Skoda Adds Rapid Spaceback And Yeti To Motability SchemeThu, 13 Feb 2014
THE WAIT is over and Czech car maker Skoda has added its two newest models to the Motability Scheme.
Both the all-new Rapid Spaceback and the facelifted Yeti crossover are accessible through the programme to individuals receiving the Higher Rate Mobility Component of the Disability Living Allowance.
Key to the cars appeal will be the high levels of practicality and interior space available from both models, coupled with a nil Advance Payment on selected variants.
Providing ample room for the storage of luggage and mobility equipment, the five-door Rapid Spaceback hatch features a spacious boot, which extends to 1,380 litres when the back seats are folded. Occupants also benefit from class-leading headroom and rear legroom.
The Yeti offers a high driving position, good all-round visibility in addition to a large interior and boot which can be expanded to 1,580 litres by folding the rear seats. Buyers can select either a manual or automated DSG gearbox.
Commenting on the cars, Andy Thomas, Sales Operations - Rental and Motability Manager at Skoda UK, said: "The addition of the new Rapid Spaceback and updated Yeti to the Scheme further reinforces our practical and affordable offering for Motability customers.
“Our full model range provides all-important space, versatility and an abundance of technology, designed to provide an enjoyable and comfortable experience for drivers and passengers.
"Furthermore, each of our 134 retailers in the UK is accredited and trained to accommodate Motability drivers and any vehicle adaptation requests they may have."
