Skoda Rapid Review

Overview

Skoda Rapid is a C-segment family sedan from the Czech Republican automaker, which is also the most affordable one in the Skoda India's model lineup. The manufacturer kept updating this model series by introducing special and limited edition trims in regular intervals. Recently, it has revamped its variant lineup and introduced two new trim levels. Also, it has brought back the base Active trim to the series and increased its reach to the budget car buyers. Besides this entry level version, there are three other trims available in the series, which are Ambition, Style and Style Plus. Available with two different engine options, this sedan offers wide range of options to its buyers. Also, customers can opt between manual and automatic transmission option, even with the diesel engine. Last year, we can seen the firm updating this family car, especially with regards to its technical specifications. It is being introduced with a new 1.5-litre TDI engine replacing the 1.6-litre oil-burner. Also, it is made available with a 7-Speed DSG automatic transmission gearbox that instantly garnered the attention of buyers. To further enhance its competitiveness, the manufacturer has added electronic stability program to the diesel automatic versions. While the petrol versions kept untouched. It was then, now, with the revision of its trim line-up, the company looks to place itself in a comfortable position in this C segment.

Moving away from the updates, this car looks the same like its predecessor without any modifications to its style. In spite of this, the car looks stunning owing to its superior build quality unlike the rest. This sedan has a perfect design with regards to its exteriors that exudes an aura of excellence from every facet. Its radiator grille, headlamps, C-contoured taillights and triangular bootlid, expresses the superiority of a Skoda. As for the insides, its looks simple, yet eye-catching owing to the dual tone color scheme it has. As part of the recent updates, this sedan gets a new steering wheel, which we can also witness in the likes of Octavia and Yeti. It also scores high with its comfort features, which are perhaps the best in its segment. Its high end trims, Style and Style Plus are the ones, which have a long list of features including Climatronic automatic AC unit, a multi-information display and an Audio player with large format display. Also, they get electrically adjustable driver seat and leather upholstery, which further brings the magnificence to the cabin. As for the safety, this sedan gets an array of sophisticated safety features like dual front airbags, parking sensors and brake assistance programs. With all such exciting features, this sedan is competing against the likes of Honda City, Hyundai Verna, Ford Fiesta and Maruti Ciaz in India. Another positive factor is that it is available with a standard warranty of two years without any restrictions to kilometer, which is certainly impressive.

Skoda Rapid Exterior

Exteriors

This premium sedan exudes classy characteristics from all round and stands out from others. Like its exterior designing, it has a perfect body construction, which is another reason for its charismatic look. It has lustrous body lines, especially on its sides and on its bonnet that renders it a silhouette of a modern car. Starting with the front, it has a signature radiator grille with vertically positioned bars and a chrome plated strip. Furthermore, it is embossed with the company's logo in its center. Flanking this are the headlight cluster that is powered by halogen lamps and turn indicators. The range toppers Style and Style Plus are on offer with powerful projector headlamps that adds to the visibility, which enhancing its distinctive look. The body colored bumper at the front has a small air intake section along with consoles for fog lamps as well. Its side profile looks even more subtle with a design that exudes class and power. Here, we can see body color finish on its ORVMs and door handles, while black coating is given to the B pillars. Its fenders are mated with alloy wheels of size 15-inch, which further adds to its robustness. However, the base and mid range versions are being offered with steel wheels only. The rear end looks bolder than ever before, thanks to the C-contoured taillight cluster and a contemporary bootlid. Adding to this, there are chrome highlights on the bootlid that renders it a classy appeal.

Exterior Measurements:

This vehicle has perhaps a long wheelbase in its segment that stretches about 2552mm. Its minimum ground clearance is about 168mm. Its overall length, width and height are 4386mm, 1699mm and 1466mm respectively.

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 sedan looks plush owing to the vibrant Ivory and Mocca color scheme. The space inside the cabin is surprisingly good and it can accommodate five occupants comfortably. The seating inside is well designed with good ergonomics and cushion to aid comfort. These seats have been covered with premium grade upholstery that eventually helps to beautify the cabin. Here, the driver's seat has adjusting facility, while the bench seat at rear has split folding function. The dashboard has a no-nonsense kind of a design and its two tone color scheme. Furthermore, the chrome garnish on the AC vents and steering wheel renders a magnificent appeal to the cabin. The instrument cluster design looks a bit outdated, but it provides vital information to the driver and keeps him updated. It also has a trip computer integrated with functions like a digital fuel meter, clock, distance to empty and trip meters. In the base and mid range trims, it gets a standard manual AC unit, while in the range toppers “Style” and “Style Plus”, there is an automatic climate control unit. For convenience purpose, there are several utility functions provided inside the cabin including manually dimming inside mirror, reading lights in front, illumination of luggage compartment cup holders storage units and accessory power sockets.

Interior Comfort:

This vehicle is currently put on offer in four trim levels namely Active, Ambition, Style and Style Plus. Among these, Active is the base trim, which has all the essential features for a comfortable driving experience. To start with, it has height and length adjustable steering wheel, center armrests, a manual air conditioning system, electrically adjustable outside mirrors, power windows with one touch operation and a gearshift indicator. Also, it has features like front sun visors, accessory power sockets, lights-on acoustic signal and drink holders. The next-in-line “Ambition” trim has facilities like a multi-functional display that is integrated with features like traveling time, distance traveled, average consumption, outside temperature and other vital stats of the car. Besides these, there are facilities like bounce-back system, Skoda 2-DIN audio player and height adjustable driver's seat. The range toppers Style and Style Plus variants have identical set of features, but the Style Plus trim additionally gets leather upholstery along with cruise control system and automatic front wipers with rain sensors. The features include Climatronic automatic air conditioning system and a cooled glovebox unit as well.

