Default Skoda Rapid now comes with 4 airbags in Style trim

Does the latest model rapid comes with 4 airbags? I test drove a Rapid DSG 2 weeks back and it was having a tag over the front seats mentioning about air bags.

Yes, the newer Rapids are coming out with 4 airbags. However the Edition X or Monte Carlo may have only 2 airbags.

I had taken a test drive of the manual diesel rapid to end a few weeks back and it did come with 4 air bags.

Yes, 4 airbags are now being offered. Saw this in a newspaper ad a few days ago. Attaching the relevant image here (quality of the image isn't that great though).

Does Rapid comes with ESC/ESP and Hill Hold Assist as specified in the ad?

Yes the Top End DSG variant comes with ESP and Hill Hold Assist. Mine is July 2017 one with 4.4K kms on odo.
Car is good to drive and has enough grunt on highways once turbo kicks in. Can keep up with big cars on highway easily.

Rapid has been coming with 4 air bags, for a long time now. Atleast since the MY18 version was launched last year. My car which was manufactured in Aug 2017 and registered in Oct 2017, comes with 4 Air bags as well. But all the air bags are for the front occupants. There are no airbags protecting the rear seat occupants.
