Rapid 2011-2013 1.6 MPI Ambition Plus Alloy Review

Skoda Auto, the Czech based auto-giant, has always been involved with the manufacturing of extravagant sedans. Skoda gained dominance and became a household name in India, when the highly prestigious Volkswagen Group announced that it is now a wholly owned subsidiary of this group. The production as well as the sales graph witnessed an amazing hike as more people were attracted towards it. Surprisingly, it has launched the facelift version of its sedan, Rapid without creating much noise. Skoda Rapid is an entry-level sedan comprising of all the modern features as well as the latest technology, which was first introduced in the Indian shores in 2011. Skoda Raid Ambition 1.6 MPI MT Plus is the base variant in this model line up. As told, its the base variant but that doesn't make it featureless or any less seductive from the other similar sedans. It comes loaded with a highly efficient yet dominating 1.6 MPI, in-line, liquid cooling system, 16V DOHC, transverse in front petrol engine which generates a good power output of 103.8 BHP at 5250 RPM and a maximum torque of 153Nm at 3800 RPM.

Ambition 1.6 MPI MT Plus is scintillating and dashing in exterior appearance. Skoda has launched it in five color trims which are Candy White, Brilliant Silver, Cappuccino Beige, Flash Red, and Deep Black Pearl. Furthermore, Skoda has harnessed the combination of art and technology in the truest way by employing a chrome laced front grille which enhances the looks and appearance of this sedan. The 14'"inch alloy wheels add zing and elegance to the exterior profile. The body colored external rear view mirrors and door handles are like icing on the cake as they blend perfectly with the sedan's color . Wider dimensions also add up to its tally of exquisite features as it looks much bigger in profile.
