According to Autocar, Skoda has confirmed its intentions to launch a conventional five-door hatchback version of its new Rapid. Its name however, is not revealed. My bet it replaces the Fabia, and should be called Fabia.
The report went on to say that there will be no three-door version of the Rapid because the market volumes would be too low. This contradicts the report a month earlier, that the Rapid Coupé (Rapid three-door) could be launched in 2013.
