Skoda Auto India has pitched its Rapid Prestige in the mid-size sedan segment of the domestic market. The stunning limited edition model would challenge the likes of Honda City, Hyundai Verna Fluidic, Maruti Suzuki SX4, Nissan Sunny, Renault Scala and Ford Fiesta in its class. The Czech car maker has incorporated many exciting additions to the new Rapid Prestige, such as navigation system, wind visors, parking sensors and floor mats, in order to lure domestic buyers to its stores.

The newly launched Skoda Rapid Prestige limited edition model flaunts a special ‘Prestige’ badging on its sides, which makes it easily identifiable on the road. Coming to under-the-hood specifications, this mid-size sedan is powered by a 1.6 litre TDI diesel powertrain, which churns out a maximum power output of 105 bhp at 4,400 rpm, along with a highest torque delivery of 250 Nm at 1500 to 2500 rpm.

The Rapid Prestige also boasts of many high end trimmings like Multi-function information display, Skoda 2-DIN integrated audio player with an aux-in socket and SD/MMC data card reader, along with Climatronic system for automatic air conditioning and electronic regulation of cabin temperature. Other interesting additions include an adjustable dual rear air-conditioning vents, front passenger seat adjustment from rear seat, electrically adjustable external mirrors and remote controlled central door locking. Speaking of safety and security attributes, the Skoda Rapid Prestige trim comes equipped with the much fawned upon Anti-lock Braking System (ABS), along with driver and front passenger side airbags.
