somehow quite doesn’t match! the name and the design , RAPID hmmm. not so much.
my little skoda laura…
It’s almost vento…same engine n design…. skoda should at least change it’s design… people will go for vento not rapid…
this one will be not earning in the market.. please change its look than it will be sexo.
Rear lights are copied from fiesta.
Add a comment…
Wow what a CAR?
Looks like vento had proposed to fabia.. and as a result Rapid has born.
Though it is same as the Vento , then also people would run for the diesel version… Why cant they bring something different?
Skoda must try something new instead of those old looks!
final yr mechanical students can design dis!
doesn’t look cool!
Stupid car waste of time!
Skoda always manufactured the beautiful cars.
Dont go by looks brother, Skoda kicks ass…….
NOT MUSCULAR AS THERE OLD SEDANS……
may be it cant compete its rival in her own segment.
ii can gain success only with competitive price tag and list of attractive features.
HMMMM…mixed bag…not as bad as I had thought…if the pricing is right skoda might pull a rabbit out of its hat…specially the diesel version…Skoda does have a brand following in India and that combined with good pricing can bring great fortunes skoda’s way….
maja nai aya…….ll nt do ll in market…….frm bth am wth vento…..skoda lost its muscular luks in dis….huh.
these are all of same of volkswagan family.. so desing s nt a pblm
I like the car bt it little big in length frm back.
Too common design , front like fabia , rear like fiesta , vento engine. doubtfull if it wud be successful. Skoda needs to improve on service network as well.
neither skoda nor VW has a dealership in my city, I guess I should not care for either.
Karthik Dhananjayan : ya dude . . you can feel the audi in new vw jetta . . .
it’s look like vento? but front view is goood.
Nobody likes this :’(
ya,definately it vl b a gud choice.coz skoda is a brand image compared to volkwagen or honda.but it shud b less maintainance car.
skoda. . .no way
Oh kal showroom ja ke dekhage then comment karage
fabia+vento+octavia/Rider = Rapid

Hrishi Acharya : I totally agree with you..

Switch off the AC button when the car is cool enough. This applies to cars without climate control. If the car is equipped with automatic climate control, set the car to optimum temperatures to prevent the compressor from running for a long time
Amruth Ganesh LOL Even the ARAI certified mileage is lesser than that
what’s the meaning of carpool?
Akash Shetty go google it
Smartly use the AC means we should avoid keeping AC ON on signals,you can also keep AC power at min here… lower rpm lower AC…at higher rpm it doesn’t matter
thanks DWS for nice tips.
Even Better, Keep the Damn Rickshaws off the road, No congestion, No road rage, No frustrated Drivers, No Bottle necks, even the BEST drivers are very calm and better fuel average, I realised our problem really is Very High percentage of Idiots on the Street, and not an inadequate road infrastructure.
I try to switch off engine when stopping at a light or when not in use for more than 1 min. I try to avoid minimum use of AC. This can also help in saving some amount of fuel.
gud thinking g.
MY CITY GIVES 17-18 AVERAGE….
Bye Bicycle…. good exercise…. no petrol… no toll… no pollution…. no parking charges…
please give some tips for byke riders also…………………….
@ bicycle. Gud idea.
Abhi Jeet Yes… DEAR Abhi… Its100% True FACT!!!
I inform the Same Fact to My HONDA CITY Dealer…he also shocked….
Alsofrom My HONDA CITY , i got average of 19Km/Ltr for 750 Km of Run from PUNE to NAGPUR in HOT weather of MAY 2010.
But it can happen only if you
(1)put soft pressure on Accelerator.. pressurize the accelerator only…[Read more]
a fuel and money consuming honda is a myth!!! my city needs a servicing after 10000 kms and it cost less than my santro!!! and its a fact!!
same experience here…
My Honda City 2010 is more efficient than my Hyundai I10 (1.2 kappa) 2009…
From i10 i can get max. 17 km/ltr (with WIDER TYRE set)..
Its all depends upon the Engine’s Power to Weight Ratio, Tyres, Gear ratio, Aerodynamics, Suspensions etc. etc.
@Abhi Jeet,@Amruth Ganesh,@Ajay Srinivas Raghavan…
Did YOU ever have a chance to drive HONDA CITY i-vetec (NEW model)??
Dont confuse between Honda CITY and Honda CIVIC…
ARAI approved CITY for 16.6 Km/ltr
and CIVIC for 11.2 KM/Ltr.
And for your KIND INFORMATION, i will soon upload the Photo of my HONDA City’s Digital meter showing more…[Read more]
Carpool: if more than one persons daily travelling from same way than instead of using separate vehicle use one
interesting to read but very difficult to follow.
thanxs nice tips.
let me follow it……….
Best useful Tips.
I too get 17.5 kmpl sometimes from my honda city iv tec.
drivin at de speed of 40-50 wil give u gr8 milage…
Alto k10 owners are still, least worried..!!!
