A good car at a much better price
Pros : Nice exteriors, good stylish and bold appearance, decent fuel efficiency, low turning radius and very easy to handle
Cons : Continuous series of same looks and unavailability of steering mounted controls
Skoda Rapid looks like an extended version of Fabia but a close inspection made me understand the vital differences between the two. Skoda for the long time keeping a close eye in our country’s hottest segment “the mid size sedan segment” and now they have something in bucket to rule the show. Rapid from the outside looks very similar to Fabia however after taking a close look. I came to understand the beauty and elegancy of the vehicle.
Front is beautifully designed and rear is a characteristic feature of all Skoda cars. 14 inch wheels provide good grip over the road and equips the bombshell to ride on almost all sort of surfaces. Vehicle looks classy and is a symbol of style, luxury, comfort and status. Rapid is priced between 7 to 10 lacs which make it a very hot option. I took test drive of this adoring vehicle recently and came out with complete satisfaction.
Interiors look like a five star hotel suite. Loaded with host of features some of them are unique. Upholstery used is among the finest ones and car is spacious in all spheres especially the rear with ample legroom, provides great comfort and car is fully loaded to give five passengers a complete luxurious feel. Engine is powered with 1598cc which generates 105 PS of power at 5250 rpm of torque. Acceleration is very agile and quick and ride handling is great and superb all the time. It’s a fantastic highway cruise and with mileage of 16kms per liter with diesel it is much easy on pocket too. A nice ride made to delight and excite customers who are bored of conventional names like Honda and Hyundai and wants to try something new.
