In petrol version average mileage of 15kmpl can be expected and it is 14kmpl with automatic transmission. In diesel version claimed mileage is 20kmpl. In actual usage, upto 12kmpl and 18kmpl can be expected in petrol and diesel versions.

The Skoda rapid comes in 24 different variants, with two fuel options and two different engines 1498 cc diesel engine, with 103 BHP power and 153 Nm torque mated with manual or automatic transmission option. The vehicle is a very successful model of Skoda and provides a very comfortable and punchy drive. The car with the petrol engine gives a mileage of 15 KMPL as per ARAI, but in real time it gives a mileage of 11-12 KMPL only.
I am agreeing with the above statement, The Skoda rapid 1.5 TDI plus is my car and it is having an engine of 1.5L with the displacement of 1498 cc along with a power of 104 PS and 250 Nm torque equipped with a 5-speed manual transmission. The car gives a mileage of 14 KMPL in the city and almost 18 KMPL over the highways but as per ARAI the actual mileage should be 21.14 KMPL, which looks imaginary in real time.
You have said it well dear, the mileage figure of 21 is not real at all. I am having a 1.5 L TDI engine which never gave me a mileage more than 15 KMPL ever. So there is no chance of a mileage figure like 21 at all. Actually mileage is factor which comes after a lot of conditions, the way how you are driving, road conditions and most importantly where are you driving, whether it is a trafficked city or open highways. I have tried it riding on highway within the speed of 60 KMPL but still no luck.
Not agree with you guys on mileage, Skoda’s rapid is not god on mileage on any of its variants, whether it is 1498 cc petrol or 1598 cc diesel. One more thing I have never seen such a mileage before on any of the model of cars having similar mileage on both diesel and petrol. I own an AMT version of 1498 cc petrol engine and it gives such a pathetic mileage. The car delivers 10 KMPL in the city with AC running and around 13 KMPL with ac over the mileage.
I am not agree with the answer above me, Rapid is good on mileage, I agree it doesn’t give a mileage of 21 KMPL as per ARAI but still it is not that much bad. The figures written above seem to be the mileage of petrol engine. I am sharing my experience with Rapid 1.5 TDI CR elegance Black package and it delivers a mileage of almost 17 KMPL on average regardless of whether I am driving on highway or inside the city.
