  • Q. Which petrol engine is better between Skoda Rapid and Honda City i-VTEC petrol engine in terms of refinement, performance, and mileage for a non-enthusiastic driver?
    Prasad | 8 months ago

    Among the two cars, Rapid has a larger engine and has better torque characteristics than City. Power figures declared for Rapid don't do justice for the car as the engine is homologated at 5200 rpm against 6600 rpm for City. Actually it has almost a flat torque curve 140+ Nm for speeds above 3000 rpm. It's a refined engine with very good pulling power. When doing highway driving, you'll never really feel that Rapid is running out of power. So my vote goes to Rapids engine. My car returns impressive 18-19 kmpl on long drives.But at the same time, City's smaller engine engine is more rev happy and more silent too. So choice becomes subjective from this angle.

  • Q. I am confused between Amaze Petrol or Rapid Petrol. Please suggest also, what is maintenance cost and mileage of both?
    Zigwheels | 6 months ago

    Honda Amaze is available with a 1.2-litre petrol engine which has an output of 90PS of power and 110Nm of torque, whereas, Skoda Rapid can be had with a more powerful 1.6-litre MPI petrol engine that generates 105PS of power and 153Nm of peak torque. If you do not fancy the power and wants to drive calmly then the Honda Amaze checks all the points. On the other hand, if you want a powerful petrol engine with assuring build quality and well-specced variants then the Skoda Rapid would be a better pick. Click here for further comparison.

  • Q. What is the mileage, maintenance cost and performance in city - Rapid?
    Prasad | 10 months ago

    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.

  • Q. Hello everyone, In my research for third car, I came across Skoda Rapid. Earlier i had a plan to buy a Baleno Alpha Variant after selling my Maruti 800 and Swift 2010. But now, i am interested in going for a more premium car. Anyone over here who can guide me on Skoda Rapid 2018...? Like how it is for daily use. Its maintenance and mileage in city. I would also like to know a user experience on it...of-course in brief form. The on road price of Skoda Rapid in Hyderabad is around 9.30 lacs with a full 4 year free service maintenance. And baleno alpha is coming for me at Rs 8.90 lacs. But all my friends are recommending to go for a Maruti Baleno instead of Skoda as they say it only gives 8 kmpl and is not suitable for office commute.

    Baleno is a better product from the Maruti Suzuki stables, for a more robust, safe and premium car I'd suggest the rapid, you can use it for long commutes as well, I drive mine in the city I get around 10 to 12 with AC around 15 to 16 on highways. If short of parking space, just a city car suggest baleno or else rapid for a more luxurious feel

  • Q. I want to purchase a car. Which is good in mileage for daily run 80km. safety with good looking with good resale after 6 to 7 years. Please suggest me, Maruti, Honda or Skoda - Rapid?
    Ragland | 6 months ago

    If only mileage is your concern then nothing beats Maruti in it . In case safety is also a concern along with the mileage and good looking then you may prefer Honda or Skoda . Honda has upper hand in mileage when compared to Skoda!!
