The deliveries of the Skoda Rapid AT will begin from September 18, 2020. This Rapid will be offered with a 6-speed Automatic transmission along with a 1.0-litre petrol engine.
Zac Hollis, Brand Director - Skoda Auto India, said: “Skoda Auto India recently introduced the new Rapid TSI range of products that now boasts state of the art 1.0 Turbocharged Stratified Injection engine offering the best of both worlds: exceptional power output and excellent fuel economy.
