The Rapid is an excellent addition to our Skoda Fabia which by its high production quality ( yes I know it is part of the VAG group) However the Skoda brand has it own "feel " The build quality is VAG high, and we are particularly pleased with size of the boot The seats are particularly impressive giving excellent lumber support I like the dashboard layout which is un fussyand not looking like an escapee from star wars The Turbo diesel is impressive has an almost "grand turismo " feel to it Paint finish is V high standard and the large glass sun roof is a nice feature . I would like to say the dealer was a great pains to make sure we were shown all that we required ( Unsolicited comment. ) I can say that Savilles Kidderminster are in my personal view one of the most professional and un pushy organisations I have encountered and took us through all the paperwork with no problems I look forward to the experience of driving my new aquisition G H Buckley
Very good value for money and amazing amount of space. I had very specific requirements. £30 car tax. Possible 60 mpg. 450 plus ltr boot space. Hatch back or estate. No longer than 4.5m for ease of parking. The Rapid was not my first choice but the deal from my Skoda agent was too good to resist.
The car runs well but although this model has all the bits it is still a basic car. I consider the Fabia too ugly to buy as is the Roomster. The Rapid looks OK and serves my needs.
Downside is the ride. This model has the 17" wheels which make the ride too hard. You notice all the bumps. Internally comfortable enough but lots of hard plastics around. This car reminds me a bit of the original Octavia.
Too early to comment on reliability but my previous Skoda was excellent. After all this is a VW in different clothes!
I have the car for 5 months now. It is very easy driving, with controls well laid. Despite the small engine capacity, it has good acceleration. It is fuel efficient, delvering 40 mpg overall, and 55mpg on a longer journey.
This car is not the fastest by a long way but the space, comfort and reliability are important features for me. It is prone to noise from the road surface.
