  • Q. How good is it to buy a Skoda Rapid - Petrol in June 2019 with the stricter BS VI emission norms ahead to be implemented by April 2020? Or should I wait for Skoda to launch the 1.0 liter TSI petrol engine and then buy?

    VW 1.0 TSI engine is nothing but the current 1.4 ltr VW engine with one cylinder removed along with a more efficient pump and bigger turbo. It is widely believed that the engine is going to be over stressed and longevity is under question mark. If you like petrol vehicle, my recommendation would be to go for Vento 1.2 TSI rather. Moreover, while BS 4 engines will run smoothly with BS 6 fuel, the reverse may not be true and its going to take some years before BS 6 fuel is available pan India.

    Zitwheel has answered already. I would like to add just one more point which is cost of upgradation. As such BS IV version is very good one and likeable. But BS IV to BS VI is a major jump and will have a certain implication of price of car.

    Since the roads ae very very bad one cannot blame the car totally for bad mileage or comfort or bad /spoilt shock absorbers, but simply put the car could be much better for the price paid - in all three areas - seats cushioning, shock absorbers, and quality of parts in the whole zone.
