Skoda Rapid Coupé

10 Jul
2012

Autocar recently reported that a Rapid coupé could arrive in 2013. It’s called a coupé cause the Rapid is actually a 5-door notchback designed to look like a sedan, so removing two rear passenger doors, and we get what Skoda wants us to believe, a coupe, with a rear door/hatch.

Looks bland, but the original doesn’t help. Think you can take some inspiration from the old Skoda 110R? It was ugly, but it had more… personality.

Thanks PC. Perhaps when the Rapid Coupé comes in RS specification, it’ll look better.

wow, the old 110r looks good too. i am more familiar with the rapid 130rs though. but if they made a modern coupe and priced it right, plus have decent rear seating, i don’t think why it should not sell well.

Maybe, it’s sister car, the Seat Toldeo would look great in the coupé Cupra format?

That’s always something I’m not successful at, lengthening the front doors long appropriate for the coupe/3-door hatch. But anyway thanks Paul!
