The Swing radio for the Rapid Spaceback offers an AM/FM tuner, SD card reader, Aux-In 3.5 mm jack, Bluetooth audio streaming and Apple-compatible USB. The infotainment system is controlled via a 5" colour LCD touchscreen with a resolution of 400x240 pixels. The advanced ŠKODA Surround audio system is an option for this radio.
The GPS system offers comfortable directions to the selected destination, thanks to quick calculation and precise presentation of the travel route. Amundsen navigation system is controlled via 6.5" colour LCD touchscreen with high resolution of 800x480 pixels. Optionally, the infotainment can be equipped with voice command.
Modern turbocharged engines with direct fuel injection – petrol TSI and diesel TDI units – deliver lower fuel consumption and emissions without forfeiting dynamic handling.Direct fuel injection turbocharged engines have a flat torque curve over a wide rpm range. The turbocharging gives them ample power at low rpm, i.e. the level at which the engine is running for most of the time. In the lower rpm range, the engine is also quieter and features lower fuel consumption and emissions.Direct fuel injection enhances the efficiency of fuel combustion and contributes to lower fuel consumption, thereby also lowering CO2 emissions. The alternative diesel engines are fitted with high-pressure common-rail injection. The diesel particulate filter also helps to reduce the amount of particles in the exhaust gasses.
The Rapid Spaceback was developed with environmental friendliness in mind. The low fuel consumption and emission figures hinge on the frugal petrol engines and the diesel units with their common-rail fuel injection and diesel particulate filter.The following factors contribute to lower emissions:
- Brake energy recovery- Use of a Start-Stop systemAll Rapid Spaceback engines comply with EU6 emission standards.
