Skoda Rapid to be available in 3 variants


Kaustubh Shinde, They say sooner or later your passion finds you. Sometime in late 2009, I started writing for IAB and ever since then it has been a roller coaster ride for me. An amazing experience that has taught me a lot, taken me to new places, driven some great cars and met some amazing people. When you don't find me on IAB (very rarely), you will find me either at a coffee shop or an eatery or at the nearest gadget store.Hope you enjoy IAB as much as we do!

Skoda Rapid variantsNovember 16th will see Skoda India’s entry in the already crowded C market. The Rapid, which is completely developed by the Indian subsidiary for the domestic market, will be Skoda’s answer to Ford Fiesta, Nissan Sunny, Hyundai Verna, Honda City, Fiat Linea et all.

Developed on the same platform as the VW Vento, the Rapid will be available in both petrol and diesel variants. Motorbeam has revealed a variant wise feature list of the the Skoda Rapid. The Rapid will be available in 3 variants – Active, Ambition and Elegance.

The base model (Active) will feature 14 inch steel wheels, Front and Rear power windows, rear windscreen defogger, tilt and telescopic steering wheel, power steering, height adjustable front seat belts, front center armrest and an engine immobilizer.

The mid variant (Ambition) will feature all the goodies of the Active plus ABS, front and rear foglamps, central locking, body color mirrors and door handles, driver airbag, height adjustable driver seat, rear center armrest and a rear reading lamp.

Over and above the goodies of Active and Ambition, the Elegance (the top variant) will have 15 inch alloys wheels, electrically adjustable door mirrors, dual front airbags, CD-MP3 player, front and rear speakers, automatic AC and an on board computer.

Due to the lack of many features on the base model, we believe that the Rapid will be very competitively priced against the rivals. We definitely know that that it will sit below its blood sister VW Vento. Considering the VW Vento was launched at Rs 6.99 lakhs, expect the Rapid to start with Rs 6.5 lakhs (ex Delhi).
