A wow car to look at
Pros : Good beautiful looking exteriors, nice fuel efficiency, reasonably priced, very low turning radius, high ground clearance and is a very easy to drive vehicle (most of them are as per dealer
Cons : Audio controls on steering are missing; engine’s noise and gear box is stiff and hard to operate
Finally Skoda has come up with a car which is driving the nerves of all of those who are waiting for Skoda’s Rapid for quite a long time, wait is over and the much anticipated expectations are all met. It looks like Skoda is now gearing up and improving their market reading techniques and surely has come up with an awesome car in a very competitive price. At first glance its alluring beauty took all my attention and excited me a lot. I went to the nearest dealer but it’s not available for test drive and soon I would be able to explore what Skoda has got this time.
I have seen Rapid’s US version and it looks extremely stylish and wonderful and we have the same in India too. Nice looking exteriors breaking the long and the continuous series of similar features and it looks more like a refreshing taste of modern engineering. Skoda’s Octavia, Superb and Fabia all have proved their mettle in their respective segments and I am expecting Rapid will be a big hit in its segment too, which comprises of legends like Honda and Hyundai.
Interiors are very spacious and refreshing especially the frontal side is amply spacious and the rear side takes the comfort level to an all new level. Boot is spacious too. As per dealer it’s a very powerful and agile vehicle and offers good fuel efficiency too. Dealer will call me by the time car will be available for a test drive, I just want to check out the drivability of the vehicle and am very satisfied with the looks and interiors.
