Skoda Test Vehicle Caught With An Identity Crisis
The Citigo city vehicle will not get a new gen because of poor demand. Therefore, the Rapid is the producer’s oldest offering within the range.
It may look like Skoda has commenced public road testing of a successor with the help of the body of the latest SEAT Ibiza supermini. There were some changes applied as the car has an identity disorder because it carries the automaker’s corporate front enclosure and the winged arrow logo on its wheels.
The Rapid in both regular and Spaceback configurations was upgraded some time earlier in 2017 for the Motor Show held in Geneva. It looks like everything is well underway for the next gen. The unit should come out in the end of next year or in the beginning of 2019. The car will change its platform to the MQB unit. By the way, all Skodas use i, except for the Citigo and the Fabia supermini.
