Multitasking isn’t always a choice. Ask any
man who’s also a husband and a father.
You have to be many people, in many
places, all at the same time. Each day
is unscripted, full of surprises that
sometimes turn into challenges. Everyone
wants something and they’re all staring
at the same guy. You. It’s a job of great
responsibility, but it’s also the greatest
joy you’ll ever have.
While every dad does his best for his
family, he can sometimes use a little
help. So we’ve prepared our own toolkit
for you. It’s called the ŠKODA Rapid.
A family car that doesn’t look like one.
Its pure, elegant contours and modern
design make a bold statement. But like
you, we don’t appreciate beauty without
brains either. So we packed in enormous
room and thoughtful features that make
dad’s job just that bit easier. Like side
pockets for your mobile phone, an ice
scraper on the fuel cap or hooks in the
luggage compartment to keep shopping
bags upright. So you’ll love the car.
And your loved ones will love you for it.
There are some things he won’t learn at school.
Some journeys can make a father feel like a boy.
The car is equipped with the sports package offered by ŠKODA Genuine Accessories.
My son wants to be a pilot. And I will be his first instructor.
Usually I hate shopping. Usually…
Thankfully there is no holiday from being a dad.
The design of the Rapid
will captivate you with its
simplicity and precision.
It represents a new design
language of the ŠKODA
brand that brings with
it clear lines, clean
surfaces and balanced
proportions. The front
grille together with
the headlamps creates
a design whole that
visually widens the car.
The new ŠKODA logo
distinctively stands out
above the chrome frame
of the grille.
A characteristic feature
of the new design is
the sharp edges of the
headlamps and fog
lamps. The lower parts
of the headlamps have
angled covers reminding
one of the elegance of
Bohemian crystal. With
regard to functionality,
the top option is fog
lamps featuring the
Corner function and
daytime running lights.
The Rapid has large and distinctive
ŠKODA lettering in the rear.
The large rear lights, which wrap
around to the sides, illuminate
the dark in the traditional
ŠKODA way with the letter C.
Thanks to the black B-column,
the glazed area of the side windows
appears uniform and suggests a large
interior space. SunSet, windows
with a higher density of tint in the rear,
underscore the elegance of the Rapid
and protect rear passengers from
When looking at the Rapid from the rear or the side you notice not only the elegant clean surfaces and dynamically sharp lines, but also
the robustness of the car, which evokes reliability and strength. The large 5th door is a design feature that is highly functional, because
it gives you excellent access to the luggage compartment. The angled surfaces cannot be overlooked and create space for the number plate.
The instrument panel displays important
information in the driver’s field of vision. Depending
on selected options, it has a tachometer and
speedometer housed in chrome frames. The top
version of the instrument panel is equipped with
the Maxi DOT display, which not only displays
data from the on-board computer (average
consumption, range, etc.), but data from other
car equipment, such as air conditioning and
the navigation system.
You will surely not get lost in unfamiliar places
with the Amundsen+ navigation system,
which is controlled via a 5" touch-screen
display. In addition to its many functions,
the system can display information
from the Climatronic air conditioning
and thanks to the MDI (Mobile Device
Interface), also from external equipment.
The Swing radio with a dual tuner,
dual antenna and CD, CD-MP3 and
CD-WMA players will provide you
with great listening pleasure and
entertainment on long drives.
The dashboard, which matches the design of the exterior with its clear and clean style, is practically arranged so the driver clearly sees everything at a glance. All the controls
on the dashboard and the driver’s door are within reach and placed where the driver intuitively expects them to be. The 4-spoke steering wheel comes in several versions.
The top option is a leather multifunctional steering wheel with controls for the radio and phone as well as a decorative chrome moulding.
The 7-speed DSG (Direct Shift Gearbox),
supplied with the 1.4 TSI/90kW engine,
combines the advantages of manual and
conventional automatic transmissions.
Its quick shifting results in excellent
acceleration. When you select the optimum
gear option, the DSG is able to keep the
engine at optimal revolutions and, during
economic driving, this results in low fuel
consumption and thus lower CO2 emissions.
Storage compartments and “simply
clever” details will make your daily
use of the car more pleasant and help
you keep order inside. For example,
the eyeglasses compartment located
above the interior rear-view mirror will
be particularly appreciated by drivers
who change sunglasses for spectacles
before driving.
The drinks holder in the centre
console is dual-sized so, according
to the size of the container, you
can put your drink in a place where
it will be firmly held even in turns.
The holder is within reach of
the driver and front passenger.
One of the many “simply clever” features is located under the driver’s
seat. A special pocket for a reflective vest is located there, making
the vest immediately within reach if you need it.
The closed storage compartment in the lower part
of the dashboard by the front passenger, in cars with
Climatronic air conditioning, can cool drinks during
your trip.
The parking ticket holder
is located right in front
of your eyes at the edge
of the windscreen. From now
on you will not have to search
through your pockets in front
of the parking machine.
The storage compartments in both front doors can easily hold a 1.5-litre
bottle, while children can store their favourite 0.5-litre drink in the storage
compartments in the rear doors.
The front armrest,
which conceals
a storage compartment
for small items, increases
the comfort of both
the driver and front
passenger. “Simply
clever” details include
storage pockets on
the insides of the seat
backrests, where you
can store a map, mobile
phone, etc.
