Skoda Company has extended the official sketches of the European version of Rapid, the world premiere to be held in September at the Paris Motor Show in 2012. As expected, the new Skoda Rapid appearance is almost exactly the same MissionL concept, shown at last year’s Motor Show in Frankfurt. The car will get a brand new grille and emblem, which soon will also move to other models of the company. The model number of the compact sedan Skoda Rapid will take an intermediate position between the Fabia and Octavia. By the way, to call a novelty sedan is not quite right – the tailgate of the car will rise along with the rear window. With regard to the range of engines, it is assumed that it will borrow from the European version of the Volkswagen Polo. For the Russian market the release of Skoda Rapid will establish the plant in Kaluga, but the timing of the start of sales and pricing information yet.
