        Rapid Expert Review

        Opening

         The Skoda Rapid has been in our market for the past five years, but its success rate hasn’t been what the Czech manufacturer was hoping for. Buyers primarily preferred the ever dependable Honda City or the flamboyant Hyundai Verna or the value for money Maruti Suzuki Ciaz. The fact that it felt too similar to the Volkswagen Vento and people apprehension over Skoda’s aftersales service quality further put it out of preference.

         Now though, Skoda has launched the updated Rapid and the changes aren’t just skin deep. You also get the upgraded 1.5-litre diesel unit which makes more power than before. To address its aftersales issue, Skoda is also offering a comprehensive 4-year maintenance plan with the car. So are these factors enough to get the buyers back in Skoda showroom? We drove the car in picturesque Mussoorie to find answers 

        Appearance Exterior

         

        One look and you will notice the peculiar familiarity of the new Rapid with the Skoda Octavia and the Superb. The fascia is more slender than the old car and it now features sleeker headlamps like in the Octavia. These projector units also feature DRLs that just adds to the Rapid’s more premium looks. The signature moustache grille is carried over, below which is a redesigned bumper with restyled air dams and fog lamps. Moving to the side of the car, the only change is the chrome embellishment on the door handles. At the back, you get smoked tail lights, a slim spoiler and a chrome slat on the tail gate. All these changes have made the Rapid look fresher and sharper than the outgoing model.

        Appearance Interior

         

        Unlike the exterior, the cabin layout in the Rapid facelift stays more or less the same. So you get the same ergonomically designed dashboard from the Vento and everything falls to hand easily. Traditionally Skoda have always been quite generous with equipment levels and this top-spec Style variant is no different. That said, it still misses the push start-stop button and a reversing camera. However, you do get rear parking sensors and premium features like rain-sensing wipers, auto headlamps, electronically retractable OVRMs, auto-dimming IRVM, one-touch all-four power windows with anti-pinch and cruise control, which are absent in most of its rivals. The biggest addition is the 6.5-inch touch screen system. This capacitive touch display is clear, quick enough and is easy to scroll through. The audio system, which gets Skoda’s new Mirrorlink system, does the job well while the speakers have a good sound output. Dual front airbags and ABS are standard safety features across the trims.

        Thanks to the tilt and telescopic steering wheel adjustment, finding a comfortable driving position is easy. The front seats are comfortable with good side bolstering and generous thigh support. Similar is the case in the second row, which offers great space and a well-designed bench. Thanks to the flat floor, generous knee room and wide cabin three people can sit here in good comfort. The Rapid like before is very practical and it boasts of thoughtfully designed storage spaces and loads of cup and bottle holders too. On paper the 460-litre boot sounds a bit less, but it is well shaped and can take your weekend’s luggage with ease. Ergonomically the only grouse we had with the Rapid was the front centre armrest, which is placed too high and fouls with your elbow every time you make a gearshift. Like before the overall quality of materials in the cabin is good and everything feels well screwed together.  

        Performance Drive

         

        We reviewed the new 1.5-litre TDI diesel paired to a five-speed manual. It also can be had with an optional seven-speed DSG transmission. Then there is also a petrol variant powered by a 1.6-litre MPI unit mated to either a five-speed manual or six-speed automatic gearbox. Start the Rapid facelift's updated diesel engine, and it settles down to the same clattery idle as before. Thanks to the update, the power output has now gone up from 105bhp to 110bhp but the torque figure of 250Nm remains the same. It clearly felt more responsive than the old unit and there is loads of pulling power from as low as 1,500rpm. Such is the flexibility of this motor that you can get away with being in a higher gear at crawling speeds, which makes it quite stress-free to drive. Go past 2,000rpm however and this motor really gets in its stride, as it pulls relentlessly to around 4,500rpm, post which the power tapers off. The five speed gearbox is quite direct but the clutch action feels too heavy and long. Thankfully the torquey motor doesn’t warrant too many gearshifts to make quick progress.

         Driving around slow moving traffic and by lanes, we really appreciated the direct and easy to twirl steering which makes it easy to maneuver. Low speed ride is absorbent and pot-hole infested roads were also dismissed without any problem. But large road imperfections do make their presence felt in the cabin, as the suspension thuds through them. On the highway, the Rapid displays good stability and the comfortable ride makes it an able cruiser. Over undulating surfaces it does tend to bounce a bit and a flatter ride would have been welcomed. Around twisty sections, the Rapid feels willing and the direct steering, good body control and loads of grip gives you lot of confidence. The brakes too offered good bite and stopping power felt more than adequate.

