The world premiere of the Rapid Spaceback and facelifted Yeti represents another milestone in ŠKODA’s product plan – a strategy that will see eight new or facelifted models arrive before the end of 2013. With the arrival of these important models, ŠKODA remains on target to achieve its sales target of at least 1.5 million cars by 2018.

The new Rapid Spaceback applies fresh and original thinking to an established and typically conservative area of the compact family hatchback market. The Rapid Spaceback’s design combines established ŠKODA qualities with unique styling and exceptional functionality. With its bold design language and individual character, the Rapid Spaceback brings something genuinely new to the sector, and further confirms ŠKODA as a forward-thinking brand.

In addition to its striking design, the Rapid Spaceback offers a vast array of personalisation options that allow buyers to tailor the car to their own tastes. Among the styling options are a large panoramic glass roof and extended tailgate glazing.
Inside, the Rapid Spaceback sets new standards in the compact family hatchback sector. Rear passengers enjoy the highest levels of knee- and headroom in the class, while the 415 litre boot (extendable to 1,380 litres) offers exceptional practicality. The cabin builds on the strengths of the standard Rapid and adds new steering wheels, fresh upholstery fabrics and new trim.

The engine range comprises of four petrol and two diesel units. The line-up will also include a GreenLine version with CO2emissions of just 99 g/km.

With a new look and an expanded range, the facelifted Yeti is set to embark on a fascinating new adventure. The revised version of ŠKODA’s award-winning crossover makes its world debut at Frankfurt, delivering more choice and new to the brand technologies.

Recognising the broad appeal of the Yeti, ŠKODA has developed the facelifted Yeti range to incorporate two different variants – Yeti and Yeti Outdoor. The former has been designed to look and feel at home in the big city, and features body-coloured bumpers, side protective mouldings and rear panels to give a smoother, sleeker look. The Yeti Outdoor, in contrast, features black plastic mouldings that sit perfectly with the SUV’s rugged and adventurous image.

Six different engines will be available across the revised Yeti line-up, with the option of front-wheel-drive or all wheel drive with a new fifth-generation Haldex coupling. In addition, the facelifted Yeti offers new alloy wheel designs and fresh interior design features, including steering wheels, new seat fabrics or decorative trim pieces. The Yeti can also be equipped with a parking camera for the first time.
