Chinese certification bodies have released photos of the SkodRapid liftback, which has undergone its second major update. The images were published by the local edition of Autohome.
- After the update, the model will resemble the European SkodScala hatchback, presented at the end of 2018 and replacing the Rapid model in Europe. They have similar headlights, tapering towards the large radiator grille, the brand name instead of the logo on the trunk lid and the lights partially transferred to the fifth door. Because of the new bumpers, the Rapid's length has grown by 29 millimeters (up to 4512 mm).
On the technical side, there will be no changes. In China, SkodRapid is equipped with a petrol 1.5-liter aspirated 110 hp, which is combined with a five-speed "mechanics" or a six-speed "automatic", depending on the version.
- The official premiere of the restyled SkodRapid liftback will take place in China before the end of 2019. Earlier it became known that in Russia the updated model will go on sale in the spring of 2020.
