Škoda Rapid: preview sketches

Car designer Marek Piano Kedzierski has created a set of sketches that give a possible preview of the new Škoda C-segment model, set to debut at the Paris Show and expected to offer a range of different body versions.


Skoda Rapid Wagon Concept Design SketchFilling the gap between the Fabia and Octavia, the new model – whose actual name is still uncertain – will compete with sedans like the Renault Fluence, and will be the first model fully developed under the direction of Slovakian chief designer Jozef Kabaň.

As AutoDesign&Styling magazine reports, “according to Škoda representatives, the five-door liftback will not be the only body version.”

Skoda Rapid Coupe Concept Design Sketches Designer Marek Piano Kedzierski has based his sketches on the styling of the recent MissionL Concept, removing the most concept-like elements, such as the stretched fenders, recessed handles and LED lights, and imagining a wagon model – in combi and sportback variants – and a two-door sporty version inspired by the Škoda Rapid from the eighties – an interesting variant, yet more unlikely to reach production.

“The ‘big roomy car characterised by emotion and an affordable price tag’ is to probably be somewhere between a hatchback (as was for example the VisionD concept) and a sports wagon, as suggested for idnes.cz by member of the board and chief of technical development, Eckhard Scholz, about a prepared body variant.”
