Here’s How Much You’ll Have To Shell Out For Skoda’s Revived Rapid Rider Variant


Its feature list remains unchanged

 

  • Rapid Rider variant is Rs 30,000 pricier than before.

  • The Rider Plus (MT/AT), Style MT, Monte Carlo MT, Ambition AT and Onyx AT variants see a price hike of Rs 20,000.

  • It continues to rival the Hyundai Verna, Maruti Suzuki Ciaz, Toyota Yaris, and Volkswagen Vento.

The Skoda Rapid Rider was an instant hit when the Rapid TSI has launched back in May 2020 thanks to its attractive price tag which gave sub-4 metre sedans a run for their money. Such was its popularity that its bookings had to be halted last year to meet pending orders. Thankfully, Skoda has finally revived the Rapid Rider variant, but it has come with a price hike. Here’s how it’s priced now:

The Rapid Rider variant has received a price hike of Rs 30,000. Despite that, it’s the most affordable midsize sedan in the country by some margin. Aside from this, other variants such as the Rider Plus (MT/AT), Style MT, Monte Carlo MT, Ambition AT and Onyx AT see a price hike of Rs 20,000.

Features-wise, the Rapid Rider remains as is with highlights being the 2-DIN audio system with USB and Aux IN, power windows, remote locking, climate control, electronic adjustable ORVMs, as well as a tilt and reach-adjustable steering wheel. Dual front airbags, ABS, and rear parking sensors cover the safety kit on offer.

Under the hood, the Rapid is equipped with a 110PS 1.0-litre TSI petrol engine, paired with a 6-speed manual transmission as standard. Every variant, except for the base Rapid Rider, is offered with a 6-speed torque converter automatic transmission option.

Skoda is working on a successor to the Rapid, which will get a new name. It will utilise Skoda-VW’s new heavily localised MQB-A0-IN platform with various updates inside and out. It’s expected to launch around Diwali 2021. In the meantime, the Skoda Rapid rivals the likes of the Hyundai Verna, Maruti Suzuki Ciaz, Toyota Yaris, and Volkswagen Vento
