Skoda Rapid review |Journalmotor


Overview

The variant which I saw during the Skoda event at my society was the Top model Style which got the 1.2 litre Petrol heart that was available with a 5 speed manual transmission.This one also gets an option of a diesel heart but unfortunately the diesel engine would be discontinued from the Skoda Rapid after April 2020 due to the upcoming BS6 emission norms that would be coming to the existence and the 1.5 litre turbocharged diesel engine would also be removed from the Volkswagen vento which is the sibling of the Skoda Rapid but Still this car won my good ratings .

Exterior



The exterior looks almost similar to the Vento but if talking about the design language I would have preferred the Volkswagen Vento instead of this one as Skoda's front grille didn't interest me that much but the most impressive in the front was only the headlights which sounded amazing to me with the projector headlamps and some little elements with the LED DRLs that still makes it amazing according to the pricing which has been done on the car.However this car gets the halogen lights for a greater scattering range in the highways which helps you maintain your eyes on the road.


Besides the other things which be makes it catchy on the road is actually the glossy b pillar and the clean silver 16 inches alloys on the style variant of the car but it's actually the car which is borrowed from the Volkswagen Vento platform which got the Skoda's clothes with some little bit chrome work  and nothing much if I also include the rear because the rear and front are very common thing.



The rest things which which will actually determine the rating would be it's ride and handling quality as I didn't drove the car but still it's somehow classy as compared to the competitors but the boot space is spacious as it has 460 litres of boot space for the ones who want to move on with their mother in laws.

Interior

The interior of the Skoda rapid has also improved a lot if compared from the previous models due to treatment with features like the cruise control,7 inch touchscreen with the media, Bluetooth,
Mirrorlink,etc. And the sportier steering was very attractive thing for me in the cabin but however when I was inside the car it had offered me a decent level of comfort and a tilt adjustable steering .A traveller will surely benefit from the car especially with the decent amount of comfort and a climatronic air conditioner.

The rear seats were also comfortable and the cabin had also offered me decent amount of legroom and headroom according to my height  however it is only a perfect 4 seater as I think only smaller kids can be easily accommodated in the rear in the between .Rear ac vents also had chrome finish but for the ones who want some chilling air would benefit from the aircon vents but in terms of design and comfort it was okk and in front the driver also gets armrest with storage . The most important thing  which many people expect is the safety as rapid offers 4 airbags,abs with ebd,esc(automatic only),hhc(automatic only) and another thing is the build quality as when you hear the this sound from the door of rapid it gives a clear idea of a good build quality.my impression were good in terms of a walk around.rest depends on how a person drives it and what is purpose.
