The Skoda Rapid Matte Edition, which is available in both manual and automatic transmission, has a distinct paint scheme and additional features over the standard model.
To begin, the new Carbon Steel matte shade improves the Rapid’s overall visual appeal by making the sedan appear meaner and sportier. The gloss black accents on the front grille, door handles, and front and rear spoilers complement the matte finish. The side body moulding, as well as the rear diffuser, are finished in black, adding to the Rapid’s sinister appearance. The 16-inch alloy wheels are also painted black.
