2015 Skoda Rapid
The 2015 Skoda Rapid has been so successful that the company is thinking about revising its production targets in the coming years. The car is aimed mainly at private buyers and has everything right about it. It gives good value for money and if you’re looking for an all-rounder family car then 2015 Skoda Rapid is just the right car for you.
When it comes to styling Skoda Rapid is a mixture of sleek design and chunky looks. It would not be wrong to say that this car is one of the most practical ones available in the market today. It doesn’t aim to turn heads but settle into people’s consciousness quietly. It’s a 4.48-meter long vehicle, which looks and feels perfect. Another feature worth mentioning here is the light-weight design of all-new Skoda Rapid. It weighs only 2535 pounds, considerably lighter than rest of the cars in the same league. The light weight of the vehicle also contributes to lower mileage, which we are going to discuss later in this article.
The seats are flat and not very comfortable but are nicely positioned. The visibility for the driver is excellent. Steering is large and very easy to grab and control; just like steering should be. There is a plain radio, which can be upgraded to an all0functional screen. It would be unjust to pass a verdict on 2015 Skoda Rapid’s interior without considering the price tag it carries. At such an affordable price, there is nothing to compare about an average sort of interior of the car. There is enough space for passengers at the back; one downside, however, is the fact that rare seats don’t get completely flat when folded. Having said that, you can still stuff in a lot of bags while traveling on longer routes. Four adults can easily occupy inside the all-new 2015 Skoda Rapid.
Talking about the engine, the 2015 Skoda Rapid is fitted with a 1.2-litre petrol engine. The engine is capable of producing 82 hp and can reach 60 mph from a standstill position in around 11 seconds. The best thing about this vehicle is probably its mileage which is around 40 mpg in the city and 49 mpg while driving smooth on the highways.
Moving on to the handling, everything about the vehicle is smooth and easy. Of course, you should not expect BMW type handling and comfort in Skoda. The company wanted to build a car with average handling and comfort and succeeded in doing in the shape of 2015 Skoda Rapid.
Talking about customer satisfaction, the executives at Skoda admitted that it performs better than its sibling Volkswagen. 2015 Skoda Rapid is a worthy car (that’s what the early testers think) It might not have the spark of a sports car but delivers exactly what is expected out of a practical vehicle. To sum it up it has excellent mileage, affordable price tag and average looks and performance.
