Skoda Rapid New Cars - User Reviews
I am using this car for around 7-8 months. there was some minor issues and I went to service center, but after sale service is not good as the car. Interior is somewhat oldish and the quality of interior is not up to the mark of this class. anyway it is spacious inside for even 5 people. driving control is average. it has all the features of a premium car but not up to the mark.
The Skoda Rapid is basically a rebadged Volkswagen Vento with an identical platform, external dimensions and several other features. Skoda has put in considerable work into the car, gave it minor tweaks here and there and created a good overall product. The Skoda Rapid is an elegant looking car with spacious interiors, impressive handling and ride quality and is fuel efficient as well. Currently, the best cars in the C segment.
A WELL PRICED CAR FROM SKODA. THE DIESEL ENGINE HAS ALMOST NO TURBO LAG WHICH MAKES IT A BLAST TO DRIVE. THE SLIGHTLY STIFF RIDE MAKES IT VERY STABLE AT HIGH SPEEDS THOUGH THIS COMPROMISES RIDE QUALITY ON BAD ROADS. INTERIORS ARE NICE AND FUNCTIONAL. GEARBOX AND BRAKES ARE PRECISE AND CONFIDENCE INSPIREING. STEERING IS LIGHT AT LOW SPEED AND GIVES GOOD FEEDBACK AT HIGHER SPEEDS. CABIN IS ROOMY. FUEL EFFICENCY IS ALSO AMOUNG THE BEST.