Hey… for bike owners… use better engine oils… timely change the oils and use high performance oils… they improve performance and better accelaration…. Maitain an optimum speed always while riding, for eg: for FZ or Fazer, you get 40+ only if u control and ride at speeds of 45 and 50…. 60 and above dips the efficiency….
And better, dont use performance kits and filters… they can drink the petrol sometimes that when you sometimes hit above 90 or above, the efficiency might be way below 20 sometimes…
24.6 kmpl on verna crdi 1.6- highway
29.3 kmpl on highway for my new Dzire VDi & 25.7 kmpl in city driving… following all the tips for fuel efficiency. Never drive above 80kmph.
Could u give me an idea about fuel injector cleaners. How to use them and their price?. Thanks in advance.
I prefer the Maruti Suzuki Swift !!!!!!!!!!
bro u should go fr new swift or i 20. . . .
hyundai i20 ticks d right boxes..
I think Honda Jazz wud b a gud proposition with it’s current availability at a reduced Price and fulfilling all the requirements of good looks, spaciousness & luxury…plus Honda’s reliability & refinement!!
I THINK BEAT DIESEL N SWIFT R GUD CHOICE …..BEAT IS THE BEST BECOZ COMPANY GIVES THREE YRS WARRANTY WH INCLUDES SPARE PARTS TOO….
i’ve already said Swift.But Vista is Good at space and comfort. Ford Figo is good too with excellent balanc between ride and handling.And yes i20 has all you want but is pricey !Beat doesn’ suit you requirement !
Volkswagen Polo 1.2L Diesel Variants:
Indica Vista for space, Maruti Swift for handling and fuel efficiency, Ford Figo for all-round competency and Volkswagen Polo for looks.
go for new maruti suzuki swift deisel.
I think prashik should go wid i20 diesel…..loaded ful of features, lots of space inside..it has got gud average….
swift is also gud option..bt waitin period spoils it….polo is bad on maintenance…..
Honda Jazz for sure, if he wants a petrol hatchback… or swift/ritz zdi if he wants a diesel hatch.
according to your budget,, my choices for you will be on the top i20..just go and opt for this car wihtout any hindrance coz that car is one the best in every aspect you r lookin for…if not a hyundai fan, then go for swift or polo..
Chevrolet Beat Diesel rocks!
I think its swift suitable for u in hatchbak.
go for ritz diesel………..
go for swift diesel.
That’s a tricky one…BEST HATCH…does not exist….Depends on which city he’s from and how’s the service of various brands in that city (exception Maruti)….If he wants a htch NOW….then buy the VISTA…..It is by far the best vfm car out there right now…better than Swift…YES I said it. While the swift is a better looker, better handler…[Read more]
Before u select any car please Check the plastics used inside that car…It has to be value for money that u r paying….I took a Test Drive for Ritz LDI today….Avg Exp. Checked out Swift 2011 still gives you a crunchy feel on the rear seats…Its plastic sucks…just compare it with polo 1.2 Di. variants…It is any day better than Figo.…[Read more]
go for I 20 petrol or diesel model a real value for money car with better ASS compare to swift its a spacios car and offcourse a good lookig car I suggets u I 20.
Polo has razor blade handling, the best in the segment n feels like a large car… Not only looks…
I10 is also gud but it may hav a little space but gud in performance and features.
Why a Hatch for your Budget, when you can go for the Verito- excellent on highways- a diesel with Broad front seats and comfortable….a 600km journey in Venezuela for about 5 hours felt as fresh as we started in with loads of luggage and 4+1…makes most sense to buy 1. The top model has just 1 airbag and no faltoo gimmicks.
go 4 i20. its awsum
helo shivash..m frm mumbai..n more will drive car in city only which obviously u knw traffic n all..i 20 iz on my mind..so should i go for it ..?? i want car wid low maintenance .spacious ,comfortable driving n yes good mileage diesel around 18 to 20 in city..
Just realised …u have mentioned your requirements…well…hmm 6-7 lakhs is an excellent budget…You can go for the top end ZDi it comes loaded now with all goodies….a bit pricey though…The ZDi ex showroom is comparable to the I20 sportz CRDI (carwale.com) ….now the ZDi has ABS, AIRBAGS, CLIMATE CONTROL, MARUTI AFTER SALES AND IT’S A…[Read more]
Shivansh Sarthak Jindal shivansh…ur cment on the safety features in i20 is wrong..totally wrong..go and check out that i2o sportz crdi offers more abs and 6 air bags while zdi offers only two..and if you talk abt trust,well bro..hyundai and maruti in today’s time stand equally in the auto market..and i20 will offer more power than zdi with same…[Read more]
Sonu Nagpal Hi buddy…it is not like you are right n I AM WRONG…lol…At the price point of a Swift ZDi the i20 does not offer the same features…..Looks are better no doubt…the swift handles WAYYY BETTER….actually all the others have better handling (except the vista ) …rest all points u can read….Prashik please do take a test…[Read more]
new swift rockzzzzzzzz.
