Skoda re-introduces the Rapid Monte Carlo as Edition X

Skoda re-introduces the Rapid Monte Carlo as Edition X

Skoda has re-launched the Rapid Monte Carlo with a new name following a trademark dispute. The special trim will be called as the Edition X.

The Rapid Monte Carlo edition was recently launched in India. However, Skoda India had to pull it off from its website after a court ruled against the company in a trademark infringement case. The carmaker has been restrained from using the ‘Monte Carlo’ name after clothing and apparel brand Monte Carlo Fashions alleged infringement of its trademark under the Trade Marks Act, 1999.

As a result, Skoda has dropped the Monte Carlo name and adopted Edition X for the trim that will still come with the unique features. These include a dual-tone front bumper, a black grille, smoked headlamps and fog lamps. The roof and B-pillar is blacked-out, and the car rides on black alloy wheels too. The cabin of the Edition X is expected to be the same as the Monte Carlo.

The powertrains for the Rapid Edition X will be carried over from the Monte Carlo too. The petrol trim comes powered by a 1.6-litre mill producing 103bhp and 153Nm of torque, while the 1.5-litre diesel churns out 109bhp and 250Nm of torque. Transmission options include a five-speed manual as standard, while a six-speed petrol automatic or seven-speed diesel automatic can also be had. Since the car essentially remains the same except for the change in name, we can expect the prices to remain unchanged too.
