It provides comfortable seating capacity for five people besides offering them with enough leg and shoulder room.

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 from a standstill, while its automatic trims can cross this speed mark in just 11 seconds. At the same time, 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 thrilling for the occupants sitting inside.

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 four cylinders and sixteen 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 Elegance 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 103.5bhp at 4400rpm in combination with a commanding torque output of 250Nm in the range of 1500 to 2500rpm. It is mated with a five speed manual or seven speed DSG automatic transmission gear box, depending on the variants.

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.

 

The 1.5-litre turbocharged diesel engine is incorporated with a common rail based direct injection fuel supply system, which enhances its fuel efficiency. Its manual version has the ability to produce a maximum mileage of approximately 21.14 Kmpl on the bigger roads and 15 Kmpl in the city traffic conditions. Whereas its automatic variant can deliver a mileage of 21.6 Kmpl on the highways and about 14.5 Kmpl within the city limits, which is quite good. The car maker has retained its petrol variants with the same 1.6-litre engine, which is also available with manual and automatic transmission options. This motor is integrated with a multi point fuel injection supply system, which allows the sedan to can give away a mileage of 15 Kmpl (manual), which goes down to 14.3 Kmpl in its automatic variants.

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 based diesel engine is incorporated with a turbocharger, which enables the vehicle to produce a maximum power of 103.5bhp at 4400rpm in combination with a commanding torque output of 250Nm between 1500 to 2500rpm, which is remarkable for this class. On the other hand, its naturally aspirated petrol engine can produce a peak power of 103.5bhp at 5250rpm, while yielding a superior torque output of 153Nm at just 3800rpm.

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]

  • Good car ruined by the worst after sales service
    By Kishor| | 1761 Views
    A very good car, robust build, safe, has adequate features, excellent ride and handling but all this is ruined by the attitude and poor after sales service of Skoda at least in Pune. Spare availability, huge service cost, monopoly by the dealer and if this was enough so they added the people in their service dept having only one quality- worst attitude. If you have lot of money, if you are not worried with the patience killing attitude by others,... Read Full Review

  • Hi, This is Abarna. my query will be little lengthier, but I don't have option to avoid. We are planning to buy a new car. Initially we planned to get hatchback and its coming almost 7 lakhs with decent features. so we checked amaze and sail sedan cars as well, its coming around 8-9 lakhs with same features. so we planned to go for sedan model. My requirements are 1. I will drive 4-5 members every weekend. In City, we will be 2 members. 2. we expect average mileage(between these cars) and mainly maintenance cost should be decent(includes spare parts/resale value/etc) I got 2 queries on selecting the car. 1. Petrol/Diesel 2. Sedan which car Petrol/Diesel : Mostly we will drive on every weekend to go to home-town around 250km in city say 200km will come around 1200-1500 KM/month(max). so, which fuel car would be best to buy in terms of km I drive | Reply
