Which is better option Honda Amaze or New Rapid?
By: Faiza on 5 august 2014
Honda Amaze features 1.2L i-Vtec petrol engine delivering power of 88PS. It is also available in diesel version delivering power of 100PS and Torque of 200Nm.This is a good power in the segment of cars.Price of Honda Amaze ranges from 6Lakh to 9 Lakh depending upon the variant and fuel version choosen. Skoda Rapid is available in 1.6L engine in both petrol and diesel versions. However power in petrol version is 105PS and Torque of 153Nm. In diesel version 105PS power and Torque is 250Nm. Clearly Skoda Rapid is way ahead of Amaze in all parameters. Though Amzaze has better fuel efficiency outputs, Skoda Rapid scores better in all other parametrs. Hence makes a better selection.

Honda amaze is having 35 liters fuel tank capacity but Skoda rapid having 55 liters fuel tank. There is a big difference is engine and other latest technologies being used between these two cars which cannot let amaze come even nearby to rapid. Rapid is having 1.5 and 1.6 L engine option where amaze is having only 1.2L engine option. But Honda amaze is ahead in mileage and gives an average of 21 in cities and 25 over highways where as rapid gives 18 in cities and 21 on highways.
I am agreeing with the above statement Skoda rapid is way ahead of Honda ahead in terms of the features but amaze is a good car as well. Honda gives spectacular service and Skoda is very bad in service option. The mileage makes Skoda inferior in the comparison and Honda amazing is winning the title over there. But Rapid is way ahead in terms of comfort, engine and other features it offers.
Skoda Rapid is the winner in the segment because of the features and engine capacity it has but for me amaze is better, as one of the major challenges of Indian car companies is fuel economy and the price. Both come in sedan section but amaze top model comes only in 9 Lacks whereas Skoda top model price is 12 lacks. I prefer a car which gives a better mileage and can be bought in fewer prices. So I went for amaze. It has fewer features than Rapid but I love my car as it is not expensive.
