Default Re: Should one buy a Skoda Rapid or VW Vento today?

I visited both Skoda and VW showrooms. The Skoda SA said, Rapid Rider Plus stock is over (very well known already). But then he claimed, the next lot they'll receive (Ambition/Syle, etc.) is going to be the last! The Matte edition is also going to be the closing sell for Rapid.

The same thing was iterated by VW SA about Skoda - Rapid manufacturing has stopped.

Are these dealership rumours or there is some truth? Can people in the know, shade some light?

No idea. When I bought the Rapid a couple of months ago, the SA told the same thing. Zac on twitter has been elusive. When asked if the Slavia will be the replacement for the Rapid, he said the new car will be positioned above the Rapid but has not given a concrete answer on whether the Rapid will be discontinued

Bangalore OTR with discounts came to 15.8L.
Benefit from 8 years old Alto K10 exchange with bonus came to 2.3L. Finally had to pay around 13.5L - which I felt is a good deal for a top end automatic!
