Is Skoda Rapid Monte Carlo's touchscreen a dealer fitment?

According to a YouTube video, the new Android headunit in the Skoda Rapid Style and Monte Carlo is installed at the dealer end.

It seems that Skoda ships the cars to dealers with the older-gen touchscreen units, and they are swapped with the new ones at the dealership. It is also reported that apart from the head unit, the seat covers, door sills and the rear spoiler are also installed at the dealership.

The Rapid Monte Carlo was first launched back in August 2017 and was later renamed as Edition X due to a trademark dispute. It was again sold under the Monte Carlo badge after a resolution. The car comes with black roof, ORVMs, tailgate spoiler and rear diffuser. It also gets projector head lights and dual tone Clubber alloy wheels.

The Rapid is available with a 1.0-litre, turbocharged petrol engine producing 108 BHP and 175 Nm. The car is offered with a 6-speed manual transmission.