        Conclusion

         Thanks to modern creature comforts, good ride and a powerful diesel engine, Skoda has surely put forth a competitive package. It still has the old cars robust build and material quality is really good too. So in a way it should be just right for most buyers even if it might not exceed expectations of some. Skoda is also revamping its after-sales service and now has well thought offers for buyers. The Rapid is being offered with a four-year warranty, road-side assist and maintenance package, all-inclusive in the ex-showroom Delhi prices that start at Rs 9.49 lakh. So the competitive pricing with added benefits does make the updated Rapid a more lucrative buy.

        About Skoda Rapid

        Summary

        Skoda has tweaked its entry-level sedan, the Rapid, again. The C-segment sedan was introduced back in November 2011 and since then has been tweaked and updated regularly. While most of the updates were technical and some added vinyl, this tweak is a proper facelift that matches the new face of Skoda cars.

        The C-segment sedan competes with its sibling, the Volkswagen Vento along with the Maruti Suzuki Ciaz, Honda City, Hyundai Verna, Nissan Sunny and Renault Scala. Skoda cars are known for their build quality and the Rapid also has a nice ride and handling package.

        Further to this, read Skoda Rapid Road Test details by our expert.

        Exterior

        While the body shell remains the same, the Rapid gets cosmetic upgrades. The new Skoda Rapid is based on the company’s new design philosophy. The front sports a asharp design with rectangular headlights and a restyled grille. It gets LED DRLs standard across the range. The fenders and the front bumpers have been redesigned for a modern appeal. The bumper at the rear has been smoothened out on the edges for a neat finish. The sides resemble the current generation but the car features new alloy wheels to complement the new look. The Rapid also gets electronically adjustable and foldable ORVMs.

        Interior

        The Skoda Rapid interior has always been functional and now comes in black and beige. The new model gets Climatronic-automatic AC with dust and pollen filter and rear AC vents. The Skoda Rapid gets a touchscreen infotainment system with MirrorLink and reverse parking sensors with a camera option, cruise control and rain sensing wipers. It gets height adjustable driving seat with steering mounted audio controls and cruise control.

        In terms of safety, apart from the in-built structural rigidity, the new Rapid offers dual front airbags and ABS with EBD as standard across the range.

        Engine and Transmission

        The new Skoda Rapid retains the existing engine options in India. The 1.6-litre petrol engine generates around 104bhp of power and 153Nm of torque and will be offered in a five-speed manual and a six-speed automatic transmission. The diesel, on the other hand, will continue to be offered with a 1.5-litre engine that now generates 109bhp of power, and it will come mated to a five-speed manual or a six-speed automatic transmission option.

        MIleage

        The 1498 cc Diesel - powered variant delivers a fuel economy of 19 kmpl in city and 21 kmpl on highways, while the Petrol variant offers a mileage of 13 kmpl on urban roads and 15 kmpl and freeways, respectively.

          Whats Good

          I really liked how the car look and the paint work on it. the strong lines which makes the car look stylish indeed. Seats are quite comfortable. Ride experience is smooth and does gives you please offcourse for it being a German.

          What Can Improve

          Skoda can totally look forward to do the interior again due the interior does not feel anymore premium comparatively to the other existing rivals. it lacks the modern and feels outdated. The car does lacks in the interior quality for example. the a/c vents are extremely fragile that it was the first time I saw an a/c vent broke which happened in my own car. You can here the loosen panels that too for a car. Its just the overall quality doesn't stands up for what you'd expect from the brand.

          A preferable ride for those who look for pleasure yet got to compromise with the interior quality a little bit.

          They should know how to respect a customer. The customer care center at Aurangabad has to be more responsive. The local dealer is not bothered about their directive. The aggrieved customer doesnot know where to post their complaint. The Aurangabad office simply forward the customer representation to the dealer back without going through it. A good car is handled by unprofessional people.

          A separate lock near the existing latch of the doors( as seen in other cars like Honda city, Suzuki) are required for safety. The rear A/c vent should have provision to close the air in case no rear passengers. Since the wiper controls are provided (wrongly) at right side ( unlike most of the other cars ) it should have a separate switch on the dash to cut off all wiper operation to avoid inadvertent movement of wiper blade on dry windshield and thereby getting scratches on it. Unfortunately the light controls are at the left which is very inconvenient as the left hand is already required for gear change also. In emergency when ever you want to give flash to a incoming car your right middle finger pulls the wiper ( as all other cars) and wiper sweeps on the dry windshield. Most of the Skoda cars you can see scratches on the glass. The story becomes worse with a new driver. The power supply to horn could have been provided directly instead of through Ignition.
