It has been a lacklustrous market for the past few months. Almost all manufacturers are facing the heat and to push sales up, we have been witnessing newer special editions of regular cars making headlines.
Following the trend, Skoda Auto India has also launched a limited edition of their Rapid sedan which is called as Rapid Leisure. Here is a list of all features of the Skoda Rapid Leisure Edition:
- Portable Navigation System
- Rear View Camera
- Rear Parking Sensors
- Door Sill Covers
- Leatherette seat covers
- 15 inch alloy wheels
- Special Edition badging
The Skoda Rapid Leisure Edition is available in both petrol and diesel variants along with the manual and automatic options. The 1.6L MPI petrol Rapid produces 105PS of power output and a maximum torque of 220Nm whereas the 1.6L TDI diesel Rapid churns out 105PS of peak power and a maximum torque of 250Nm.
Rapid Leisure Prices:
- Rapid Leisure 1.6 MPI Manual Petrol: Rs 7,79,352
- Rapid Leisure 1.6 MPI Automatic Petrol: Rs 8,79,625
- Rapid Leisure 1.6 TDI Manual Diesel : Rs 9,06,926
Skoda also tells us that this is a limited edition which means it will not be available forever. Basically, putting the ‘Limited’ period moniker sometimes urges a customer to buy a car with a feeling that the company might discontinue it! Sibling of Volkswagen Vento, Rapid has been pretty well received by the market. Addition of these features does make Rapid a more luring buy.
