After much hullabaloo, Skoda Rapid finally launched in India on November 16th. More than the launch, people are much excited to see which of the two is going to be the frontrunner in the race, Rapid or Vento. Skoda has managed to let the cat out of the bag quite well by saying that Skoda Rapid is based on the Volkswagen Vento sedan. But the point has come where the threat of cannibalisation outsizes the success of the sedan.Skoda India on the other hand has set high hopes on the sedan to replace Fabia as their flagship model. With the fresher appeal, Skoda Rapid definitely has an upper hand over Volkswagen Vento. The Skoda Rapid price for the petrol variant at Rs 6.75 and the diesel variant at Rs 7.95 has the needle of sales ticking faster for Skoda Rapid over Volkswagen Vento.
