Used Skoda Rapid Spaceback 2013-present
Review continues below...

What alternatives should I consider to a used Skoda Rapid Spaceback hatchback?

If you want plenty of autonomous safety tech on your next car, have a look at the Nissan Pulsar. Most models come with some form of emergency braking, which helps to lower insurance costs.

Thanks to the sheer ubiquity of the Vauxhall Astra, you'll easily find a well-specified version for similar money to the Rapid Spaceback. It rides well and provides predictable if slightly dull handling.

For those who like the idea of having some manufacturer warranty left on their used car, the Hyundai i30 is worth a look. It’s well equipped and has a pleasantly finished interior.
