Skoda Auto India has today launched a limited edition version of the Rapid saloon called the Rapid Prestige. The new limited edition Skoda comes with features like parking sensors, wind visors, textile floor mats and navigation system. It will also sport the Prestige badge. The Skoda Rapid Prestige is on-sale with a price tag of Rs 8.99 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi).
Skoda will be offering the Prestige for a limited time and will be available only in the diesel version. The 1.6 TDI engine churns out the maximum power output of 104bhp @4400rpm along with the peak torque of [email protected]–2500rpm. A 5-speed manual transmission does the cog shifting duty.
The company has been trying hard to keep the sales going at a time when the market is not in a very good shape. A few days back Skoda India came up with an attractive finance scheme, according to which a customer can buy a Rapid and pay the EMI a year after the purchase. As a result of the new campaign, consumers can now avail a premium sedan without worrying about paying the EMI in the first year. The balance amount can be paid through unique repayment options thereafter.
