Skoda Rapid to launch on 16th November, to be priced at 7 lakh

The anticipated entry level sedan from the Skoda den; Rapid, will be launched on 16th of this month. The compact sedan Skoda Rapid which is developed by the company keeping in mind the Indian driving conditions will strengthen the C segment of the auto market. It is also expected that the sedan will prove to be a value for money vehicle as far as the price bracket is concerned that will fall below of Volkswagen Vento.

The car is majorly based on parent company Volkswagen’s Vento sedan, apart from the front-view of headlamps which resembles hatchback Skoda Fabia. It seems that most of the automakers are in favor of rebadged vehicles and do not hesitate in sharing their platforms either. The best example came-in in the form of an upgraded version of Nissan Micra in the form of Renault Pulse launched some days back.

The Skoda Rapid is manufactured at Chakan plant based in Pune, it is the same unit where Volkswagen Vento is produced. Hence, the probability of sharing some interior gears and other equipments of Vento cannot be ruled out.

The compact sedan that carries a premium stroke of Skoda is expected to position itself under Volkswagen Vento and above Nissan Sunny in terms of price bracket; that means it may fall anywhere between Rs 6 Lakhs to Rs 8 Lakhs. The Czech based company has taken care of Indian consumers by offering their sedan in two engine choices; petrol and diesel.

The 1.6L petrol run power-train is capable to generate 105 bhp of maximum power along with peak torque of 160 Nm. On the other hand, the diesel run engine with a displacement of 1.5L has the ability to pull out 105 bhp of utmost power and a peak torque of 250 Nm. Both the variants will wear a five speed manual transmission as standard. The auto gear box will be seen in the petrol variants, but unsure about the diesel version sporting the same.
