A classy reasonably priced sedan

Pros : Great looks, decent fuel efficiency, very easy to drive and amply spacious interiors

Cons : Too similar to Vento and rear viewing is not that easy and causes problems while parking

I have purchased an all new astonishing Skoda sedan “Rapid” and am very excited from the day of purchase. It looks so beautiful that I am not able to keep my eyes away. I have been waiting for quite a long time for a classy luxurious sedan at a much better price and was bored off Honda, Hyundai or Ford and finally I got what I was looking forward too in a form of an adoring mind boggling bombshell Rapid. Car took my heart at the very first glance, smooth finish and amazing looks won my heart and I thought of taking a test drive to explore my queen.

Exteriors from all sides is simply an adept artistic work however they look very similar to Vento but it’s not true if you take a close watch you would find it very different and more appealing for sure. Tyres are much broad and grip the road like a chameleon. Suspension is soft and fluffy like a baby cushion. After sales and maintenance worries will be borne by the company and rider just need to ride the way they want.

Engine is pretty powerful equipped with 1598cc displacement that generates whooping 105 PS of power that’s too much if you want to ride at an exorbitant speed of 170 or 180. Car remains very much under control all the time and handling at high speeds is very easy. A small flick on steering turns the car to 90 degrees. Gear box is like butter with a stick and interiors are like a 7 star luxurious suite all equipped to give a world class experience at a much affordable price.

Hi, I bought the Skoda Radip Ambition Diesel a couple of months back and have done only 2006 Kms as on date. I am very happy with its ride quality, handling and especially the powerful engine but the ground clearance of the car is so dissappointing that even with just one person sitting at the back the rear touches the ground and with a thud sound even on a small speed breakers. I even changed the stock 14" steel rims and 175/60/R15 Apollo Accelere Tyres with 15" alloys( G SPORT) and 195/60/R15, YOKOHOMA V550 Decibel , 100 PCD. Please let me know if this is a manufacturing defect or Rapids ground clearance is pathetic? I have registered a complaint thru SKODA Assistance and they raised it to the Dealer here in Bangalaore, VINAYAK SKODA who called up but didnt no what to do? This is really dissappointing.I want some immediate assistance in this regard post which I will decide to continue with this vehicle or dispose it off and buy a new Renault Duster.
