The Škoda Rapid Spaceback is a five-door hatchback modelled on the Škoda Rapid. It was unveiled in 2013 as one of the company’s mid-range models and sat above the Škoda Fabia but below the Škoda Octavia. It is known for its practicality and good value, making it an excellent choice of car for families and those looking for an efficient drive.

Owing to its all-round appeal, the Škoda Rapid Spaceback is a competitor to other practical models, like the Ford Focus, Hyundai i30 and the Kia Ceed. Reflecting its quality design and manufacturing, the Škoda Rapid Spaceback won the prestigious Red Dot award in 2014.

Škoda Rapid Spaceback updates and facelifts

The Škoda Rapid Spaceback was unveiled in 2013 and was inspired by the Škoda Rapid. The primary difference between the two models was slightly altered body styling. This made the Škoda Rapid Spaceback closer in design to a saloon. Compared to the original model, the Spaceback also offers more cabin space. Other similarities between the two models are the engine range and cabin technology.

A facelift in 2017 introduced more changes to the model. This facelift added subtle tweaks to the front lights and bumpers. It also revised the available engines on the Spaceback. The 1.2-litre TSI petrol option was replaced by a 1.0-litre unit which was available in two power outputs. The Škoda Rapid Spaceback remained in production until 2019 when it was discontinued.

Practicality and style of the car

The Škoda Rapid Spaceback’s dimensions make it one of the more compact models in its class at 4,304mm long, 1,459mm high and 1,706mm wide. The Škoda Rapid Spaceback offers ample cabin space meaning passengers travel in comfort.

It also offers plenty when it comes to boot space, with a standard space of 415 litres with all seats up. This is a noticeable improvement on the Ford Focus hatchback’s 375 litres and the Volkswagen Golf hatchback’s 381 litres. Fold all seats down and this space grows to 1,381 litres. This outperforms the Volkswagen Golf's 1,237 litres and the Ford Focus' 1,320 litres. The boot is a boxy shape and comes with a low lip which is helpful for loading and stowing large items.

Depending on the engine it comes with, the model can also tow a maximum braked capacity of up to 1,200kg. This is enough for a range of small to medium-sized trailers.

Running costs

The Škoda Rapid Spaceback offers reasonable running costs. Its insurance group falls between 11 and 18. This is similar to the Ford Focus hatchback which has a range between 8 and 21. It also comes with an average annual road tax rate of up to £180. Low emission engines like the GreenTech qualify for much lower tax rates of around £20 and £35.

Features you can expect in a used Škoda Rapid Spaceback


Step into the cabin of a Škoda Rapid Spaceback and you’ll find a sturdy and well-designed interior. You’ll find tactile plastics on many of the surfaces. The model has a logical layout and plenty of surround visibility thanks to narrow rear door pillars and quarterlight windows.

In the driving seat, there’s supportive fabric upholstery to keep you comfortable on long journeys. There’s also a multifunctional steering wheel. A well-organised cluster of buttons helps you quickly engage the Spaceback’s settings and functions. For welcome styling, you’ll find silver chrome strips on the wheel, dashboard and centre console.

In the rear there is a reasonable amount of space for four adults. Keeping the cabin clutter-free is easy thanks to four door bins and a glovebox. There are also handy storage slots in the centre console for keeping small items.


On the centre console, you’ll find a 6.5-inch infotainment touchscreen. This supports Android Auto, Apple CarPlay and Bluetooth connectivity. In entry-level trims in the pre-2017 facelift, the Škoda Rapid Spaceback comes with a CD player and DAB radio system. The 6.5-inch touchscreen comes with full colour display.
