Skoda has announced the pricing of the all-new 2014 Rapid Spaceback. The affordable car will be available in showrooms in January, next year. The pricing starts from £14,340 for the S model with 1.2 TSI 86HP and goes up to £18,900 for the Elegance powered by a 1.6 liter TDI CR 90HP equipped with DSG gearbox.

The new Rapid Spaceback introduces a dynamic new dimension to the ŠKODA range.  The second model in the Rapid range sets sector standards for interior space and offers exceptional practicality thanks to its 415-litre boot.

Specification levels across the range are generous, with all three Spaceback models fitted with additional equipment over the Rapid. AC is standard across the line-up, along with curtain airbags, front electric windows and a height and reach adjustable steering column. SE models feature alloy wheels, acoustic rear parking sensors, cruise control and a Bluetooth telephone connection, while Elegance models add, among other items, climate control, height-adjustable passenger seat and cornering front fog lights.
