New Skoda Rapid design sketch revealed; India launch in late 2021

- Global premiere in Russia towards the end of 2019

- India-spec Rapid will be launched in 2021

- Will be based on the MQB A0-IN platform

Skoda has revealed the first design sketch of the next-generation Rapid. The mid-size sedan will make its world premiere in Russia towards the end of this year.

Design of the new Skoda Rapid is inspired by the European-spec Skoda Scala hatchback, and features dynamic lines and altered optics that offer a modern look to the car. It features new arrow-shaped LED headlamps, a butterfly radiator grille and strong character lines on the bonnet. The profile features a character line below the window-line that connects the headlights and the tail lamps. Spy shots have shown that it will also get Scala-like LED taillights.

The new-generation Skoda Rapid will be based on the MQB A0 platform, which also underpins the likes of the Volkswagen Virtus, Skoda Kamiq and the Volkswagen T-Cross among others. And all these cars will make their way into the domestic market in India in 2021. However, all these cars will be underpinned by the MQB A0-IN platform, which is a highly localized version of the MQB A0 for the Indian conditions.

Under the hood, the new-gen Skoda Rapid is expected to get multiple gasoline engines in Europe. The India-spec model, however, is likely to be powered by a 1.0-litre three-cylinder TSI petrol engine that will produce 114bhp and 200Nm. Transmission options may include a six-speed manual gearbox and a seven-speed DSG. In India, the Skoda Rapid will compete against the upcoming Honda City, Maruti Suzuki Ciaz and the Hyundai Verna.
