Skoda has completed the launch of their C-Segment offering called the Rapid. It was unveiled a few days but the pricing was kept under the wraps.

The car shares its underpinnings and its engine types with its elder brother, the VW Vento. By pricing the base petrol at 6.75 lakhs INR and the base diesel at 7.95 lakhs INR, Skoda seem to have pleasantly surprised a number of people including us.

Would the price difference when compared to its elder sibling Vento work as a factor to drive potential Vento buyers to Skoda’s dealerships? To top it all, the Rapid has the tagline ‘Simple Clever’. Yes indeed, we say.