Interior Measurements:

The cabin of this sedan is spacious than you can expect and it can comfortably house a maximum of five occupants. As for the luggage storage, there is a boot volume of 460 litres, whose capacity can be increased further by folding the rear bench seat. Also, there is a massive fuel tank that has 55 litres of fuel storage capacity.

Skoda Rapid Gear

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.

 

This sedan's extreme power producing capabilities helped it to outperform its rivals with regards to acceleration and pickup. It has the ability to achieve a top speed in the range of 165 to 170 Kmph. As for its pickup, the time to reach 100 Kmph mark from a standstill clocks between 10 to 12 seconds, which is rather 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 currently available in two engine options. Its petrol versions are housed with a 1.6-litre, in-line motor that has a displacement capacity of 1598cc. This is a 4-cylindered motor with 16-valves altogether based on double overhead camshaft based valve configuration. Also, it has multi-point fuel injection technology for better power output and mileage. It can churn out 103.5bhp of maximum power at 5250rpm in combination with 153Nm of peak torque at 3800rpm. On the other hand, the diesel trims houses a 1.5-litre TDI drive train, which is also based on the same 4-cylinder configuration like its petrol counterpart. It has a displacement capacity of 1498cc and is integrated with a turbocharger. Being incorporated with a CRDI technology, it can unleash a maximum power of 103.5bhp at 4400rpm in combination with a superior torque of 250Nm in the range of 1500 to 2500rpm. Both these mills are mated with 5-speed manual gearbox as standard fitment. While “Style” and “Style Plus” trims additionally have automatic transmission option. However, its petrol versions are put on offer with 6-speed automatic gearbox, while the oil-burners are made available with 7-Speed automatic gearbox.

Skoda Rapid Mileage

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 oil-burner has a CRDI fuel injection technology for increased power output and reduced fuel consumption. This enables the vehicle to deliver a mileage of 21.14 Kmpl (with manual gearbox) and 21.6 Kmpl (with automatic gearbox). Its petrol trims are powered by a 1.6-litre power plant, which is capable of giving away 15 Kmpl. However, this figure 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 TDI mill comprises of 4-cylinders and comes integrated with a turbocharger, as its name suggest. It produces a maximum power of 103.5bhp that results in a superior torque output of 250Nm. The other one is a naturally aspirated petrol motor, which belts out 103.5bhp of power along with 153Nm of torque.

Skoda Rapid Accessories

Stereo & Accessories

Editor's take :  The Rapid gets a music system with Bluetooth, aux and USB connectivity, alloy wheels in the range topper. It also has steering mounted audio controls and even projector headlamps on the Elegance model, which is the top-of-the-line variant. The 2014 model even has leather seats as a standard fitment.

 

The Active trim comes with a facility to incorporate 1DIN music system owing to the pre-installed cables and connectors. The trims from Ambition are bestowed with an advanced 2-DIN audio player featuring a large format display and four speakers. Also, they have Aux-in port, USB interface, SD and MMC card reader facilities as well. In addition to these, the manufacturer has installed a Telephonic function along with Bluetooth connection, wherein the controls have been placed on the steering wheel.

You can now buy Skoda Rapid accessories online. Great discounts available.

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.

 

This sedan series is blessed with a unique hydraulic dual diagonal circuit vacuum assisted braking mechanism. Its front wheels are fitted with a set of disc brakes, while the rear ones have conventional set of drum brakes. Apart from the Active trim, all other versions are integrated with features like anti lock braking system along with dual rate brake assist function. On the other hand, the front axle is assembled with a McPherson suspension featuring lower triangular links and torsion stabilizer. The rear end gets a compound link crank axle type of mechanism. Besides these, it has a direct rack and pinion steering with an electro mechanic system featuring speed sensitive function that makes handling effortless even in peak traffic conditions.

Skoda Rapid Safety and Security

Safety & Security

Editor's take :  The Rapid gets dual airbags and ABS in the top of the line variant.

 

This sedan series has all the essential protective features, which can take care of the occupants safety. Some of those include a centrally located high mounted stop lamp, height adjustable head restraints, anti glare internal rear view mirror, central locking system, rough road package, rear doors with child safety locks and remote control with foldable key. This series also has 3-point seat belts for all passengers along with reminder for driver seat belt. Also, there is an advanced engine immobilizer with floating code that can safeguards the vehicle from theft and unauthorized entry. In addition to these, it also has automatic locking of doors on overrun speed, remote control opening and closing windows, fuel supply cut-off in crash, front and rear fog lamps. The anti lock system along with dual rate brake assist function further augments its braking mechanism. The high end version also as Parktronic sensors at rear that aids in reducing the efforts required to park the vehicle.

Skoda Rapid Wheels

Wheels

Among four variants, first two trims are on offer with a set of 15-inch steel wheels with 'Dakara' style full wheel covers. While the other two versions are bestowed with 'Bold' alloy wheels of same size. These are covered with 185/60 R15 sized tubeless radial tyres.

Pros

1. Spacious internal cabin with ample set of comfort features.

2. Fuel economy of diesel variants is quite good.

3. Exteriors appearance looks classy.

4. Availability with both manual and automatic transmission gear box.

5. Safety features are at par with other sedans.

Cons

1. After sales service needs to improve.

2. Lower ground clearance is a minus point.

3. Cost of maintenance and spares is expensive.

4. Mileage of petrol variants is not satisfying.

5. Diesel engine noise and harshness can be reduced.
