Prices and specs have been announced for the new Skoda Rapid, ranging from £12,900 to £17,850

Prices for the Skoda Rapid have been announced. The entry-level Rapid S costs from £12,900, rising to £17,850 for the top-spec Rapid Elegance.

The Rapid is the first car to feature Skoda’s new design language, which was previewed by the Vision D concept at the 2011 Geneva Motor Show.

But while the concept was a hatchback, the Rapid that goes on sale in the UK on 12 November will be a saloon model.

Four petrol engines and one diesel will be available from launch, mated to either a five or six-speed manual, or seven-speed DSG dual clutch automatic.

Skoda Rapid S models get remote central locking, daytime running lights, a height-adjustable driver’s seat and electric front windows.

The Rapid SE cars add 15-inch alloy wheels, air-conditioning, a leather-covered steering wheel and Bluetooth connectivity.

Range-topping Elegance models have 16-inch alloys, front fog lamps, cruise control, a height-adjustable passenger seat and rear electric windows.
