Cons : price will be decisive factor


Look and Style Currently, I am an owner of Skoda Fabia from past six months. Now I am looking to buy another car for my wife. Since, I have a hatchback, so I am in mood to go for a sedan. After driving Skoda Fabia I became a huge fan of Skoda cars due to its mind blowing exteriors and high standard comfortable interiors. After research I found that Skoda is going to launch a new sedan Skoda Rapid in the market and the exterior design of all new Skoda Rapid is based on Volkswagen Vento. Comfort Being an experienced person of Skoda cars, I believe that Skoda cars are best in class to provide world class comfort and luxury to the customers. Based on my experience with Skoda Fabia, I believe this new sedan will offer the same sort of space like Volkswagen Vento. Pickup One of my friends has Volkswagen Vento that accelerates well to 100 Kmph in few seconds. Since the car shares same concept of Volkswagen Vento I believe it also sports similar pick up. Mileage From various websites I found that this new Skoda Rapid will introduce a new Mission L concept to the market which might help Skoda to deliver decent mileage. Best Features After experiencing, both Skoda Fabia and Volkswagen Vento, I am very much interested to know what more features Skoda will add in its new sedan. Since I feel both the cars are upto the mark with their elegant looks and comfortable interiors. The suspension and ground clearance of these cars are outstanding. I think Skoda Rapid will continue to flow with the tide. Needs to improve Too early to comment on the areas of improvement. Overall Experience Overall after my research and experienced with Skoda cars I am waiting enthusiastically for the launch of this sedan. Although the car is fully based on Volkswagen Vento, I prefer to go with Skoda Rapid as it is expected that Skoda will price this sedan lower than Vento. Since I will receive the same experience, might be better but at lower price, then why should I go with expensive one.

    Both are good Rapid have more features than vento Rapid have more turning radius than vento Both cars have better build quality but vento is more stronger than rapid Rapid has seating comfort vento has more boot space I prefer Vento in petrol tsi Skoda rapid in diesel AT

    I am myself trying to decide whether I buy Vento or wait for Rapid. I am told that there is some service problem with Skoda Cars may be due to problem in availability of parts. I will like to satisfy myself on this count. Since I use a driver I am looking for rear seat comfort. The width of rear seat of Veto is relatively less.

    Go to vento

    Since You Are Very Much Interested In Buying Skoda Rapid,I Think That Volgswagen Vento Is Better As German Cars Are The Best And The Volgswagen Vento Has Many Exciting Features Which Skoda Rapid Does Not Have.
