Skoda has finally taken the wraps off the automatic variant of the much hyped Rapid TSI. As revelaled earlier, Skoda ditches the DSG transmission & comes with a 6 speed torque converter automatic as seen on the Volkswagen siblings. The price ranges from 9.49 to 13.29 Lakhs ex showroom. While the automatic versions cost about Rs 1.5 lakh more than the equivalent manual variants, the Skoda Rapid TSI automatic’s starting price of Rs 9.49 lakh undercuts that of all its rivals, making the Rapid the most affordable automatic midsize sedan on sale in India today.
Rapid automatic’s ARAI-rated fuel efficiency is rated at 16.24kpl. Equipment levels are exactly the same as the manual Rapid, so the Rider Plus gets a 6.5-inch touchscreen infotainment system as standard, while the higher-spec Style and Monte Carlo pack in cruise control, reverse camera, automatic headlights and wipers, 8.0-inch touchscreen and an auto-dimming interior rear view mirror. The Rapid Style also gets side airbags.
Skoda also is bringing in the “Skoda Supercare” Maintainance package for the rapid 2Yr & 4 Yr options, starting from Rs. 15777 onwards.