The rear seat armrest with an integrated holder for two drinks gives rear
seat passengers the opportunity to enjoy the ride with refreshments.
You can create
an opening
between the
and luggage
in cars with an
armrest in the
rear and thus
easily transport
longer objects
in the interior.
Other places that the Rapid offers for storing bottles, cans or thermos during
your trip are the drinks holders opposite the rear seats and in the storage
compartments in the rear doors. The pockets in the front seat backrests
are ideal for things you want to keep within reach during your trip.
You can rely on the safety of the
Rapid even under extreme conditions.
Standard equipment includes a wide
range of safety features, such as
the ESC (Electronic Stability Control)
including ABS (Anti-lock Braking
System) and six airbags.*
As standard are the head
airbags, which create a wall
when activated and protect
passengers in the front
and rear from potential
head injuries.
Large-volume driver and
front passenger airbags
activate in conjunction
with the front seat belt
pretensioners, which
literally anchor you in the
right place in the middle
of the seat. The car can
be equipped with the
deactivation of the front
seat passenger airbag,
so you can place a child
seat on the front seat.*
Front side airbags are designed to protect the pelvis and chest
of the driver and front passenger in the event of a side impact.
The front headrests are height adjustable.
Families that fully occupy the car will certainly
appreciate the option of equipping the car
with a third headrest in the rear, designed
for the passenger in the middle seat.
* Applies to EU countries.
The ice scraper
mounted on the
fuel cap will be
immediately within
reach the moment
you need it. In short,
you will begin to
appreciate the “simply
clever” details of the
Rapid model from the
very first frost.
The double-sided carpet in the luggage
compartment has fabric on one side and
a washable rubber finish on the other. If
necessary, you can easily turn it over and even
muddy boots will not prevent you from keeping
the luggage compartment clean and tidy.
The luggage
compartment cover
can sometimes
interfere when loading
larger objects, such
as a children’s bicycle.
If you do not want to
remove it entirely, you
can put it in the folded
down position and
after unloading it will
still be available.
The Net Programme, which consists of two vertical nets and one horizontal net on the floor,
enables you to easily secure things so they do not shift while driving.
Whether you are going on a big shopping spree or on a family vacation, the Rapid can handle all circumstances extremely well. It is also able to adapt to current requirements.
Folding down the rear seats increases the basic volume of the luggage compartment of 550 litres up to a total of 1,490 litres. If necessary, you can fold down one or two backrests
and get more storage space while there remains a place for seating in the rear.
You can hang not only bags but
also camping equipment and
other things that could become
damaged while driving, using
the strong hooks in the luggage
compartment. You can extend
the storage options of the car
with the storage compartments
behind the rear wheel arches.
At home my wife is the chef. Outside, I take the orders.
The car is equipped with the chrome package offered by ŠKODA Genuine Accessories.
We offer a 3-part foldable snow
shovel, including a practical textile
cover, for trips in search of winter
pleasures. The shovel is made of
alloy and weighs only 750 grams.
The thermo-electric cooling box with a capacity of 15 litres
enables you to primarily keep food fresh and refreshing.
The cooler can keep items cool up to 20°C below the ambient
outside temperature. Switching it to a thermobox gives you
heating of 65°C.
Everybody who likes to
keep their personal things
within reach and in their
place will welcome the
mobile phone and purse
You can securely attach other
racks and holders, such as a bicycle
carrier, box for skis or snowboards,
etc., onto the basic roof rack.
The ISOFIX DUO plus Top Tether child
seat will ensure the maximum safety
and comfort of your little passengers
when travelling because, in addition to
Isofix belts, it is attached using the Top
Tether system on its rear side. The seat
has three adjustable positions (sitting,
resting and lying) and is designed for
children from 9 kg up to 18 kg.
The removable
boot tray can
be utilised for
primarily light
items, which you
can then quickly
unload from
the car using
the cover.
Door sill covers, in black, effectively protect
the door sills against mechanical damage
when getting in and out of the car.
You can find these products in ŠKODA Genuine Accessories. You can also find information
on the complete assortment of accessories at your authorised ŠKODA partner.
The dynamic appearance of your car
is highlighted with anthracite 7.0J x 17"
Ray alloy wheels for 215/40 R17 tyres.
The textile foot mats offered
in the Prestige version (pictured)
and Standard version will help
you keep the car interior clean.
In addition to easy care they
have outstanding durability.
The universal fixative element
in the luggage compartment will
help you divide the floor into
smaller areas according to the
size of the luggage, preventing
unwanted movement.
The netting programme reliably prevents the shifting
of smaller items, and you can also easily see where you
put things.
The rubber boot mat, which can be easily cleaned with water, will
outstandingly protect upholstery from getting dirty.
The attractive Vintage interior in
the Elegance equipment version
comes in two colour versions.
The first has beige fabric seat
upholstery and the dashboard
and door panels in an Onyx/beige
combination. The second option
has grey/black upholstery and
the dashboard and door panels
in an Onyx/Onyx combination.
The interior has many chrome
elements such as trim on the
steering wheel, vent frames
and more.

equipment version. It can have
