Skoda opens bookings for Rapid AT

Having kept half the globe guessing on what the teaser image mentioning P R N D S released by the company meant, Czech automaker Skoda has finally given out the answer of the riddle to be the new Rapid Automatic.

Don’t hold your breath just yet, Skoda has only begun accepting bookings for the new Rapid AT and not launched it yet. Booking amount however has been fixed at Rs 25,000 and one can book their car through the website at www.skodaauto.in or by visiting the dealership

The new Rapid automatic just like its manual counterpart will be powered by the 1.0 TSI three cylinder petrol engine, it makes 110PS at 5000-5500rpm and 175Nm of torque at 1750-4000rpm. The engine when paired with the upcoming six speed automatic will deliver 16.24kmpl under ARAI testing says Skoda.

Mr. Zac Hollis, Brand Director – ŠKODA AUTO India, said: “ŠKODA AUTO India recently introduced the new RAPID TSI range of products that now boasts state of the art 1.0 Turbocharged Stratified Injection engine offering the best of both worlds: exceptional power output and excellent fuel economy. An overwhelming response from brand loyalists and auto enthusiasts from across the nation has obligated the Czech marquee to push the yardstick further and introduce the convenience of an AT transmission across the RAPID TSI range, at a very competitive price point.”

The new Skoda Rapid AT when launched will take on the Hyundai Verna facelift, Honda City, Maruti Suzuki Ciaz and Toyota Yaris. The launch is expected to happen sometime in the middle of September which is when pricing will be announced as well.
