This is the angle which IMO, reminds a lot about the Ciaz. Correct me if I'm wrong.

And unfortunately yes, India is still far from getting the best of the automotive world.

You've got quite an eagle eye, sir! That seems spot on. All in all, the car doesn't look very inspiring to me, from the rear. But since we're not even going to see one of these in flesh here, I shouldn't be too hot and bothered about it.

Q2 2021 and Q4 2021 is way too late. There will be better options by then.

2 - Transmission details are still under wraps but it might feature a 6/7 speed DSG.
3 - The next generation Rapid will debut in India in 2021.

Updated Skoda Rapid for Russia : configurations and reduced prices!

Quote:
Rapid has acquired a redesigned front end and aft, as well as a new interior. But the technique has remained the same - it is an aspirated 1.6 MPI (90 or 110 hp) paired with a “mechanics” or a six-speed “automatic” Aisin, as well as a 1.4 TSI turbo engine (125 hp) with a seven-speed DSG

Could this be the reason for “rider” variant on the current 1.0 TSI Rapid? Also, the new “ANB” sedan to come with a DSG the rumour says? If that is indeed true, buying the current Rapid seems not so worthy IMO. Time will tell.

Someone asked Zac on twitter on exact month of Rapid 2021, and see his reply.

The VW/Skoda group should bring their 1.6 diesel engine also. There are only the Asian sedans that have diesel engines here. Those who want diesels and the Germans/Europeans are not able to find one around, either in sedans or in mid-size crossovers. What a bad state of things!

So, this also must come right at the end of the next year.

Skoda Slavia Title Trademarked, likely for the Upcoming Rapid Successor

More about the name - ŠKODA SLAVIA

Quote:
The seventh ŠKODA Student Concept Car, designed by 31 students attending the renowned ŠKODA vocational school, links the past with the present: the uncompromisingly open-top ŠKODA SLAVIA pays homage to this year’s ŠKODA AUTO anniversary by commemorating the name of the first bicycles produced by Václav Laurin and Václav Klement after they founded the company in 1895

2nd best name for a car ever ( the king shall always remain another Skoda - 17 lakhs ka).

The salaried class ( corporate slaves) would feel deeply connected to it.

CEOs could give it as part of CTCs/ bonuses to their favorite slaves.

Others could feel they got themselves a supermodel from Czechoslovakia.

Slavia? Really? This name is possible only from a company that has 0.00% English speaking employees. Even as 3rd language. I hope this is just a trademark registration that doesn't actually get used. Even with that, why would anyone want to use something so politically incorrect I wonder.

This is a company that launched a car called Laura in India. The connotations around buying, repairing, showing off and selling the car, especially in North India, were interesting to say the least.

Ok so I might be wrong about this, but this mule is sized very much like the VW Virtus. Is this the new Skoda? Extremely sorry for the bad image quality, spotted in Pune.

To be honest I mistook it for the Octavia before, but then it is deceptively smaller. The front is a bit different than the sharper and sleeker new Octavia. But, from the rear it is very difficult to differentiate. Lights are similar, similar notchback design, hence I thought it’s the Skoda Virtus twin, as we already know the Virtus is already sized like the previous gen Jetta, I think this is the new Skoda Whatever they call it.
