The new Skoda Rapid Spaceback will arrive in the UK in January 2014 with a choice of three trim levels – S, SE and Elegance – and prices starting from £14,340.

Three petrol and two diesel engines will be available, with outputs ranging from 86PS to 122PS.

Skoda’s DSG dual-clutch transmission will be available as an option on the 90PS 1.6 TDI CR and 122PS 1.4 TSI.

A GreenLine version will follow later, boasting CO2 emissions of just 99 g/km.

The entry-level S model comes with 15-inch steel wheels, air conditioning, electric door mirrors and electric windows in the front only.

The SE adds a six-speaker stereo system with Bluetooth connectivity, 15-inch alloy wheels, leather steering wheel, rear parking sensors, body-coloured door mirrors and handles, cruise control, centre armrest, front fog lights, rear electric windows, and tinted glass.

The range-topping Elegance further adds 16-inch alloy wheels, aluminium and chrome trim, climate control, and a cornering function for the front fog lights.

Specifying the GreenTech package adds a brake energy recovery system and stop/start function for the engine.
