With lots of space, numerous ‘Simply Clever’ features, intelligent safety systems and low fuel consumption figures the new ŠKODA Rapid Spaceback is sure to impress.
“The Rapid Spaceback is a great addition to this class in that it combines ŠKODA’s good practical characteristics with the popular hatchback shape. Sporting the new ŠKODA design, the Rapid Spaceback has a fresh, dynamic and individual appearance. It is a compact car with a sporty chic, spacious and practical, ideal for young people and families,” – Prof. Dr. h.c. Winfried Vahland, ŠKODA CEO

The exterior of the new Rapid Spaceback exudes a dynamic elegance and features a new longer rear window design, which gives the car a sportier, stretched look, despite being 18cm shorter than the Rapid Hatch model.
The long roofline hasn’t been wasted; the Spaceback model will be available with a panoramic tinted glass roof, which stretches from the front windscreen to the rear window, giving rear passengers an unobstructed view of the sky.
The Rapid Spaceback’s dynamic silhouette is marked by clear lines, a long wheelbase (2,602 mm) and a sharp, high tornado line.
The front of the Spaceback model is based on the Rapid Hatch model. The core elements being the prominent grille, the new logo on the rounded front end of the bonnet and the cloverleaf arrangement of the headlights. The tail end of the car features clear lines and creates a balanced and uncluttered impression. A black diffuser element equally underlines the horizontal orientation as well as the broad tail lights in the brand-typical ‘C’ shape design.
As is typical of all ŠKODA models, the interior of the new Rapid Spaceback offers a lot of space. Despite the exterior of the new model measuring 18cm less than the Rapid Hatch, passenger space is just as generous as in the car’s ‘big brother’.
The rear of the Rapid Spaceback boasts impressive amounts of legroom (64mm) and headroom (980mm) and the boot space is equally impressive, with a maximum capacity of 415 litres with the rear seats up and 1,380 litres with the rear seats down.
