Its Skoda Rapid and not Lauretta, launch in November

     In our earlier post we had mentioned that the new Skoda’s mid-size sedan will be named Lauretta. But now it is official that the car indeed will be called Rapid and not Lauretta.


     Unveiling the car today at CNBC Car n Bike show, Dr. Oliver Gruenberg announced the name of the car as ‘Rapid’ and the car will be available for sale from November this year. Dr. Oliver also talked about the design theme and engine options of the car.


     The design has been carried from the Volkswagen Vento and you can hardly differentiate Rapid from side and rear profile. However the front end has distinctive Skoda Fabia look. The tail lamps though look like the Vento’s it is little different with C shape lighting as seen in the Laura.


     The ‘Rapid’ bridges the gap between Fabia and Larua in Skoda India family. The ‘Rapid’ is surely give a run for the money in the C segment which is already crowded with new launched such as All new Fiesta, Fluidic Verna and SX4 diesel. Expect the Rapid to cost around Rs. 10 lakh.
