Pros and Cons

  • Pros
  • Cons

    Honda City

    • Spacious cabin. Rear-seat kneeroom rivals cars from a segment above.
    • Petrol motor + manual gearbox + playful chassis = FUN!
    • Brilliant tuning for the CVT automatic makes driving effortless.
    • Comfortable ride quality. Better suited for Indian roads now.

    Skoda Rapid

    • Classy mature styling.
    • Fit and finish of the interiors.
    • Good performance and handling makes it a driver's car
    • Comfortable ride despite good handling
    • Rear seat space

    Honda City

    • Interior plastic quality could’ve been better.
    • Needs more ‘wow’ features: ventilated seats, powered driver’s seat, branded stereo etc.
    • No diesel automatic on offer. Cheaper Amaze offers it.

    Skoda Rapid

    • No diesel option.
    • Short feature list.
    • Automatic is a bit too eager for city speeds
