This time around, the car maker has introduced a new 1.5-litre TDI diesel engine, which will be replacing the outgoing 1.6-litre TDI mill. It is made available with a five speed manual and a newly developed 7-speed DSG automatic transmission gear box, which will make it more competitive in its segment. On the other hand, it has retained the 1.6-litre MPI petrol engine, which is capable of producing 103.5bhp of power in combination with a peak torque output of 153Nm. This sedan will continue to hose same set of features like its predecessor as it did not got any updates to the features. However, its interiors are slightly tweaked to emphasize its fresh new appeal. Its dual tone dashboard is now integrated with a brand new steering wheel, which is also seen in Yeti and Octavia. Apart from this, all the other aspects have been retained from its earlier version. While introducing its refined version, the car maker has also rolled out the Skoda Rapid Black Edition, which hosts a series of exclusive cosmetics.

Skoda Rapid Interior
Interiors

Editor's take :  Build quality, touch and feel of the plastics on the Rapid are good and live up to Skoda's brand expectations. The space is also sufficient in both the rows and even the boot is large. The only thing, we wish was added are the extra bells and whistles.

 

The interiors of this updated Rapid are quite elegant, which gives a pleasant feel to its occupants. It provides comfortable seating capacity for five people besides offering them with enough leg and shoulder room. The spacious cabin is decorated with a dual tone Ivory and Mocca color scheme, while the high quality plastic further gives a plush look. There are wide and well cushioned seats available that are covered with premium fabric upholstery. The driver’s seat has height adjustment facility, while the front center arm rest has a bit of storage space beneath it. The front seats are quite comfortable and the rear seats have a firm cushioning, a foldable center arm rest and height adjustable headrests. There are two rear air conditioning vents available behind the center console in between the front two seats. The two tone dashboard looks attractive in a stylish design and is equipped with a new steering wheel, center console, air vents and a glove box. The steering wheel, hand brake lever as well as gear shift indicator are wrapped with premium leather. The stylish instrument cluster has two dials reflecting green back light from within. Inside the dials, the green lit needles add to the charm of this panel. The trip computer in the middle includes a digital fuel meter, clock, distance to empty (DTE) and trip meters. This new version includes a new magnetic card holder on the center console for holding various papers like toll tickets etc, while there is cruise control available in the Ambition Plus and Elegance variants. Furthermore, it includes a unique iOS5 and Android based phone application for the rear seat occupants using which, the radio can be operated easily. The Ambition Plus and Elegance variants are blessed with an advanced 2-DIN audio system that has front and rear speakers. While the remaining trims have 1-DIN music system with cable as well as connector. There is automatic climate control present in the top end Elegance trim that electronically regulates the cabin temperature. Besides these, it has a manually dimming inside mirror, reading lights in front, illumination of luggage compartment and reading spot lamps at rear. There are cup holders available at both rear and front flip frame, storage compartment in the front center console, while the top variant comes with front seat back pockets. Moreover, it has 12V power socket that are quite useful for passengers for charging their electronic devices.

Interior Comfort:


The automaker has put in some stunning comfort features inside this sedan, which offer a pleasant driving experience to its passengers. It provides comfortable seating for five people along with a center armrest at front and rear. It has a height adjustable driver seat that makes it more convenient for the driver. Additionally, the steering wheel with height and length adjustable feature further adds to the convenience. The Active and Ambition trims have manually adjustable outside rear view mirrors, while these can be electrically adjusted in the remaining variants. This vehicle has a multi-function display (MFD) that gives information about traveling time, distance traveled, average speed, immediate consumption, average consumption, travel distance before refueling, service interval, outside temperature and a clock as well. There are front and rear power windows available in all its variants with one touch up and down function, which lacks in the base level trim. Besides these, the windscreen and windows have tinted glasses that adds to the convenience of its passengers. A few other aspects in the Ambition Plus and Elegance trims include GSM telephone preparation with Bluetooth, gear change indicator, ergo lever for front passenger seat adjustment from rear and a multi function steering wheel that is mounted with phone and audio controls. In addition to these, it has a vanity mirror in front left sun visor, foldable roof handles for front and rear passengers, lights on acoustic signal, coat hook on rear roof handles and a remote control release of boot lid. On the other hand, it is bestowed with a manually regulated air conditioning system, whereas the high end variant has a climatronic automatic AC unit, which cools the cabin and creates a pleasant ambiance.

