    Comfort and safety along German standard of perfection, same as a premium car. If your budget is under 8-9 Lacs

    Driving is so smooth and sturdy that I felt in Audi A4. Same comfort as a premium car in very reasonable price car, bravo. If your budget is under 8-9Lacs and still want to enjoy features and safety of premium segment cars, give Rapid a try. Value for money
