We do not know at this stage much about Skoda’s new compact hatch but we do know that it will be called the Rapid (hopefully it will be more engaging than the last model of that name) and will be with us later in 2012.
The Skoda Rapid will sit between the Fabia and Octavia models and will be targeted directly at the family buyer. Skoda are aiming to bring a new model to the market every six months over the years ahead.
There will a Skoda Rapid tailored for the Chinese market, which will be built in China and can be seen at the Beijing motor show.
