With the cost, the features available in the vehicle is very less. Leave alone other things the car is not having even car stereo. One has to purchase extra everything beginning with stereo, reverse sensors, navigation etc. Compared to the similar cars in the class it is the most useless user-friendly vehicle.

Skoda Rapid Facelift Review

Skoda Rapid Facelift Review

Like the Octavia, the Skoda Rapid has also been an underrated car and we strongly believe that the Czech based car manufacturer should have introduced this facelift at least a year ago, but well, better late than never. Read Skoda Rapid Review in Detail

New Skoda Rapid Diesel Automatic Review

New Skoda Rapid Diesel Automatic Review

Today, I had the opportunity to drive the updated Rapid, which is actually the same car only with a new engine and a new transmission on the 'optional' list. The new Rapid gets a 1.5-litre TDI diesel engine mated to a 7-speed DSG automatic that also underpins the updated VW Vento. Read Skoda Rapid Review in Detail
