    Is Skoda Rapid a good car to buy?

    I have a question is Skoda Rapid a good car to buy? I want to know the pros and the cons of this car and if possible can anyone compare any car which is almost as same as this car for example Hyundai Verna Fluidic. Which I think is also a good car. And I know there are many cars which are way ahead then Skoda Rapid so wanted to know if there is any?

    Yes you are right there are many cars which can be compared with Skoda Rapid like as one you said Hyundai Verna Fluidic. So let me compare these two cars to get you better view.

    Let me start from Exterior if you compare exterior of these cars Hyundai Verna Fluidic bets Skoda Rapid as Hyundai Verna is more appealing. When we talk about interior Skoda is better than Hyundai Verna as Skoda is subtle elegance and Verna has luxurious interiors. If you see engine wise 1.4 liter diesel engine is good in Skoda Rapid but 1.6 diesel engine category Verna is good. Skoda Rapid is much better than Verna Fluidic in terms of handling and performance. And in price Verna have more range then Skoda Rapid. So now you can check what all pros and cons both this cars have.

    Good comparison of both the cars I will also consider all this points like exterior, interior, engine and price and compare Skoda Rapid with Maruti SX4. In compare to any car Maruti Sx4 is bigger car in terms of Dimensions. So basically Maruti SX4 has more boot space then Skoda Rapid. But boot space is not only thing which we can consider, the plastic use in Maruti is not that good so over all. In terms of mileage and performance Skoda rapid takes a lead. But handling wise Maruti SX4 is better than Skoda Rapid. So both the cars have their own advantages and disadvantages .

    If you compare Ford Fiesta and Skoda Rapid than in spite of have extra features in Fiesta with more price so Skoda Rapid is a good car with powerful car. But Ford Fiesta is a car for users who can spend more money for great features and driving performance. But finally it all depends on you which car you want to go with.

    Hi,
    Skoda Rapid Interiors are like royal suite simply awesome and luxurious. Seats are broad and provided with ample legroom, very comfortable and soothing to the senses. Boot is sufficiently spaced too. A/C works stunning and keeps the interiors chill all the time. Features like adjustable steering with audio controls, soft gear box, and decent looking dashboard all makes it an elegant, sweet looking ride...
