Pros : NA

Cons : NA

Look and Style: Skoda Rapid and VW Vento look similar but Rapid is liitle bit attractive by projector head lamps and cruise control.  Comfort: Comfort wise Rapid is better than Vento   Pickup: Remains same for both the cars   Mileage: No one is saying precisely of how much mileage it gives in city and highways. Best Features: Both Vento and Rapid are same except for the ground clearance. Rapid is better than Vento. Needs to improve: Tyres of Rapid are Apollo which are worst, whereas in Vento you get Goodyear, Brideston tyres. Overall Experience: Everyone is saying that service is poor. I don't know why they have open a factory in Pune. Please clarify somebody.  And also regarding the mileage which is better especially in diesel version. Kindly clarify what is the suspension life and how will it work on Chennai roads and in common Indian roads.Please help me out to buy among these two.

    It is better to go for CIAZ or Amaze instead Rapid or VW Vento poor service and maintenance cost otherwise German design better compared to Maruthi the Japan design. Ciaz is aerodyne better than AMaZE and other sedan variants.

    Amaze is extremely crappy! While ciaz is just another maruti Suzuki car, that drives almost like dezire; although it has a bigger engine, but the power is toned down for getting our more mileage from the car! What a waste.

    Both cars are almost identical, however, from looks perspective, i will recommend Vento (more classic sedan shape). Also, VW service is wee bit better than Skoda (though I should mention both brands don't stand a chance when compared to A.S.S of other brands like Maruti, Hyundai, Toyota). Go for the DSG, it's a pure bliss to drive that one.
