In order to achieve the new BS 6 compliance, the company has updated the Rapid with a whole new engine. While earlier it used a 1.6-litre naturally aspirated petrol as well as a 1.5-litre turbocharged diesel engine, it now runs on a 1.0-litre TSI turbocharged three-cylinder petrol unit. For the uninitiated, this new unit comes from the EA 211 engine family. It is known to develop 110 PS of maximum power and a peak torque of 175 Nm. The engine comes mated to a 6-speed manual transmission. The company will also introduce 6-speed automatic transmission option later. As in the recently introduced BS 6 Vento and Polo, the 7-speed DSG dual-clutch automatic transmission will also be removed from the Skoda Rapid.
