The new Rapid comes with a 1.0 turbo charged unit. Start the car in idol and you will realize that it is a 3 cylinder engine. The advantage of 3 cylinder engine is the mileage and somewhere that yearly tax benefits with savings in the insurance cost. We went through all the terrains within the Kathmandu valley and we were surprised experiencing the immediate response after the odometer crosses 2000 rpm you will then realize that it is a turbo charged unit.
The Rapid comes with the solid plastics around the dashboard, door panels that helps to grow the ambiance inside the car. And one of another benefit of those solid plastics you will see after 3-4 years of service. Where some of its rivals plastics starts to smell on the next hand the Rapid’s plastic quality are hard but it just feels like new over the time. The rear AC vents just adds so much to make the cabin cool.
All the windows of the new Rapid come with dark green Glasses with Infrared Cut. The paint quality is up to the mark which escapes your car paint from being rusted. That high quality chromes, and emblems looks simple but notice you won’t see a SKODA car without the worn out logos and emblems.
