Do better than the Rapid Spaceback
For memory, the Rapid Spaceback has never managed to establish itself on the market of compact sedan since its launch in 2013. It must be said that she had to do in the face of serious competitors : Ford Focus, Opel Astra, Seat Leon, Renault Megane and Volkswagen Golf to name but a few. With its new Spaceback (the name is not yet official), Skoda surely hopes to make up for the shooting with a product that is more modern (it is based on the same platform as the Golf), and with a style that is more assertive.
