The Skoda has its own kind of reputation of delivering cars with best combination of performance and styling. The exterior design, styling features, and the excellent color options gets a classic on the road image and asured appreciation of owning a luxury car. Inside, the cabin is largely the same on the Skoda Rapid facelift, but with a host of tweaks and new equipment on board. The sedan gets cruise control, automatic headlamps, rain sensing wipers, as well as a MirrorLink touchscreen infotainment system, restricted to the top variant and comes with AUX, USB and Bluetooth connectivity, navigation and a whole lot more. Auto climate control continues to be on offer on the sedan. On the safety front, ABS and dual front airbags are part of standard equipment.The 1.5-litre TDI now makes around 5bhp more over the outgoing Rapid, churning out 108bhp of power at 4000rpm and 250Nm of torque available between 1500-3000rpm. The motor comes paired to a 5-speed manual and a 7-speed DSG automatic transmission. The folks at Skoda India claim that the petrol engine with manual transmission achieves a fuel efficiency figure of 15.41 km/l while the petrol automatic returns 14.84 km/l. The 1.6-litre MPI four-cylinder petrol continues to be on offer which puts out 103 bhp. The engine is paired to a 5-speed manual gearbox and a 6-speed tiptronic transmission. Fuel efficiency figures for the diesel manual and automatic are 21.13 km/l and 21.72 km/l respectively.

Few limitations while comparing Car like Honda City are Key less entry, Start Stop Button, Sun Roof. If skoda was able to equip these features to the car, even the price may be increased the market demand for rapid will dramatically increase.
