More or less all features Rapid has are available with Verna .If you have budget , Wish to enjoy pure European luxury and class , drive comfort . Choose Rapid . Choose Verna if prefer strong service network, overall low cost of ownership when compared to Skoda .Next gen venta a great styles and a mixed bag of excellent elections and design style .Diesel variant in Rapid is excellent where as all variants are a good choice in Verna . Looking to Economics and Verna is a better option which is a best over Rapid . Verna can be compared with Ciaz and City
  • The Skoda Rapid not only looks European but also feels European; and that's because it is European. The new face alone gives it an elegant vibe as it draws inspiration from pricier cars instead of looking like a hatchback (Fabia). The Rapid's tank-like build quality and mature driving dynamics are its strengths, while a thin service network and high maintenance costs keep potential customers at bay. on the other hand, the new Verna has matured, and how! It’s evolved into a classy package that drives well, packs in all the tech you need (and more) and priced reasonably as well. If you’re going to be driving solo most of the time or don’t really care about the folks at the rear - the Verna is a near no-brainer.

  • I own a skoda Rapid since 2012. Rapid is the sturdiest and most powerful sedan around. Even after 7 years, the turbo works like magic and I can leave every other car behind looking like a bullock cart on highway if I wanted to. Seriously, I Love Rapid. My next car is going to be Skoda Kamiq! But I dount if my Rapid will age enough ever! So, Go for it!

Q. Which is the better option in Rapid and Yaris?
  • As per your requirements best option here would be Toyota Yaris. Priced at Rs. 9.29 - 14.07 lakh Ex-showroom Price, Delhi. Yaris offers good luxurious interiors keeping in mind the safety and comfort with the features like roof-mounted air-conditioning system facilitating the rear passengers a lot more flexibility in directing the air compared to other floor-mounted air-con vents. The Yaris gets seven airbags as standard the seventh airbag is the driver’s knee airbag. The claimed ARAI mileage for the Toyota Yaris petrol is 17 kmpl.However, the resale value of the car completely depends upon the factors like make and model, how many kilometres it is driven and the car's physical condition. So exact figures cannot be defined here.
  • Petrol or diesel. if you are going with diesel , just test drive once Rapids buttersmooth gearbox and it's cornering abilities which Yaris lacks. u will love it. test drive both i suggest. Though Yaris is a practical car but lacks premium feel for that price. if petrol yaris is better choice and if diesel Rapid. I feel toyota doesn't feel that premium but as this one petrol gives paddle shift option which rapid doesn't have i think.
  • Yeah i agree.. But Yaris lacks with the extra thing which Rapid and City gives you while driving.. The pull or the THUMP kind of feel.. And I also felt body built is not so good.. Now i am stuck with city and rapid.. So which one do u suggest CITY/RAPID(PETROL)? Also yaris rear passengers head space is too low.. M 6 feet and head literally touches the top

Q. Hello, I am confused between Skoda Rapid and Volkswagen Vento, Petrol top end automatic. please suggest which is a better buy
  • Rapid and Vento both have the same VW engine. Both carry similar features, built quality and safety features. Rapid has an upper hand in terms of handling cornering and maneuvering at high speeds. In terms of external design, I rate Rapid far more better than Vento.

  • Skoda is cheaper, has better styling and better brand value in India... Go for rapid
