The SKODA Rapid – the hatchback that is disguised as a saloon

The ŠKODA Rapid is the first car to truly embody ŠKODA’s new design language, characterised by clean lines and sharp angles. The stunning lines of the car allow light and darkness to interplay, creating a dynamism and timeless elegance.

At the same time, the Rapid remains very loyal to ŠKODA’s core values, offering outstanding space, fantastic value for money and a car which has been designed at every stage with the driver and passengers in mind.

The SKODA Rapid is an affordable family car with low running costs and generous practicality. The Rapid offers a huge boot, one of the biggest in its class, and with 548 litres you are surely not going to be short of space. The boot floor comes with carpet one side and rubber the other, so you have nothing to worry about when putting the muddy dog in the boot.

The SKODA Rapid is extremely functional and you have the option to have plenty of adjustment to the seats, making it suited to your comfort. With more head and leg room for passengers than most other family hatches the Rapid stands out from the rest.

The Rapid grips well to the road and the suspension copes well with uneven surfaces making the drive feel smoother and allowing those longer journeys to be more comfortable.

If you are looking for a new family car that is bigger than the Fabia and offers outstanding practicality then the Rapid could be the answer. Come and visit Capitol SKODA Newport to take advantage of our great offers on the SKODA Rapid.

Once you have found the perfect ŠKODA model from us, the next step is then deciding how you want to pay for it. We offer a variety of payment structures and finance products that all offer a different way to help you drive your perfect ŠKODA model. Below is a brief summary of the options available from Mon Motors ŠKODA.


The most simply and obvious method of paying for your new ŠKODA. If you are fortunate enough to have the full amount required to buy your car in savings, then this is probably going to be your payment method of choice. A single transaction that means the full agreed selling price is paid upfront and the car is then owned by you.

If you are like the vast majority of our customers and buying the car with one large cash transaction is not feasible, there are a number of other options available to help you drive away that new ŠKODA today.

Hire Purchase

A structured repayment plan with added interest that will allow you to own your car outright at the end of the agreed Hire Purchase term. This type of finance plan would require a deposit paid before you received your new car and then the outstanding balance of the agreed selling price can be settled over a series of monthly payments, over a time frame agreed between you and our team. You will own the car outright, once the final payment has been made.

PCP or PCH Car Leasing

If you are not overly concerned about owning the car outright and simply want to pay a manageable monthly amount to drive the car of your choice, then this may be the right option for you. Think of this more as a long-term rental. The two main types of leasing that we offer are Personal Contract Hire (PCH) and Personal Contract Purchase (PCP).

Typically, both of these finance options offer a lower up-front deposit and more affordable monthly payments than other funding methods available. Both of these types of leasing will also include a mileage restriction, which you will agree, prior to the start of your contract.

A PCP contract will give you the option to buy the car at the end of your leasing period outright with a one off final payment which will be considerably larger than those paid previously. This is often referred to as a 'balloon' payment. You will then own the car outright. Alternatively, you can review the value of your current car at the end of the contract and choose to start a new contract on a younger car.

A PCH contract does not give you the option to own the car outright and you would need to start a new agreement at the end of the initial contract, or choose a new method of funding a car that best suits your circumstances at that time.

Our team is on hand to talk through these options in more detail with you and help you make the decision about how you can best fund your new ŠKODA car from Capitol ŠKODA Newport.
