As its name suggests, the new ŠKODA Rapid Spaceback is a hatchback with space. It sounds simple enough, but being so compact and spacious at once is only possible with the kind of thoughtful, practical design and added visual flair that ŠKODA practises.
The exterior of the Rapid Spaceback is defined by long, clean lines, which unite body and glass for a smooth, assured silhouette. Functionality and beauty combine in the panoramic sunroof, available on the SE Sport, which further enhances the car’s sense of openness and space by bringing in masses of natural light.
The range of engines for the Rapid Spaceback allows for pleasurable driving as well as being kind to the environment. Similarly to the Rapid Saloon, the Rapid Spaceback is available with four petrol and two diesel engines.
With the Rapid Spaceback safety comes first. Electronic Differential Lock (EDL) works together with ABS sensors, the electronic control unit (ECU) continually receives data from ABS wheel speed sensors on the driven wheels. If ECU detects that one wheel is slipping, having hit ice on the road for example, it applies the brake pressure to match its speed to the second, non-slipping wheel. This also directs the torque to the wheel with better traction, which is able to transfer more power.
