With the fast approaching festive season, the auto makers in India have started launching a slew of new special edition models. Czech automaker Skoda is also not behind in the race of catching the attention of the car buyers in India during the festive period and has launched a new special edition model of its Rapid sedan. Skoda Auto India has launched the new Rapid Onyx Edition in the domestic car market of the country starting at Rs 9.75 lakhs (ex-showroom across India). The new sportier looking Rapid Onyx Edition has been offered across the four model trims of the sedan in both petrol and diesel versions.
The new Skoda Rapid Onyx Edition is similar to the Octavia Onyx edition that was launched earlier, and flaunts the similar black treatment all over to offer an added sporty look. The overall design language of the Rapid sedan remains unchanged, while Skoda has made updates styling elements in the new Onyx Edition model. There’s the signature grille that has been finished in black with a classy chrome surround, blacked out projector headlights housings, glossy black 16 inch Clubber alloys with matching Bolt covers and LED DRLs. The Onyx Edition also flaunts black exterior mirrors, black body side mouldings, black trunk lip garnish, while the B Pillars flaunt glossy black décor. The Rapid Onyx is available in two exterior body colour options – Candy White and Lapiz Blue in order to flaunt the black styling elements better.
