With the new 7-speed dual clutch gearbox, the Rapid has the potential to be a gamechanger in the C-segment, especially in big cities where it should now be a popular choice

Skoda Rapid Highlights
You can choose between a 1.5-litre diesel engine and a 1.6-litre petrol motor. Let’s go through this one engine at a time. The diesel motor is a four-cylinder unit that makes 110PS of power and 250Nm of torque. You can opt for a slick-shifting 5-speed manual, or a super-quick 7-speed DSG with this engine. The 1.6-litre petrol engine makes 105PS of power, and 153Nm of torque. You get the option of 6-speed automatic besides the 5-speed manual, but this is a conventional torque converter and not a DSG.
Exterior and Interior
Skoda’s ageing sedan got a fresh shot of botox in late 2016. The design is now in-line with the Czech automaker’s global lineup, courtesy the larger ‘butterfly’ grille and the smoked out projector headlamps. Changes to the profile and the rear are next to none, save for a new set of 16-inch alloy wheels, a reworked bumper and revised detailing for the taillamp. The redesign doesn’t do much to hide the age of the sedan, but there’s no denying it’s classy. We have to give a special mention to the rock-solid build quality; the Rapid feels like it’s built to last.
The design of the cabin remains unchanged with the update. The colour scheme, though, has been updated to beige and black, which does make it look a lot livelier. The equipment list features the usual suspects - automatic climate control, a 6.5-inch touchscreen, cruise control and rear AC vents. The show-off features such as a sunroof, ventilated seats et al are missing from the list though. Skoda has also silently updated the feature list of the Rapid, replacing dual airbags with four. This, in our books, is a very good move!
The Rapid can be had in three variants - Active, Ambition, and Style. There’s an Edition accessory pack as well, that adds black accents and black upholstery apart from an all-black dash. All engine-gearbox options are available in all variants, save for the diesel-automatic that can be had in the top-spec Style variant only. If it’s value for money you’re looking for, pick the Ambition variant - it’s the best blend of flash and functionality.
Honda City: 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. Looking for a big car experience? Dial H for Honda.
Hyundai Verna: Looks suave, is loaded with features you didn’t know of, and most importantly - doesn’t ride like it’s got pogo sticks for wheels. If you can make peace with the limited room at the rear, the current generation is the best Verna ever!
Volkswagen Vento: It’s ageing, but it’s far from being dated. If you’re keen on driving (fast) yourself, the dual-clutch transmission on the Vento will be a more-than-willing partner in crime. It’s got a stiff ride, but the basics of space, practicality and ergonomics have been nailed to the T.
Maruti Ciaz: There’s nothing that makes you go ‘wow’, but it doesn’t let you whine either. Yes, it’s a bit boring to drive and it could do with some more features. But, if you need a no-nonsense car to be chauffeured around in without burning a hole in your pocket, the Ciaz should be in your garage.
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 could do with some more features, but that build quality does make up for a lot!
