Skoda has launched its VW-Vento based saloon, the Rapid. Prices start at Rs 6.75 lakh(ex-showroom, Delhi) for the base petrol, which is only Rs 25,000 less than its cousin with the swankier badge. The base diesel starts Rs 7.95 lakh, which is around Rs 36,000 cheaper than the Vento. The savings are greater if you choose the top end diesel, which is cheaper by around Rs 57,000 from the Vento’s Highline diesel variant.

The Rapid will be available in three trims – Active, Ambition and Elegance, the last of which gets 15-inch alloy wheels and driver and passenger airbags, though steering mounted controls are not available on any version. However, except for the face, there’s little else that separates the two cars.

Here are theSkoda Rapid ex-showroom Delhi prices -

Active Petrol: Rs 6.75 lakh
Ambition Petrol: Rs 7.09 lakh
Ambition Petrol (Auto): Rs 8.09 lakh
Elegance Petrol: Rs 7.99 lakh
