Thanks to the decent features list and attractive pricing, the Rapid Rider became an instant hit and garnered the maximum number of bookings in variant wise selection. Skoda was also forced to halt the bookings for some time in order to meet the market demand.

Based on the customer feedback, Skoda introduced the Rider Plus trim which featured a touchscreen infotainment system along with exterior body decals costing an additional 50,000.

Skoda may also introduce the new-gen Rapid by the end-2021.
