It depends on what you want from your car. EcoSport and Duster are SUV’s while Skoda Rapid is a compact sedan. The EcoSport and Rapid look attractive but the Duster definitely has best presence.

The EcoSport Trend and Rapid Ambition have very posh and sophisticated insides while the Renault Duster feels very simplistic. The Duster’ steering, only adjusts for rake but not for reach, so finding a good driving position is a lot easier in Ecosport Trend Plus and Rapid Ambition. When it comes to space, Duster offers best shoulder room and visibility, while in EcoSport and Rapid the three adults would find the rear a squeeze.
Also, in terms of luggage compartment, Duster has a largest boot.

When it comes to features, the EcoSport Trend Plus is the best equipped of the three, it gets additional features like reverse camera, follow me home headlamps, DRLs and GPS Navigation, these features are missing on other two. On the safety front again Ecosport is best equipped, as apart from the features already available on the Duster and Rapid, it also offers EBD, Hill Hold Control, and Traction Control features.

If we compare the performance, the 1.5 liter engine of EcoSport produces more power than 1.5 liter engine of Duster RXS and 1.6 liter engine of Rapid Ambition. But all three are more or less on par when it comes to mileage.

In city driving conditions, the EcoSport is effortless to drive and is less tiring compared other two. While Duster is best among three for highway driving, its handling & high speed stability is very impressive.

So, finally in my opinion, if you prefer attractive interior, longer feature list and a car mainly for city commute then EcoSport Trend Plus would be the best choice, and if you prefer space, road presence, impressive ride & handling and a SUV for better off-road and highway driving then Duster RXS AT would be the best choice and if you want to buy a sedan for city commute then go for Rapid Ambition.
