Q. In 10 - 15 lakh budget which family car you will suggest in terms of safety, style and comfort. Should I buy petrol or diesel with good performance. Automatic is more preferable if economically it is good and advisable. - Rapid?
  • In this budget, Skoda Rapid is indeed a good car to buy as it offers solid built quality with good fit and finish. We would suggest you pick for its diesel version because Rapid diesel engine is punchy, fun to drive and frugal. Rare for a car to pull all three off. Moreover, its top-spec model gets projector headlamps, leather upholstery, automatic climate control, touchscreen audio system etc. In terms of safety, Rapid is available with dual front airbags and ABS with EBD as standard. The top-spec variant is equipped side airbags as well. The automatic variants of the Rapid come with electronic stability control (diesel only) and hill hold control. Its 7-speed DSG automatic paired with the diesel engine is quick and refined. Rarely skips a beat. Do take a test drive in order to judge your driving comfort.
  • If safety of family is of importance must go for any skoda vehicle. Depends on usage less that 500-800 per month go for petrol, if going long drives then diesel. still even if you buy diesel for short run no issues just price and maintenance is a bit on higher side but considering mileage with smooth DSG gearbox it's worth it. nice handling characteristics and spaciousness/ luxury is in genes of skoda vehicles.

Q. Should I buy Skoda Rapid, Hundai Venue, Ford EcoSport or Volkswagen Polo TSi petrol . shortlisted above car. Already know that I have short list from different segments but need your opinion.
  • The biggest bugbear for Skoda has been that despite its Germanic build and high-quality components, their reputation has suffered due to the high cost of maintenance. The Rapid is a feeling of premiumness and long-lasting solidity that is a cut above the rest. The diesel too is impressive and among the most involving-to-drive sedans in the market. The Rapid is a car worthy of your attention if you are in the market for an executive sedan and want good driving dynamics.If we talk about Venue, Hyundai has got the basics spot on with the Venue. It’s spacious enough for the urban family, it has a large boot, and it’s offering the right blend of features and quality. Both the engine options we sampled felt versatile enough to tackle the daily grind and weekend getaways with equal ease. There’s a polished dual-clutch automatic as well, that adds greatly to the Venue’s convenience quotient. At that price, it’s not just an SUV that ticks all the right boxes, it’s also phenomenal value for money.It’s among the only ones in its class that actually looks like a scaled-down SUV and not a blown-up hatchback. It offers great engines, good interiors with an appealing design and that very likeable SUVish stance. So, if you need a small SUV that has some swag, you know where to head.We would like to inform you that Volkswagen Polo GT TSI has been discontinued and no longer available in the new car market. It delivers great performance and technology which is light years ahead of it competition. This little hatchback is extremely lively to drive, is relaxing when you want it to and stays decent when you visit the petrol station. The spares are expensive and service quality perceived is not yet up to the mark. But it pains to see such a fantastic product suffer because of the after-sales issues.
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.
  • Not sure about Skoda but Honda City has decent service cost, mileage shall be in high 15's and it is very comfortable.

    I bought Skoda Rapid 1.6 MPI in May 2012 and it is still in an excellent condition. It is a very sturdy and reliable car. It's a joy to drive the car over long distances. It is a manual petrol version that I drive and can drive beyond 900 km in one tank filling on highways. The ride is slightly on the stiffer side but the car always feels firm on road at any speed. Steering gives just the right amount of feedback. Seats especially driver and co-driver's seats are good. Boot space is great and can carry a lot of luggage. Ideal for long distance trip with multiple destinations. Overall nothing to complain. This car is loved by my family. Can not ask for more from a car.

    7 Speed DSG gear box is one of the best in india very refined but noisy. but 0% noise is audible inside the cabin. Real thrill comes when I watch other cars vanishing in my rear view mirror fantastic car for racing. City 13kmpl in bumper to bumper highway 18kmpl. You should be a passionate of cars to own this DSG automatic. On a full tank of 55 liters in city driven for 525 kms but still I have half a tank left over.

    Great build quality.Awesome handling.Understated looks can divide opinion. Awesome Dsg gearbox. Negatives are space could have been better. Nvh levels are on higher side as compared to verna. Maintenance till know has been on par. Features on skoda rapid are really lacking over the competition verna and city both gives you sunroof. Skoda flaunts you with the superb DSG gearbox and tank like build quality.

    Skoda Rapid is a value for money car in it"s segment. Not on top in terms of mileage, but manages to score more on its power output and cornering capabilities at high speeds. Very comfortable and reliable car for long trips. I have driven it 1000+ kms in a single day with no breakdowns whatsoever.

  • 4.7

    Most powerful car in its segment. Very stable on mountain roads and excellent comfort. Only issue is ground clearance. Boot space is huge. Except for ground clearance, have no other issue with this car. Having owned it for now more than 7 years, cant be any happier!
