Ashwin (Guest)'s review on Skoda Rapid Ambition 1.6 TDI CR MT Plus
Year of Manufacture : 2012 | Driven no. of Kms. : 11000
- Pros: powerful engine, high speed stability, handles brilliantly, aggressive stance, superior comfort, excellent driving comfort and driving dynamics
- Cons: loads of features missing compared to the rivals
to start off about this czech beauty, it looks amazing and is probably one of the best looking cars in this segment. i agree it is hardly equipped with goodies. but the way it handles on the road makes you forgive its short comings. the driving comfort is way above its segment. on high speeds even on 180kmph it rides fabulous though 160kmph is what i advice is safe in this car. it takes the corners brilliantly and asks you to push it more to show off its ability. the midrange of the power band ie.1500-3000RPM is the best in class which makes the verna and the city run for its money. it cleanly pulls the car from 20kmph in 3rd gear upto 80kmph and from 40kmph to 160kmph in 5th gear without any hesitancy. yes the car is noisy but only on the outside. i hate people lying about its mileage, i strongly say that it returns only 13kmpl in the city and 18kmpl in the highway and a combined figure of 15kmpl is what i get. its pretty good for a car this powerful. as far as safety is concerned take my word, its the safest car in the segment with a robust body and awesome brakes. on the whole its a great buy considering it a complete package for a driving enthusiast. finally i would like to conclude this review by saying that I'm a proud owner of the SKODA RAPID 1.6 TDI
