Skoda Rapid Now Available from Cab Direct

September 19, 2017

We are pleased to announce that we can now offer the Skoda Rapid to our customers nationwide. This model offers compact hatchback space and practicality for supermini money. The Rapid comes with four high specification trim levels and five engine options, meaning there will be a version to suit all budgets. Both petrol and diesel versions are available to order due to all engines being economical choices.

Peace of Mind

Whichever version takes your fancy, you have the peace of mind that your car is powered by the latest Volkswagen Group technology. Petrol versions feature the lightweight and compact turbocharged 1.0 and 1.4 TSi powerplants. These offer performance that you would have associated with 1.6 or 1.8 litre engines only a few years ago. Diesel customers are well catered for with torquey 1.4 and 1.6 TDi units featuring a diesel particulate filter, meaning these are very environmentally friendly. If automatic transmission is your preference, the six speed Direct Shift Gearbox offers smooth and lightning fast gear changes.

With excellent space, reliability and running costs, it is easy to see why the Skoda Rapid is gaining popularity on taxi ranks throughout the UK.

Excellent Standard Specification

All Rapid variants enjoy a good level of standard equipment. Here is a summary of the trim levels:
