ŠKODA AUTO India commenced the booking window for the much awaited new RAPID Automatic against a refundable fee of ₹ 25,000 (Rupees Twenty Five Thousand Only), across all its authorized dealership facilities in the country and on the ŠKODA AUTO India website: https://www.buyskodaonline.co.in/. The pre booked ŠKODA RAPID Automatic will be delivered to customers from 18 September 2020.
Mr. Zac Hollis, Brand Director – ŠKODA AUTO India, said: “ŠKODA AUTO India recently introduced the new RAPID TSI range of products that now boasts state of the art 1.0 Turbocharged Stratified Injection engine offering the best of both worlds: exceptional power output and excellent fuel economy. An overwhelming response from brand loyalists and auto enthusiasts from across the nation has obligated the Czech marque to push the yardstick further and introduce the convenience of an AT transmission across the RAPID TSI range, at a very competitive price point.”
At the heart of the new ŠKODA RAPID Automatic is an incredible new TSI mill. Displacing 999 cm3, the new three cylinder 1.0 TSI petrol engine makes 110 PS (81 kW) of power at 5000 – 5500 rpm and 175 Nm of torque at 1750 – 4000 rpm. The new RAPID AT, with the six speed automatic transmission, offers 16.24 kmpl under standard test conditions.
When compared with the outgoing 1.6 MPI engine, the new ŠKODA RAPID Automatic offers a 5% upsurge in power and a 14% rise in torque output. At the same time, the new RAPID offers a 9% increase in fuel efficiency against the previous motor. The new RAPID AT is calibrated for refinement, efficiency as well as performance, and perfectly fits the urbane lifestyle of the ŠKODA AUTO customers.
