The interiors also will also be spruced up as it is a special edition variant.

The current Rapid comes with a 1.6 litre diesel engine under the hood and it is expected the special edition Skoda Rapid will come with the new 1.5 litre diesel engine in 2 states of tune. There is also the possibility of Skoda plonking the DSG gearbox on the diesel variant.
