The Skoda Rapid, a sedan from the house of the Czech automotive firm Skoda Auto, was launched in India in November 2011. Though the sedans built by Skoda were expensive, they had a reputation for build quality and handling. This car continued the trend, having that typical Germanic fun-to-drive demeanour; but it was more affordable as well. The Skoda Rapid has currently come a long way, gaining steadily in popularity as a classy car and enjoying high popularity at the same time. Though the Rapid is styled on the same platform as the Volkswagen Vento, this good looking car has been carefully styled according to varying tastes of customers. The Skoda Rapid offers buyers a choice of four paint colour shades: Deep Black Pearl, Candy White, Flash Red and Brilliant Silver.
