manual hydraulic corrector. Navigation is also available, which works very slowly even at a speed of 60 km / h.interior-Skoda-rapid-space back
However, even with all these options, the interior is still quite simple. Of course, the interior of Rapid Spaceback can be decorated with aluminum trim, but this does not change the overall impression. Even installing climate control and a multimedia system doesn’t really change anything. Before us is a typical salon of the Czech brand – spacious, solid and incredibly thought out, but nothing catches it.
The seats of the Rapid Spaceback are very comfortable, solid and reasonably dense, probably suitable for any driver. For a surcharge, sports seats with integrated head restraints and improved lateral support will be offered. Rear passengers are also not deprived, there is enough space there both in front of the knees and over the head. You can better understand this in the photo of the Skoda Rapid Spaceback below.
