Answers for this Question

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.

    Tata Tiago has refreshing styling & comes with peppy petrol and torquey diesel engines which are tuned just right for the city and occasional highway jaunts.

    Miss: Rear seats lack under-thigh support which will be uncomfortable over long journeys. It comes with 3-cylinder engine which reflect a bit of engine noise will filter inside the cabin.

    Honda Jazz has mature ride quality, comes with solid build quality & has unparalleled knee-room and headroom at the rear bench. Mechanically, it comes with two engine options – 1.2-litre i-VTEC petrol (90PS/110PS), 5-speed MT/CVT and 1.5-litre i-DTEC diesel (100PS/200Nm), 6-speed MT.

    Maruti Ignis has high seating position which gives a commanding view of the road ahead. Engine options include the 83PS/113Nm 1.2-litre K-Series petrol and the 75PS/190 1.3-litre DDiS190 engine. Both engines can be had with a 5-speed manual or a 5-speed AMT.

    Miss: The cabin is spacious and practical for four adults & the quality of plastic used inside the cabin are slightly hard.

    As far as mileage is concerned, Jazz (petrol) has a mileage ranging between 14.3kmpl and 18.7kmpl while Ignis (petrol) offers a fuel efficiency of 16.9 - 20.9kmpl. On the other hand, Tiago delivers a fuel efficiency of 19.2 - 23.8kmpl. These are claimed figures & will vary as per one's driving style / habits.

    Verdict:

    The core strengths of the Jazz remain the interior space and the humongous boot. If you need nothing else but a spacious hatch - the Jazz is right choice. If your budget permits, pick for Jazz. If you're looking for impressive feature list & don't go often on long journey then we suggest you to pick for Tiago.

    If you want to retain the peace of mind, look no further, Ignis is right pick. Belonging to Maruti family, it has exceptional services and strong after-sales network.

    Verdict:
    The core strengths of the Jazz remain the interior space and the humongous boot. If you need nothing else but a spacious hatch - the Jazz is right pick. On the other hand, Elite i20 is not as spacious as the Baleno or Jazz. However, the fit and finish quality is impeccable and the Elite’s trim quality levels are a benchmark. There’s a good amount of features on offer too and let’s not forget, the car looks fantastic too & thus makes for a great buy.

    With the kind of built quality in Ameo on offer along with potent engines under its hood, this sub-compact sedan from Volkswagen does stand out.
