Hi Team Car Dekho, I am thinking to buy a new car and really confused which one i have to go. I have shortlisted 2 petrol cars which is Honda City SV and Skoda Rapid Ambition. My main concern is safety, quality and features and also the budget should be around 10 Lakh. It would be highly appreciated your valuable advises. Regards, Jagathkumar Narayanan 675 7072 5451
Skoda Rapid Petrol 1.6 MPI Ambition Vs Honda City Petrol i VTEC SV – Which Is Better And Why?
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.
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.
Skoda Rapid Petrol Engine Specifications:
1.6-litre 103.52bhp 16V Petrol Engine
Maximum Power: 103.52bhp@5250rpm
Honda City Petrol Engine Specifications:
1.5-litre 117.3bhp 16V i VTEC Engine
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.

Hi, I am Rajesh this side. I have almost finalized the Renault KWID 1.0 AMT version but then I got a call from other dRenault dealer informing me about some scheme on renault pulse. Now I am a bit confused as the on road price of both the vehicles is coming alomst the same. While I have gone thru the specks of both the vehicle, can you please help me know if Renault is planning to stop the production of Pulse??
Hi Rajesh, glad to know that you are planning for a new car and thanks for making us a part of it. Its great that you are getting good offers on Renault Pulse and if the on-road price of the car is coming near to the on-road price of KWID, then its a better pick here.
Moreover, as you said that you have almost finalized Renault KWID 1.0 AMT, then we would really like to know that why you are going with a manual one. AMT will provide you a better driving experience while manoeuvring the car in city traffic and also, the KWID has more features (Comfort and convenience) on offer.

Now, coming to a conclusion, we recommend that you go ahead for Maruti Vitara Brezza here as per your requirements. The car delivers a better mileage and has a good resale value. There is no doubt on the maintenance cost as it belongs to Maruti Family and they do hold the best position in India when it comes to maintenance cost.

Now, talking about the shortlisted options, both the cars are doing good in the market. Talking about the sale figures, both the cars are having a neck to neck competition.
Both of them are available in Petrol as well as Diesel but the difference you will find is of engine capacity, power output, performance and the features that are on offer. Yes, the Tiago is a better package here as it comes with a better engine and provides lots of features while comparing it with the Celerio but as the Celerio comes from Maruti family, it possess a very affordable maintenance and service cost. Also, the resale value will also be good.
Now, we recommend that you take a test drive of both the vehicles which will help you in making the final decision. Still, please click here to check the detailed comparison of both the cars.
Hey, its great that you wish to book a new Maruti Baleno. It is indeed an amazing car which comes with superb design and has a great fit and finish. Apart from this, the interiors are very eye catching.
Also, it comes with standard safety features like ABS, EBD and Dual Airbag. In order to book the vehicle, we recommend that you get in touch with any of the nearest Nexa Premium dealership and do check for the availability as well because there is an average waiting period of around 6-8 months on this car.
