     Skoda Rapid is Skoda's new car for India, built on the VW Vento platform. There was a big gap in Skoda's portfolio between the Fabia and Laura after retirement of Octavia. The company also need an entry level sedan to stay in the competition, hench the new Rapid evolved. Speculation about  a sedan version of  the Fabia hatchback was also considered but finally Skoda stuck to develop an all new car based on a new concept - Vision D.

     Vision D concept was showcased at the Geneva Motor Show 2011. The company had hinted about a new car on this concpet, but no body would have guessed the speed with which Skoda could develop and bring the car to India. Skoda Rapid, as it is expected to be called, will be launched with a strip down model with couple of features excluded, to compete with SX4 diesel and New Ford Fiesta.
