Skoda Rapid Test Drive Reviews

Looks an average car from outside. Skoda brand logo gives some appeal but looks are still average as compared to other models like Honda City, Hyundai available at similar range. In new Skoda Rapid, features still do not match with Honda and Hyundai because of lack of leather seats, touch screen and reverse parking cameras. It pinches to the buyer as he is still paying almost the same price. The steering controls are not user friendly and dash-board information is also very confusing.I have just bought this car yesterday and first day on Road, ABS signal is always on. Which is BIG LET DOWN for me. Called the center from where i bought this vehicle, they said, don’t worry sir, but haven’t bothered to call back for further rectifying the problem.

Space is good as driver sits comfortably with space to move around and change sitting positions during long drives. Rear space is also fine. The luggage space in the boot is the smallest in its segment which is a pain if you have three suitcases.

I have driven Honda and Hyundai both and can say that Skoda matches them both in comfort. As you don’t feel the bumps much  unless they are really big.

Exterior Nice and decent. Interior (Features, Space & Comfort) Good. Engine Performance, Fuel Economy and Gearbox Like any other car in the segment. Ride Quality & Handling.Exterior No over extra styles, simply superb design. Interior (Features, Space & Comfort) Comfort is simply awesome. Very Good legroom for both front and back.