Interior Measurements:

Acceleration & Pick-Up

Editor's take :  The acceleration of the petrol and diesel are good, especially the diesel. The latter is definitely the most the fuel-efficient one.

 

Its petrol variants with manual transmission gearbox have the ability to cross the 100 Kmph mark in 12 seconds, while its automatic trims does it in just 11 seconds. While the automatic diesel variants can break the 100 Kmph speed mark from a standstill in 12 to 13 seconds, whereas its manual version takes about 10 seconds. Its petrol powered version can achieve a top speed of approximately 165 Kmph, but the diesel variants can achieve a top speed of 175 Kmph, which is quite impressive.

Engine and Performance

Editor's take :  The 1.6-litre diesel engine of the Rapid is far superior to its petrol brethren in performance and fuel efficiency. The power delivery is linear and it is fun to drive in the city or the highway. We recommend the diesel version of the Rapid for its sheer pleasure and economy.

 

As said above, this sedan is available in both petrol and diesel engine options for the buyers to select from. Its petrol variants are equipped with a 1.6-litre, in-line engine, which comes with liquid cooling system. It has the ability to displace 1598cc. This mill is integrated with 4-cylinders and 16-valves using double overhead camshaft based valve configuration. It can churn out a maximum power output of 103.5bhp at 5250rpm in combination with 153Nm of peak torque at 3800rpm. This motor is cleverly mated with a five speed manual transmission gear box, which distributes the engine power to its front wheels. While the engine of its Ambition Plus and Elegance variants are paired with a six speed automatic transmission with triptronic manual gear changing function. On the other hand, the diesel variants are powered by a 1.5-litre mill, which comes with a displacement capacity of 1498cc. This mill can unleash a maximum power of about 103.5bhp at 4400rpm in combination with a peak torque output of 250Nm between 1500 to 2500rpm. It is mated with a five speed manual or seven speed automatic transmission gear box options.

Mileage

Editor's take :  The Rapid shares its engines with the Vento, hence the fuel efficiency is similar. The diesel is highly efficient, while the petrol has been tuned for better fuel economy.

 

This sedan series is now available with a new turbocharged direct injection based diesel engine, which is incorporated with common rail fuel supply system. Its manual version has the ability to produce a maximum mileage of approximately 21.14 Kmpl, whereas its automatic version can deliver a mileage of 21.6 Kmpl, which is quite good. The car maker has retained its petrol variants with the same 1.6-litre MPI engine, which is also available with manual and automatic transmission options. Its manual versions can give away a mileage of 15 Kmpl, which goes down to 14.3 Kmpl in its automatic variants.

Skoda Rapid Photos
Power of Skoda Rapid

Editor's take :  The power produced by the petrol and diesel engines is the same on paper, but the performance of the diesel is much better. It comes with a 1.6-litre petrol and diesel engine options. The 1.2-litre petrol isn't available on the Rapid, like the Vento. It has automatic on the 1.6-litre petrol only.

 

Its newly introduced 4-cylindered diesel engine is incorporated with a turbocharger. This allows it to produce a maximum power of 103.5bhp in combination with a commanding torque output of 250Nm, which is remarkable. On the other hand, its naturally aspirated petrol engine can produce a peak power of 103.5bhp, while yielding a superior torque output of 153Nm.

Braking & Handling

Editor's take :  The ride on the Rapid is a tad stiff, but most of the road shocks are filtered out. The Rapid lives up to the Skoda badge in the handling department. The well-balanced chassis of the Rapid makes it joy to drive around bends, and even the response from the steering wheel is good as it weighs up well.

Skoda Rapid prices were updated on November 15, 2014
While on one side their Octavia is selling much faster than they can fill in the order books, Skoda India is having a rough time selling their entry level product, Rapid. The competition has grown strong and Skoda had to up their game. A new engine and a gearbox is how they have chosen to fight the opponents. As we have already said in our First Drive report that the new Rapid is not a facelift but a Model Year update. So, though there are no changes in design, the Rapid now gets a new 1.5-litre diesel engine along with a 7-speed DSG automatic transmission and a new Black Package. Will it be enough to keep the Rapid going?... [read more]
