The new Rapid AT’s launch announcement has come through Skoda Auto India’s social media channels just two weeks after bookings had begun on August 27 for a refundable deposit of Rs 25,000. Deliveries are slated to start from September 18, 2020.

The Rapid automatic will be equipped with the same 1.0-litre turbo-petrol engine as the manual version. At 110hp and 175Nm, power and torque figures will remain unchanged, but drive will be transmitted to the front wheels via a 6-speed torque-converter automatic gearbox.

Skoda has also revealed that the Rapid automatic’s ARAI-rated fuel efficiency is pegged at 16.24kpl. The same 1.0 TSI engine delivers a claimed 18.97kpl with the manual gearbox. For reference, the erstwhile BS4-compliant, 105hp, 1.6 MPI petrol mill was good for only 14.84kpl when allied to a 6-speed auto gearbox.
