Skoda has prepared two special editions of its Rapid budget sedan for the UK market.

Skoda has prepared two special editions of its Rapid budget sedan for the UK market.

First up is the Rapid SE Connect which adds 3,665 GBP worth of goodies such as rear parking sensors, 16-inch Antia alloys and an Amundsen satellite navigation system with support for DAB radio. It can be had with either a Denim Blue or a Brilliant Silver paint, with power coming exclusively from a 1.2-liter TSI delivering 86 HP (63 kW).

Skoda plans to make only 800 units of the Rapid SE Connect which is priced at 12,990 GBP on the road.

Next is the Rapid Sport which unfortunately doesn't have anything in common with the attractive Rapid Sport concept shown at last year's Wörthersee. It's simply a special edition adding equipment worth 1,250 GBP like 17-inch Ray black alloy wheels, front fog lights, sunset glass, steel pedals, sports seats, rear spoiler and black mirrors. It will be available only in Candy White with a 1.2-liter TSI producing 105 HP (77 kW).

The Rapid Sport costs 15,630 GBP and will be limited to 200 units.
