    Škoda rival for MG5 in Britain by December!

    The new Škoda Rapid (fitting between the Fabia and the Octavia) looks very much like a rival to the MG5 size of car. However, while MG3, MG5 and MG6 are all now on sale in China, when Škoda launches the Rapid in the UK there will only be the larger, more-expensive petrol-only MG6 available (or, if it is later, the diesel version too).

    The Skoda Rapid is a brand new small family car from Skoda, sitting between the Fabia and Octavia in the range. However, it's much closer in size to the larger of those two cars; in fact, it's 30cm longer than our favourite small family car, the Volkswagen Golf.

    Despite that, though, the range is expected to cost from less than £13,000, and higher-specified models will undercut a similarly equipped Ford Focus or VW Golf by more than £3000.
