About Skoda Rapid

A very reliable and more importantly affordable, the Rapid is the Skoda’s bet against the likes of Honda City, Maruti Ciaz, Hyundai Verna and its own cousin VW Vento. Skoda has got spot-on with the styling and the clean lines add the air of sophistication to Rapid’s design. Rapid’s cabin oozes quality and upmarket feel and the choice of material subscribes to the luxurious standards. Surprisingly, the cabin is spacious enough to accommodate the three adults abreast at the back and the trunk is equally accommodating. Power flows to the front wheels of Rapid via either a 5-speed manual transmission or a 7-speed DSG and the engine options include 105PS/153Nm, 1.6-liter petrol and 110PS/250Nm, 1.5-liter diesel motor. The Skoda Rapid is retailed in India in the price range of Rs 8.49-13.77 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi) and currently acting as the starting, base line model in Skoda’s stable.

Skoda Rapid Overview

Skoda India’s top boss Zac Hollis has announced that production of the Rapid will be stopped after the Matt Edition has been sold out in the coming weeks. The Rapid will be replaced by the Slavia, which is slated for a global premiere on November 18.

Q. What to choose between Seltos and Rapid?
  • Selecting between the Kia Seltos and Skoda Rapid would depend on certain factors such as your budget, preference of the segment, features required, drivability, etc. The Rapid is a nice handling car with lower variants priced quite attractively and a long warranty. A good option for those living in tier 1 cities and have access to Skoda service. On the other hand, the Seltos would be a good pick if you are looking for a feature-rich SUV with good road presence and multiple powertrain options to choose from. The Seltos have a great mix of style, tech, quality and comfort. When you add the various engine and gearbox options, the trim levels, plus the variants, there is a Kia Seltos for everyone. In terms of shortcomings, the rear seat could have done with a bit more support and the petrol automatic could have been a bit smoother, but other than that the Seltos is hard to fault. Moreover, we would suggest you to take a test drive before making the final decision. Follow the link and select your desired city for dealership details.\Read More: - Kia Seltos vs Skoda Rapid
