Skoda has launched the Rapid Anniversary Edition for Rs 6.99 lakh (all India ex-showroom). It gets cosmetic updates over the features of the standard car but remains the same mechanically. This edition will be available across the range and we are currently awaiting details of what extra features each variant will get apart from the new TrackPro system.
The cosmetic external additions to the Anniversary Edition include door foils, roof foils while the cabin gets an additional wood trim. A new feature, which we suspect will become a standard in this variant very soon, is the TrackPro system. It allows owners to stay connected to their cars and track them 24x7.
It will also let owners record vehicle trip history, assign speed limits and boundary alerts and update tracking configurations like the owner’s number and vehicle registration IDs. The owner will also be able to setup mobile alerts to be notified on his or her car getting towed, over speeding, entering and exiting boundaries and whenever the tracking device is disconnected or re-connected with the vehicle.
Commenting on the launch of the Anniversary Edition, Ashutosh Dixit, director – sales, service and marketing, said, “The Skoda Rapid has been wowing buyers with its style, practicality and refinement since its launch in India, and now, thanks to Skoda’s commitment to enhance ownership experience and maximizing value, customers ordering the new Rapid Anniversary Edition will get even more value for their money. It’s a testament to Skoda’s enduring legacy of offering clever and practical solutions for its patrons. With an amalgamation of technical features, added safety measures, the Anniversary Edition will be a novel offering in the competitive C-segment.”
The Rapid Anniversary Edition will be on sale across all Skoda showrooms till the end of this month.
