The ŠKODA Rapid is about to become even more attractive. Beginning August 5th,
 the popular compact sedan will be available with the 1.6 TDI 66 kW
diesel engine. Furthermore, the interior of the Rapid will be updated
with new three-spoke steering wheels, new decorative trims and seat
covers as well as other enhancements of the design. Also, modern xenon
highlights will be available as an option.

Effective
immediately, the 1.6 TDI 66 kW (90 PS) diesel engine will broaden the
range of engines of the ŠKODA Rapid even more. The engine works with
direct common rail injection, is equipped with diesel particle filters
and may either be combined with an automatic seven-gear dual clutch
transmission or a manual five-gear transmission.

Likewise,
the particularly environmentally-friendly Green tec version is offered
for the new entry-level diesel. The Green tec package includes fuel
consumption-reducing technologies such as the automatic start-stop
mechanism, brake energy recovery and rolling-resistant tires. The CO2
emission of the Rapid 1.6 TDI 66 kW Green tec amounts to just 104 g/km,
with normal consumption being 3.9 l per 100 km.
