Overview

UPDATED: Read detailed roadtest of the Rapid (click to read)

The Skoda Rapid is a well engineered mid-size sedan that is available with a wide range of variants to choose from. It is offered with a choice of two engine options and three gearbox options. There is also a Black Package version available in top-end variants to make it stand out and look sporty. The Rapid is based on the Volkswagen Vento platform, although, Skoda has worked on the styling of the Rapid to differentiate it from it’s VW counterpart.

The Rapid is a well built vehicle and feels premium in it’s segment. It comes loaded with an adequate equipment list. The Rapid offers comfortable seating for all occupants with good amount of leg room, knee room and shoulder room. The seats are supportive and comfortable. The interiors have a dual tone layout, quality of materials used are good and so is fit and finish.

The Skoda Rapid offers a comfortable ride and has good drive dynamics. The steering is light at low speeds and weighs up nicely. The suspension does a good job of dealing with road undulations, although with just one occupant on board, the ride could be more comfortable.

The 1.5 liter turbocharged diesel engine develops 105PS of power at 4,400 rpm and produces 250Nm of torque between 1,500 - 2,500 rpm. The engine feels refined and offers good real world driveability. The engine is available with a five-speed automatic transmission or a seven-speed double-clutch automatic gearbox. The petrol engine on offer in the Rapid is a 1.6 litre engin unit that develops 105PS of power @ 5,250 rpm, and 153Nm of torque @ 3,800 rpm. This engine can be had with either a five-speed manual transmission or a six-speed automatic gearbox.  

Interior

Familiarity with the VW family continues on the inside the cabin as well. The layout and switch gear is identifiable as part of the family parts bin and design language. The overall airy feel on the inside and space, especially for tall people. Once in the driver’s seat, the four-spoke steering feels good to hold and the twin pod speedometer console with white dials with the driver information display appealing to the eyes.

The central console gets easy to operate audio system (no USB, only Aux-in and SD card support) and air-con system while you also appreciate the central arm-rest between the front seats. However, depending on how tall you are and how you drive, this does interfere with your left arm while shifting gears. Rear seat comfort and space is impressive though what lets down the package is the high transmission tunnel which means fitting a 5th person with be a little tough. Good points include rear air-con vents, cup holder below the vent, central arm-rest and an ergo-lever to slide the front co-driver’s seat while being seated at the rear – perfect for those who like being chauffeured! 

Exterior

 The Rapid has a well crafted over all profile, but some elements such as the large grille and headlamps look a tad out place from the overall sleek profile of the car.

Mileage Running Cost

  The diesel manual has a claimed efficiency of 21.14 per cent while the diesel automatic's efficiency is rated at 21.66 km/l. The manual petrol has a claimed efficiency of 15 km/l while the automatic petrol model has it's efficiency rated at 14.3 km/l.

Comfort Suspension

  Slow speed ride with a single person on board might not be very impressive with sharp imperfection and pot holes being felt easily. However, as speeds and the number of people in the car rise, its ride quality keeps become better and better! You can simply put the car into bad stretches or off the road while overtaking on narrow roads without having to worry about the occupants being thrown around. The same goes for the superb high speed manners – the Rapid feels rock solid even at over 150km/h speeds.

Engine Performance

 The 1.5 liter turbocharged diesel engine develops 105PS of power at 4,400 rpm and produces 250Nm of torque between 1,500 - 2,500 rpm. The engine feels refined and offers good real world driveability. The engine is available with a five-speed automatic transmission or a seven-speed double-clutch automatic gearbox. The petrol engine on offer in the Rapid is a 1.6 litre engin unit that develops 105PS of power @ 5,250 rpm, and 153Nm of torque @ 3,800 rpm. This engine can be had with either a five-speed manual transmission or a six-speed automatic gearbox.

 

Braking Safety

 The steering is of the electric variety (EPS) and hence expectedly very light at crawling speeds. It does weigh up nicely as speeds increase but it could be more confident. That said, the Rapid won’t really be driven in a very enthusiastic manner and this is where the car seems to tick all the right boxes. The Rapid has ABS with EBD and has driver and passenger airbags

    Skoda Rapid has redefined class and performance

    It has been about a year now that I am driving my Skoda Rapid. I must admit that before buying this car I was a bit skeptical about it, but the test drive blew my mind. I have read the online reviews and the comparisons done my veteran drivers and other customers and I must say that it is very Read More

    Not a good deal in its segment

    I bought this car last year and was really happy about it. But eventually I came to realise that this Skoda is definitely not the best buy in this price bracket. The car looks very nice and also has a comfortable cabin. However, when it comes to the overall performance and fuel efficiency, the Rapid fails badly. It is a Read More
