Must Read Questions & Answers Before Buying New Rapid

Q. Compared with earlier version of Skoda Rapid, Now the engine power is only 1000 CC(999cc). Since Engine power reduced, how the performance like speed, pulling power, torque, mileage ?
  • The new Skoda Rapid comes equipped with a 1.0-litre TSI turbo-petrol engine that produces 110PS of power and 175Nm of torque. The engine has actually shrunk in size from 1600cc to just 999cc. Not exactly an inspiring statement. But the key acronym in the spec sheet is ‘TSI,’ and that really makes a big difference to the equation. The gearbox is also a new 6-speed manual and its throws are short, and it’s fairly slick-shifting too. That engine is also nice and tractable, so you can stay in a high gear, say 4th for example, and allow the revs to drop down to as low as say 1500rpm and it will still pull away cleanly without too much of a complaint. Yes, it is a small engine paired with a turbo, so below 2000rpm throttle response is dull, but that doesn't mean you can't keep up with traffic in the city, and a slight prod on the throttle means you can pull off an overtake. Moreover, the mileage of Skoda Rapid ranges from 16.24 Kmpl to 18.97 Kmpl (claimed). For a better understanding of performance and driving comfort, we would suggest you to take a test ride.

Q. What is the price of the engine?
  • We'd suggest you to please connect with the nearest authorized service center in order to get exact details regarding the prices and availability of the engine. Click on the given link and select your desired city for service centers.
Q. Is it worth buying 10 years old Skoda Rapid diesel?
  • It would be unfair to give a verdict here as buying a used car depends on certain factors such as the physical condition of the car, kilometers driven, number of owners, quoted price, etc. You may check out the following article for more details: Buying a used car? Here's your checklist.

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.
  • 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.
  • Depends on the need you have as a buyer, if your prototype is only driving thrill then definitely you need a turbo petrol, forever a Naturally appeared petrol of City is more happy to revv. In terms of back seat comfort and bout space City beats Rapid all time. Interior is more upmarket in City, and also maintenance cost is very less in city too.
  • I agree with you But for prospective buyers i hv some things to tell. 1 the spare wheel isnt actually a spare wheel in RAPID as it us one size smaller. 2 engine gets too hot too soon. 3 hind window glasses open half only 4 when you want to decrease speed you HAVE to apply breaks. Even when you deccelerate it keeps going at high speef

Q. How good is infotainment sytem of Honda city when compared with New Rapid?
  • New Rapid infotainment system in the top-spec is not that great. It is android based and quite complicated to use as compared to the City unit. It also misses out on Android Auto and Apple CarPlay which is offered in the Honda. The lower variants of the rapid though get the old touchscreen which is easier to use and also offers the above mentioned features.
