  • Downside

    Loud diesel engine. Repair costs high. Service network.

Q. I have Skoda Rapid Active base model. Can I get automatic climate control instslled in my bsse variant beause it doesn't look good.
  • I don't think retrofitment of automatic climate control is usually done in base variant.
Q. Is this a right time to buy Skoda Rapid diesel transmission?
  • As the Skoda Rapid diesel is a BS4 compliant car, it could be bought, if you are looking for vehicles with discounts, the end of this year would be the best time to buy a BS4-era car. As manufacturers gear up towards getting their BS6 products on the road, they will be offering significant discounts on their BS4 counterparts to clear stock. The reason to go for a BS6 vehicle despite the increased costs would be the added features. Also, you would be polluting the environment less. a transition from BS4 to BS6 has in most cases resulted in a minor drop in power. According to the upcoming emission norms, BS6-compliant vehicles should be 25 percent cleaner than their BS4 counterparts. While BS4 vehicles are currently allowed a NOx (Nitrous Oxide) pollutant level of 80mg/km, BS6-compliant vehicles will have NOx levels reduced to 60 mg/km.

    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!

    Good build quality. Problems with gears after 4 years. No rickety sounds in the interior even after 5 years. Mileage in mumbai city very bad - 4 to 5 km/ lt of petrol. Mileage on open highways goes up to 14kmph after continuous driving to r about an hour to a hour and half without too much use if the clutch at an average speed of 70 kmph. Ma0intennce is expensive- labour and cost if spares. Should be avoided for city use. A good option if you plan to hit the highways. Quality of soft touch switches are not of the best quality and wear out after 4 years or so. Best build quality and solid.

Skoda Rapid Highlights

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.

Rapid 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.

Rapid 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.

Rapid 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!

Skoda Rapid 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.


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!
