    Recently Asked User Questions

    Q. Hi I am planning to buy a petrol sedan and i have shortlisted Skoda rapid and Honda city. can you suggest which one is better in terms of service cost, mileage,& comfort.
    • There’s not much to dislike about the Skoda sedan. With the facelift, it looks as premium as ever, and packs in more tech. If you feel the Vento is a bit out of reach, pick the Rapid. It’s practically the same package delivered with a smaller pinch to the wallet. Yes, it’s a tad bit old and it could do with some more features - but that build quality does make up for a lot! On the other hand, the City continues to be the most desirable sedan in this lot. It’s got the looks, the tech and more importantly - that oh-so-illustrious ‘H’ badge on the grille. It’s fun to drive, and has enough space to shame cars from a segment above. Moreover, we would suggest you to take a test drive in order to clear your all doubts.

    • See driving pleasure...nothing can beat VW/Skoda...but it is low on space, ineffective A/C, and wallet shattering shattering maintenance costs. Honda city on other hand is generous in space, very good a/c very affordable maintenance and it is also very powerful to drive . If driving pleasure is your only concern go for skoda, otherwise Honda city....I will advise you to go and check both the cars in person and then decide.
    • Bro in 2020 the best choice is Skoda rapid no doubt .city is thin like a paper but rapid build quality is like a tank .one word Skoda rapid is solid car and best choice

    Q. Which has got good resale value between Skoda Rapid and Honda City?
    • Honda City has a good resale value. Skoda Rapid being a good car has low resale value due to its high maintenance cost and not easily serviceable outside Skoda Service centers. Also the spares of Skoda are bit expensive.
    • Honda City is topmost choice in sedan second hand market. Honda engines are good. Toyota and Hyundai are also good but unable to beat city.
    • Especially Honda City

    Q. I am lill confused between Honda City SV MT and Skoda Rapid, please suggest with justification.
    • In 2020 Skoda rapid is the best choice . quality wise city is far away from rapid , rapid's build quality is strong like a tank.skoda only issue was service, now company focusing on service centers all over India and now tsi engine gives 18km/l mileage. Skoda has 6 year warranty too+ 4 year service free.ln my opinion choosing a German engineering with above said advantages is intelligent decision 2020
    • I will suggest city because it is fun to drive, spacious, better mileage, big boot space, excellent A/C (mind it rapid and vento's a/c performance is very bad), economical to maintain 1/3 rd of volkswagen and skoda..Regards
    • Choose city1 Honda - Reliable and easy to maintain, service centre can be found within 10 km diameter.2 Spare parts cost cheaper than skoda rapid3 better overall package, the space inside is far more superior than rapid.
