First drive review: Skoda Rapid 1.6 TDI 105PS.

Autocar review the TDI!

Quote:
Rapid exudes precisely the sort of style youd expect. Inside, its almost a non-style, so functional, clear and basic are its dials and materials.
Quote:
Its also spacious tall adults can sit behind tall adults quite comfortably
Quote:
The 1.6 TDI motor rouses to a bit of a grumble, louder I think than the class average, but still acceptable. And the Rapid retains the pleasing control weights and characteristics that are a feature of other Skodas: its all positive yet light, easy yet precise. The (five-speed) gearbox stirs slickly, and engine response is positive. Skoda says the diesel Rapid is good for 0-62mph acceleration in 10.6sec and that it can return 64.2mpg

Skoda seems to have more to offer. It shows impressive levels of space and good performance and economy for its price. Thats where wed point our recommendation

Eagle,

Lovely car really. Looks more contemporary than its VW sibling.

DO you have any idea when they are going to launch it in India ? And under what badge name would it be launched ? Rapid itself ?

No idea about the launch in India dates wise.

I did have a chat with the people at Skoda and they did say it would be launched soon. I am assuming it would be launched after the new Octavia releases!

I would be inline to buy just for its looks!

Hi eagle,

Thanks for the reply. Do you have any pics and price details of the new Octavia ? i had one in 2004-05 period and the car felt solid through out its use. I loved that car even though back seat travel on long journeys were hell on earth.

No idea bout the pricing of the New Octavia. I can find that out though. The pricing and spec sheet in Sweden is as below.

Looks expensive from the sheet!

Smile Re: European Skoda Rapid Spotted; All new car based on Mission L concept

Hi there Rapid Fans and Enthusiasts,

I have been digging deep on the internet regarding launch of Skoda Rapid Euro-Spec, but I haven't found any credible source that confirms it.

Please share your thoughts & views on when do you think Euro-speced rapid will come to India. I have been longing for that car for 3 years. Settling on any other car seems like a compromise.

Please help.
Cheers.
