Skoda Rapid Petrol 1.6 MPI Ambition Vs Honda City Petrol i VTEC SV – Which Is Better And Why?

Exteriors:

In terms of exteriors, both cars have different design language. The Honda City has sharp lines and very modern design language while the Rapid has simple and elegant styling for sophistication. There is nothing striking about the exterior styling of Rapid. It has been designed for the buyers who appreciate simplicity and neatness more than the modern and dynamic styling. In terms of exteriors, my vote goes to Honda City as it does look better in terms of exteriors.

Interiors:

In terms of Interiors, both Skoda Rapid and Honda City have good quality to offer. The plastic quality, upholstery, fit and finish of both Honda and Skoda are up to the mark. There is sufficient interior space and rear leg space in both these cars. In terms of interior quality and features, I think both cars are very close, but Skoda seems a better choice. In terms of comfort and safety features - Honda City has better features as it offers Automatic Climate Control, Cruise Control, EBD and few more.

Engine Specifications:

Skoda Rapid Petrol Engine Specifications:

1.6-litre 103.52bhp 16V Petrol Engine

Maximum Power: 103.52bhp@5250rpm
Max Torque:153Nm@3800rpm

Honda City Petrol Engine Specifications:

1.5-litre 117.3bhp 16V i VTEC Engine

Maximum Power:117.3bhp@6600rpm    
Max Torque:145Nm@4600rpm    

Looking at the engine specifications, its very clear that Honda City has got a better power to weight ratio, better peak power, however, Rapid has a better low end torque which is helpful in congested driving as lesser downshifts are needed. However, on engine front, our vote goes to Honda City petrol.

Handling and Performance:

Both Honda City and Skoda Rapid are good handling cars. Honda City is very renowned in its segment for sharp handling and planted driving characteristic. On the other hand, Rapid, derived from Vento, has been re-tuned on suspension to give even better handling characteristics than Vento which is already a pretty good handler. In terms on handling, I would call it a tie.

Verdict: If you are looking for a higher value for money - Honda City seems to be a better bet in every aspect.
