One cannot take the eyes away from it. The first spy-shots from Czech Republic of Skoda Rapid Spaceback Scout really took us back. At the first stance, one needs to look over the car to know well it is proportionate to estate version. And to our excitement, the designers had done a commendable job to justify it fairly in every inch.
Scout as an off-road version of the standard models from Skoda, for example what Hyundai i20 Active is to i20 Elite and Etios Cross to Etios of Toyota, the Rapid estate in Scout trim is appropriately ready. The Czech-based carmaker almost seems up to the mark to make it available at an international auto show debut followed by the launch soon. The plastic cladding all-around, blackened headlamps & fog lamps, and blackened wheels are some cues that differentiate it from the standard version. Those amendments are mandatory for anyone to go with the Scout nameplate.
Thus, the show at Frankfurt 2015 will wow every buyer who just wants to add a fair bit of casualness to the estate with the raised ground clearance. A mix of petrol and diesel engines will trail this new model of Skoda.
Hence, it’s quite early to talk about the details. But one can expect more beans spilling out soon.
