Skoda Rapid Highlights

Overview

A very reliable and more importantly affordable, the Rapid is the Skoda’s bet against the likes of Honda City, Maruti Ciaz, Hyundai Verna and its own cousin VW Vento. Skoda has got spot-on with the styling and the clean lines add the air of sophistication to Rapid’s design. Rapid’s cabin oozes quality and upmarket feel and the choice of material subscribes to the luxurious standards. Surprisingly, the cabin is spacious enough to accommodate the three adults abreast at the back and the trunk is equally accommodating. Power flows to the front wheels of Rapid via either a 5-speed manual transmission or a 7-speed DSG and the engine options include 105PS/153Nm, 1.6-liter petrol and 110PS/250Nm, 1.5-liter diesel motor. The Skoda Rapid is retailed in India in the price range of Rs 8.49-13.77 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi) and currently acting as the starting, base line model in Skoda’s stable.

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!

Specifications

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.

Variants

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.

Competitors

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.

ZigSays

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!
