Skoda Rapid Rider Plus launched at Rs 7.99 lakh

Skoda Auto India on Wednesday launched Rapid Rider Plus variant of the sedan at an introductory price of Rs 7.99 lakh (ex showroom, pan India).

The variant is an addition to the available options of the Rapid TSI which was launched on May 26 at a starting price point of Rs 7.49 lakh (ex showroom).

Skoda is hoping that the the Raider Plus variant builds on that success courtesy its dominant black and silver design elements highlighted by the black facade of the signature grille up front.

The variant gets decorative side foils, glossy black decor on the B pillars, trunk lip garnish and new window chrome garnish.

On the inside, Rapid Raider Plus variant gets a new dual-tone ebony sand colour theme with ivory slate upholstery. There is also a stainless steel scuff plate with 'Rapid' inscription. Desk: Asianet Online
