Skoda Rapid Review
Skoda Rapid has received its second facelift and now resembles its larger siblings – the Octavia and Superb. It had been more than four years since the launch of the Rapid and Skoda and this the first significant change in styling for the C-segment sedan.
The front fascia has become sharper with a restyled grille and the almost rectangular headlamps. The front bumper and the fenders have been reworked for the edgy look. The tail lamps have been tweaked as well and the rear bumper sculpted to complete the new look. The sharp edges gives the Rapid a sleek and premium look moving away from the Fabia-esque look of the previous car.
On the inside, it gets a black and beige interior. The dashboard elements have been tweaked to go with the edgy exterior. It will get the Climatronic climate control system with dust and pollen filters along with AC vents for the rear passenger. The Skoda Rapid now gets MirrorLink touchscreen infotainment system from the Octavia with a reverse camera option, cruise control and rain sensing wipers. In terms of safety, the new Rapid offers standard airbags and ABS with EBD. The facelift also gets electronically adjustable and foldable ORVMs.
Under the hood, you have two engine options with both manual and automatic transmissions. It will continue to get the 1.6-litre four cylinder naturally aspirated MPI petrol engine that develops 104bhp of power and 153Nm of torque. The 1.5-litre turbo-diesel is the reworked EA189 series engine which develops 112bhp of power and 250Nm of torque. Both engines are mated to a five-speed manual gearbox. In case of automatic transmissions, the petrol comes mated with a six-speed DSG while the diesel is mated to a seven-speed DSG unit.
The Skoda Rapid has been pitched against the Maruti Suzuki Ciaz, the Honda City and the Hyundai Verna along with its twin, the Volkswagen Vento. Also in the fray are the Renault Scala and the Nissan Sunny. With maintenance and warranty options being offered for the new Rapid, Skoda is aiming to bring the maintenance costs down.
