Skoda Rapid Spaceback prices announced

By next green car
Following on from the successful launch of the Rapid, and ahead of the January showroom debut for the Rapid Spaceback, SKODA has revealed pricing and specification of the fuel-sipping Green Line versions of both cars.
Each is powered by SKODA's proven 1.6-litre TDI CR 90PS DPF diesel engine linked to a five-speed manual transmission. The result is emissions of just 99g/km and an official combined cycle fuel economy of 74.3mpg.
With BIK values of just 11% the pair are expected to be especially popular with fleet and corporate customers. Running costs are further reduced because each is in VED Band A.
Both cars come with 15-inch 'Carme' alloy wheels with low rolling resistance tyres, front fog lights and sunset glass. Inside there is a height-adjustable driver's seat and air-conditioning. These features are in addition to the standard equipment which is on all Rapid and Rapid Spaceback cars. That includes heated door mirrors, height-adjustable head rests and reach-and-rake adjustable steering wheel.
The SKODA Rapid Spaceback broadens the Rapid's appeal in the compact family hatchback segment. With its class-leading 415-litre boot, it sets new sector standards for interior space and is available with a number of personalisation options that allow buyers to tailor the car to their own tastes. All versions, including the GreenLine model, arrive in showrooms in January 2014.
The SKODA Rapid GreenLine is priced at £17,535 on the road, while the Rapid Spaceback GreenLine is £17,195. The duo are available to order now, with first customer deliveries expected early in 2014.
