Skoda Rapid Active 1.6 MPI MT Features & Specifications, ARAI Mileage and Price

Skoda has been in India for the past many years but is less popular than its sister carmaker Volkswagen which only entered the fray a few years ago. The Czech car maker is trying again to gain some market share with an all new entry level car, the Skoda Rapid Active 1.6 MPI MT. This C-segment sedan sits between the Skoda Fabia and the Skoda Laura both in terms of pricing and luxury. The car is priced very competitively and is sure to raise a price war with the Honda City and the Hyundai Verna. The car has some new features such as electro mechanic power steering and remote control locking. The car will has been priced within a range of rupees 6.98 lakhs and 7.36 lakhs.      
 
Specifications
 
The Skoda Rapid Active 1.6 MPI MT is a 4-seater luxury car with very comfortable seats. The car uses the 1.6 L inline engine which comes with 16 Valves in DOHC arrangement. The petrol engine is mated to the 5 speed manual transmission which is very smooth and runs without any hiccups. It takes this variant only 11 seconds to hit 100 kmph mark. The vehicle has a very quick gearing mechanism which helps while driving in the cities. The vehicle has a total kerb weight of 1145 kg and produces a maximum power of 104 bhp at an rpm of 5250. The maximum torque is limited to 153 Nm which is achieved at an rpm of 3800. The car covers over all the potholes and the clutch is very light, which is a delight for the driver. The Czech car maker has also worked very keenly on the fuel economy and it is evident in the spectacular fuel efficacy of the vehicle. The Skoda Rapid Active 1.6 MPI MT has a fuel efficiency of 15 kmpl in cities, cited by ARAI.
 
Interiors and Exteriors
 
The car resembles to the Skoda Fabia a lot. It has the same wide grille, front bumper and even the hood is very similar. But this is definitely better than what we see on the Volkswagen Vento. The car doesn’t have a muscular feel but looks very modern. The boot lid has the traditional Skoda tail lamps and is a bit identical to the Vento. The car also has front and rear fog lamps. The interiors of the Rapid are really spectacular and a delight for a person who likes elegance and polished finish. The steering wheel is very comfortable but misses the leather cover. The dials have been given a glossy black finish. The car has a completely new music system. It comes with an aux-in and a SD card reader. But it misses a Bluetooth accessible feature which is quite common in major luxury cars. The car is very friendly and comes with a center arm rest and AC vents are provided at the rear although it is quite powerful already. 
 
Safety features
 
The Skoda Rapid Active 1.6 MPI MTlooks very modern and nice but that doesn’t mean the safety features have been sacrificed for it. The vehicle features Anti-lock breaking system, child safety lock and engine immobilizer. There is an airbag provided for the driver and central locking mechanism turns out to be really helpful.
