  1. Excellent review, very informative. I have bought a used 1 year old Spaceback with 8,000 miles on the strength of your review and other research. When looking for another car in the future I will definitely check out your reviews. Thank you.

  2. Hello, really great test, thank you! 🙂 It is good to know that Rapid is much narrrower than e.g. VW Golf, Ford Focus or Citroen C4, so someone can feel uneasy…

  3. Good review. The fuel consumption is a bit lacking for this type of car. And I concur with the comfort. The suspension is really uncomfortable on bad road surfaces.

  4. Zum Kofferraum und der "Stufe" beim Umlegen der Rückbank: wenn man das richtig macht gibt es diese "Stufe" gar nicht. Man muß natürlich vor dem Umlegen der Rückenlehne die Sitzfläche nach vorne weg klappen.

  5. TSI hat immer noch Steuerkette (bei andere Modele war es shon mit Zahnriemen ersatzt weil es ein Konstruktionfehler hat und Motorschaden verursacht. Rapid hat immer noch "repariert" Kette-Motor xD)

    Alle TDI sind von Abgasscandal betroffen

    Nebenbei ist es preislich gleich wie Kia Ceed oder Hunday i30 und bietert aber nur 2 Jahre Garnatie, Hyundai 5 ohne km begrenzung und Kia 7 (bis 150 000km), Was sagt das uber Qualitet?

    Inneraum plastik ist bei Hyundai und Kie 2 Klasse besser als bei Rapid (bei rapid kriegt man steinhart plastik und bekommt kratzen sofort)

    Rapid basiert an ALTE POLO Platform … also 10 Jahre alte Platform von Kleinwagen

    Wer sagt immer noch VW group macht sinn?

  6. Hi!

    That's an excellent review, congratulations! I do appreciate your effort in making it, it helped me a lot in making my choice. However, I believe a small error might have slipped in somehow: the headlights are, indeed, xenon but, as I know, they do not have the Adaptative Frontlight System (AFS), therefore there is no swiveling around the corners, as said at 2:16. There is the cornering function for the fog lamps, but this is a different story. I have discussed with several local Skoda dealers and they informed me that the xenon option available for the Rapid does not come with AFS and that this would be thanks to a more special design of the lens, which distributes the light in a better manner.

    Could you confirm/infirm this?

    Thank you, cheers!

  7. Hello, your videos are really good, well explained, detailed….
    The rapid looks nice. However skoda didn't make a coupé like the old rapid ( skoda rapid 130 for example) and in my opinion it's a mistake.

    Ps: Sorry for my bad english 😉

  8. I have ordered the top version (105 hp / TSI engine), without Sat Nav, but with the Style pack, xenon lights and silver color. They gave me a 2000 (€) discount, because of some promotional prices that are currently available. Total price came up to 15,844 (€). It should be delivered around Christmas. I can't wait 🙂

  9. All the Skodas I drove before felt really numb when handling and had really cheap interiors. That is not so bad because the build quality was good, but the handling of anything that is not a straight road was abysmal. Is the new one the same or do you feel some connection and surefooted in the corners like in a VW or SEAT?

    I know it is a Skoda, but still that handling was just poor.

  10. Nice review, a complete one, god job !
     In two weeks, my car will arrive,a hach-back model, and I had the pleasure to make a three days drive test. This 1.2 tsi engine is brilliant, and you can make the declared consumption, if you are a calm driver. I sow in your video that you drive in 4-th gear at 60km/h. You can easily drive at that speed in 6-th gear, with no problems, the dynamics is amazing. All so, I've notice a big price difference, between countries. Here in Romania I pay for a mid spec + heated seats, tempomat, maxi-dot, parking sensors, full steering wheel , +++, 12.800 euro, a great value.
