    thats a good scoop...i guess skoda doesn't really have a choice of being the latest entry into this segment, especially when th vento is racking up sales which is also the by product of the long waiting period for the dzire, due to the ongoing worker strikes at their plants in Manesar and Gurgaon..the pricing will dictate it success rate as skoda is a downmarket badge as compared to vw

    This Sedan is really cool. This car will be well supportive of a CD/ Mp3/ Radio Audio system with at least 4 speakers in order to deliver sharp acoustics.

    8 lacs = 40 thousand dollars means you can get a brand new holden commmodore or a ford falcon for that much

    Yes it is true. Skoda Rapid is expecting to be powered with 1598cc engine same as Vento with the same power of 105 bhp @ 5250 rpm and torque of 153 Nm @ 3800 rpm.

    even in features you can see that Skoda Rapid is expecting to have Remote Trunk/Boot Opener which is not available in Vento. And there are so many things which are expecting to come in Skoda Rapid with less price range of 680000 lakhs for base variant and 900000 for top end variant which are less than the price of Vento.

    I have gathered all the news of Skoda Rapid from CarKhabri and did the comparison from Car Comparison
