Q. How is the performance of Skoda Rapid?
Skoda Rapid is offered in both petrol and diesel guise. The oil burner gets the 1.6-litre TDI engine that churns out a max power output of 105bhp and 250Nm of torque, while the petrol version is packed with 1.6-litre MPI unit producing 105bhp and 153Nm of top torque. The diesel engine is the same which powers the Vento sedan as well, but it is tuned to offer better performance, low NVH and responsive. There is hardly any turbo lag and it runs well on both low and high revs. On the other hand, the petrol engine too is refined and quick; however, I personally love driving Japanese petrol cars like Honda City and Nissan Sunny. Both the engines are coupled to a five-speed manual gearbox, while the petrol engine also gets an option of six-speed automatic.
