I am impresed by the features of Skoda rapid. since I am planning to by a sedan very shortly,the turning radius of Skoda Rapid is 10.6M where as the close rivals i.e. Hynudai Verna and Honda City have just half of the figure (5.3/5.2M). So due to this I suppose the car will have less maneuverabilty for example it may pose problems while negotiating hair pin bends/turns often encountered in hilly areas.Is it so? I am little hesitant to go for it.

My question still remains unanswered. Why the Turning radius (diameter) fugure is higher in comparison with other cars i.e. Verna, City etc.If i am not wrong then Turning Radiaus figure is the diameter of the circle created by car outer front wheel when car takes full turn.The lower the Turning Radius the lesser the space the car requites to turn. Is it misprint or real? Because Verna and City figures are 5.2M and 5.3M where as Rapid has it staggering at 10.6M exactly the double. If it is really so then I am afraid the car would need more surface area to turn and maneuver around. If the figure is wrongly projected then I request the people responsible to kindly look into it and have it corrected soonest. I for sure shall not opt for this car if the figure is real.Thanks.

I'm guessing its a mis-match of the units Skoda measures when compared to Indian market... Skoda might have meant 10.6 mtrs to be the diameter!!!
