The Rapid is a hatchback that offers affordable style and practicality. This roomy family vehicle comes with cost-effective engine options, provides exceptional boot capacity and is available in S, SE, Rapid Sport and SE L trim levels.
The smart-looking Rapid boasts a chrome-trimmed radiator grille and body-coloured fixtures such as door handles and door mirrors, the latter of which are power-adjustable and heated. The Rapid is adorned with a Pacific Blue paint scheme, which comes as standard. Optional colours include Candy White, Black Magic, Corrida Red and Race Blue. Standard lighting includes height-adjustable headlamps, daytime running lights and a high-mounted brake light.
For 15-inch alloy wheels, tinted glass, front fog lamps and more, why not upgrade to the Rapid SE?
Exceptionally spacious, even for rear-row passengers, the Rapid also provides the driver with a height-adjustable position and a rake-and-reach-adjustable steering wheel. Other standard features include power-assisted steering, power-operated front windows, a heated rear windscreen and 60/40 split-folding rear seats. A class-leading 550-litre boot can be expanded to 1,400 litres with rear seats folded.
A three-spoke leather steering wheel comes with SE trims, as does cruise control, air-conditioning and electric rear windows.
A 1.4-litre 89bhp petrol engine is fitted as standard, delivering up to 60.1mpg and a 107g/km CO2 emission figure. An extremely fuel-efficient 1.6-litre 113bhp diesel unit is available as an option for S grades. This returns as much as 74.3mpg and CO2 emissions as low as 99g/km. Stop/Start system is included as standard with all grades.
A four-speaker sound system (including an AM/FM radio) provides in-car entertainment, and a 6.5-inch colour display screen, and USB and SD ports are featured as standard too.
SE trims add two more loudspeakers and Bluetooth connectivity.
The Rapid comes with Euro NCAP’s five star rating, and driver aids include Electronic Stability Control, Anti-lock Braking System and Tyre Pressure Monitoring System. Passive safety elements such as three-point rear seatbelts, a driver seatbelt warning light, multiple airbags, ISOFIX fixtures and child-proof locks are also featured.
