Default Re: Skoda Mission L Concept Revealed - The next Laura?

A bit of an old thread, but thought this is the best place to put up this info:

Saw this piece on the Skoda website. The new compact saloon from Skoda (to bridge gap between the Fabia and Octavia) will be called the Rapid.
SKODA - New SKODA compact saloon to be called Rapid

This is interesting because the Global Rapid based on the MissionL is for Europe and China, where as we have an India specific rebadged Vento. Not so much of a good news for our market.

Seriously now. Why is Skoda confusing the daylights out of us !
The European Rapid is based on the Mission L and will feature a hatch feature like the Octavia and Laura. So its safe to assume that the Euro Rapid is not based on the Vento. The next gen Octavia will be called the Octavia in India and not the Laura as announced by Skoda India. The next gen Octavia is due to be out this year but with the Rapid being based on the Mission L car shown all over the world, What will the Octavia look like? Also with the talk about a car based on the Mission L Concept to be launched between the Fabia and Octavia, there now seems to be no information about the new Octavia which most of us felt was going to be based on the Mission L car.

Also what was that Vision D concept that SKODA had showcased at some Auto Show? Is that car different from the Vision D concept.

The car based on Mission L concept is European Rapid, an entirely new car built from scratch, to be positioned below Octavia. Please continue the discussion here: http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/intern...d-spotted.html
