    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.

  • 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 mileage, maintenance cost and performance in city - Rapid?

    My car is a petrol car with a manual 5-speed transmission. Mileage: It gives 10 - 12 kmpl if the average speed is less than 20 kmph (city driving). It goes up 19 kmph if average speed exceeds 60 kmph, which is possible with four-lane highways with speeds between 80 to 100 kmph. I keep my windows rolled up always. Maintenance: I have usually spent 7500 to 10000 every year on maintenance. No breakdown maintenance as yet in last seven years. City driving: Clutch is stiffer compared to other similar cars. Except that I have found my car to be just fine for city driving. It is a matter of getting used to it.

      Extremely comfortable to drive and commute.One gets a real luxury feel in this car.Though the engine produces a roaring sound which one can hear only if the windows are slided down, But the cabin sound is minimum.You don't feel any vibrations even at speeds beyond 120 kmph.It's a very responsive car and it could be handled with surgical precision.A sturdy vehicle built to last long.Now my odo just past 202000 mark, And i feel the car is as fresh as it was on the first day.Service interval is comfortable at 15000 kms / one year, May cost you about 12000-15000 minimum.It gives a pretty good mileage, On highways, If you maintain 50-60 kmph, You can even get up to 24-25 kmpl.If you maintain 80 kmph, You can expect to get 19-20 kmpl.The build quality is superb.Painting lasts long.Even after seven years and more than 200000 kms, My car is shining as ever.After sales service is pretty good, But such service centres are really scattered; and if you have to replace some parts, Which will sure be a very infrequent event, You may have to wait for even 30-45 days some times! this is a major drawback of this vehicle.These german cars are not market leaders in providing extra features like how makers like hyundai would give; they tend to follow lazily the korean or japanese car makers who are the market leaders in providing extra features, But the cars they make are really wonderful if you are that type who would enjoy the pleasures of comfortable and luxury driving.

      The car is extremely comfortable with well-cushioned seats.The steering is well configured to offer better control on the road.The car build quality is the best in the segment which ensures passenger's safety on the road.The car offers decent mileage both in the city (11 kmpl) and on the highway (18 kmpl).My experience with the after-sale service is good.The service includes home pick up and drop, Car wash, Interior polish, Oil change, Ac filter cleaning, And some other things.The service cost me rs 8362.

      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.

      Zero to minimum vibrations. Feel safe when inside the car, very good family carValue for moneyService cost is comparable to other similar carsI didn't find any issue with the after sales service yet. The service center calls me every year to remind me for the service, provides free pick up and drop service.Overall, the car was trouble free for the last five years and my family enjoys riding in it.
