Last 15 years as a business man I have used lot of cars...from my past experiences I have decided to upgrade my Feat Punto to Skoda Rapid, whatI need more was....
.Automatic Transmission..(My wife was suffering from Knee Pain because of Tight clutch of diesel cars)
.More Cabin Space
.Rear seat Leg space
Before I decide to Skoda Rapid Automatic Style Diesel...My test drive reports of other cars given below..
1.Eco sport Both Automatic and diesel..(Its a very easy to handle,,steering is very lite automatic is big failure...and no mileage)
2.Honda city(Good Car but no automatic for diesel variant ,Petrol automatic has no better mileage and old technology)
3.VolksVagen Ameo (Automatic DSG...only attraction is DSG-technology its a worst can big shame for volksvagen)
4.Nissan terrano and Renault duster Both are same, automatic is AMT technology while driving its Lagging Very much ....we feel every gear shifting
5 Cretta....Good one no lagging in auto, very less cabin noise ...very comfort...but only negative found(Credit goes to my Wife) While sitting in rear seat we cant see anything in outside its very uncomforted for long journeys
6.Honda BRV Same as Honda city..
7.VolksVagen Vento it was a tight competition with Rapid because both are same but what I feel better is less engine noise and better shock ups. My rapid is only 59 Days old while I am writing this review and we have driven 5120 KMs. Best mileage I got 23.4 and worst is 17.3 in heavy traffic.
Gear shifting is very smooth ...I have driven 480 KM without tired...Very good stability...I have paid over speed fine for above 110 KMs two times...Aircon is very good but you need blinds for hot season for better cooling.
Thanks for reading this review my only suggestion to all my friends is please take a test drive all cars at least 30 kms before you take final decision (Beware some showrooms will not provide you Automatic for test Drive.......)
I BUY A CAR SKODA RAPID IN 2013 NEW DIESEL MODEL AFTER SIX MONTH THERE...
I researched for about a couple of months, test drove a dozen of cars ...
Pros :Performance wise is gud and comfortable riding Cons: A noisy eng...
