Pros : Good Mileage, Affordable price and feature rich

Cons : lesser power output

I own a Skoda Rapid for last six months and have driven it about 5k kms. If I have to explain the car's performance in one word than it is simply superb. I am a big Skoda fan and wanted to own a Skoda car from starting but their higher prices don't allow me to do so, but when they launch the Rapid, this dream came true. I have Skoda Rapid 1.6 TDI Elegance, which cost me around 10 lakh, which is not that high price for such a wonderful car. The beautiful looks and subtle design took is what that make this car so special. The car is as stylish and elegant as it is from outside. The spacious cabin gives you much needed comfort on rough Indian roads. The drivability of the car is good, it drives so well both on highways and in cities. I own the top-end variant, thus it comes loaded with a lots off features like ABS, cruise control, in-built stereo and music system, electrically adjustable mirrors and airbags. I have to travel a lot as I am a businessman and drives around 200km on the daily basis and the Skoda is the best car for this as it gives a mileage of 20kmpl in city, yes I am getting 20kmpl mileage in city traffic. In last six months, I never faced any serious problem with the car and also satisfy with the Skoda service centers. At last, I will say it totally wort to by this car.

    I used to drive Ford taurus 14 years back. And currently I am going to own Skoda Rapid Plus Elegance Diesel, But I do not think that I am buying a car which is atleast equivalent to the car I drove 14 yrs back. In India it is going to be slow and we never get a car with great facilities. I had cruise control, Brake and Gas pedals adjustments, Power windows,steering adjustments, Air bags, ABS, Auto traction control, Power seat, Child Locks and no question about space and many more 14 years back. And still I could not find a car like that for a reasonable price after so long years.... :) !! THAT IS TOO BAD FOR INDIA....SINCE WE ARE TOO MUCH UPTODATE ON COMPUTERS THAN CARS...May be BMW, Porsche, RolllsRyce have different opinion.... :)

    Please read other reviews . The worst car I ever had .. Better keep a second car , because your car will be with service, mine is still with them , They are waiting for the parts to come from the company That is happening in a city like Delhi . If they do not have after sales support in Delhi ,,which city will they have Before the first service my car's engine mounting cracked .. In order to reduce the price they have used poor parts

    Hi, I don't agree on the Cruise control........Boss I do have Rapid Elegance TDi, which is top end model and the purchase period was the same as he mentioned(may 2012) ..BUTTTTTTTTTT it does not have any Cruise Control.... DO you really have Skoda Rapid????Or might be Skoda has manufactured only 1 piece with Cruise control which is with you .LOL
