Skoda Ireland tells us that their new product and customer incentives are part of their 181 sales event, which is being rolled out from now until 31st October. The event will see two new model versions being unveiled at showrooms across the country, the Rapid and the Citigo.
It says that the new Rapid has got a fresh new face and new equipment including LED daytime driving lights, modern touchscreen sound systems and stylish interiors. It adds that the most impressive aspect of the new Rapid is a brand new 1.0 TSI 95bhp petrol engine which it claims will deliver diesel-rivalling fuel consumption of just 4.5 litres per 100km (or 63 mpg ) and annual road tax from €190.
Prices start from €19,150 and for the duration of their sales event, Skoda says that it is offering zero per cent finance on all new Rapids.
The second model on display during their event is their Citigo minicar, which has undergone a facelift. The Citigo receives a fresh new look including body paint colours, wheels and connectivity technology. Prices have remained unchanged, starting from €11,550 for 5 door versions.
Skoda has also announced other incentives and offers across the range with zero per cent PCP Finance offered on Fabia, Octavia and Superb. Their ‘Scrappage EcoGrant’ continues to be available until the 31st. of December, offering customers up to €3,750 on older EU1-EU4 diesel engine vehicles, which is mostly made up of diesel cars registered before 2011. TIt says that his offer is available in combination with a very competitive PCP finance rate of up to 1.9 per cent.
Speaking about the ŠKODA Sales Event, Ray Leddy, Head of Marketing at ŠKODA Ireland, told us: “We continue to see huge demand for our Kodiaq 7-seat SUV and we would therefore advise customers to place their orders early to avoid disappointment. Thanks to zero per cent finance, over half of all Skoda’s sold are now purchased through Skoda Finance. The new Rapid and Citigo have arrived just in time for this sales event, while the brand new Karoq will arrive in showrooms on the 1st. of December.”
