Skoda Ireland has revealed its new product and customer incentives as part of its 181 sales event, which is being rolled out at dealers nationwide from now until the end of the month.

The event will see two new model versions being unveiled at showrooms across the country, for the Skoda Rapid and the Citigo.


The Skoda Rapid has got a fresh new face and a host of new equipment including LED daytime driving lights, modern touchscreen sound systems and stylish interiors. The most impressive aspect of the new Rapid is a brand new 1.0 TSI 95bhp petrol engine which delivers diesel-rivalling fuel consumption of just 4.5 litres per 100km and annual road tax from €190. Prices start from €19,150 and for the duration of the Sales Event.


Skoda is offering 0% Finance on all new Rapids. The second model on display during the Event is the popular Citigo, which has undergone a facelift. Already a family favourite, 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 0% PCP Finance offered on the Fabia, Octavia and Superb. The Scrappage EcoGrant continues to be available until December 31, offering customers up to €3,750 on older EU1-EU4 siesel engine vehicles, which is mostly made up of diesel cars registered before 2011. This offer is available in combination with the extremely competitive PCP finance rate of up to 1.9%.

Speaking about the Skoda Sales Event, Ray Leddy, Head of Marketing at Skoda Ireland, said: “Despite some challenges in the wider economy we again expect strong demand for new cars in 2018. Škoda is perfectly positioned with our range of spacious and well-equipped vehicles. 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 0% Finance, over half of all Skodas sold are now purchased through Škoda Finance. The new Rapid and Citigo have arrived just in time for this Sales Event, while the brand new Skoda Karoq will arrive in showrooms on December 1. Customers interested in the Karoq can now talk to their local dealer about specifications and ordering information in advance of the launch in December.”
