    2020 Skoda Rapid Features And Walkaround In Official Video

    by V3Cars Team on Thursday, Oct 17 2019

    Skoda recently revealed a walkaround video of the Scala hatchback. Skoda Scala is available in India in the sedan version and sold as Skoda Rapid. The European Scala hatchback can tell us a lot about what we can expect from the upcoming next-generation, 2020 Skoda Rapid. Let’s see what features the next-generation Skoda Rapid could have once it launches in India.

    2020 Skoda Rapid Engines

    • 1.0-litre turbo petrol with 5-speed manual transmission
    • 1.0-litre turbo petrol with 6-speed manual transmission
    • 1.0-litre turbo petrol with 7-speed dual-clutch automatic
    • 1.6-litre turbo diesel with 6-speed manual transmission (Euro-spec engine)
    • 1.6-litre turbo diesel with 7-speed dual-clutch automatic (Euro-spec engine)

    Given the declining demand for diesel engines and the stricter BS6 emission norms, we can expect the car to come with petrol engines only. The 1.0-litre turbo petrol engine with 6-speed manual and 7-speed dual-clutch automatic makes a suitable alternative to have in India.

    The 1.6-litre diesel engines are Europe-spec while the Indian versions are 1.5-litre in displacement. It’s difficult to predict if these engines in the Rapid will survive the transition to BS6. Making a sub-10 lakh rupee car BS6-compliant will add quite a bit to the cost and may make it too expensive. It remains to be seen if Skoda brings the diesel engine with the 2020 Rapid.
