  • Most useless car amongst the class

    By Venky
    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.
  • Fantastic!! What a come back skodá

    By SKC
    Fantastic front look, Best automatic DSG gearbox, uncluttered interiors other basic simply clever features. Don't expect magic but rapid has the best feature in its segment. Plus 4 yrs service pack brought me back to skoda after 6 years of my Fabia.
  • Great Car!! It was worth the wait.

    By Viral
    It's simply clever car with all basic features you are looking. The base model will not have AV system by year they have 2 airbags. For German car maker-safety is first. Simply loving my first had experience.
  • Simply clever!! Not for masses

    By Naveen Singh
    Love the car. Found it better than new Vento & Honda city. Lot of silent feature like cool glovebox, pintch glass sensors. Most importantly we liked the Sameer features & built quality. Cheers to Skoda India.
