Skoda Auto India has added the plus package to its best selling model, Skoda Rapid. Rapid comes in both petrol and diesel variants where the options under the petrol version are the Active 1.6 MPI MT, Ambition 1.6 MPI MT, Elegance 1.6 MPI MT, Ambition 1.6 MPI AT and the Elegance 1.6 MPI AT. Under the diesel option, the customers could choose from the Active 1.6 TDI CR MT, Ambition 1.6 TDI CR MT and Elegance 1.6 TDI CR MT. To this existing line-up, the company has added the plus package.

The customers will now have a wider line-up to select from as the new variants, Active Plus and Ambition Plus have been introduced by the company. These new variants are expected to be loaded with more features as compared to the earlier versions. The company is focusing more towards providing better convenience to its customers and thus, the new added features could possibly be more oriented towards enhancing customer’s driving experience and not just the performance.

Recently Volkswagen gave the Vento a mild update and now its Skoda’s turn to offer more features to the buyers. The Active Plus variant of the Skoda Rapid offers a foldable key with remote locking/unlocking and electrically adjustable rear view mirrors. The Amibition Plus variant now boasts of 2-din audio system, 4-speakers, one-touch power windows, chrome inserts on AC vents, AUX and SD card ports and electrically adjustable rear view mirrors. Skoda hasn’t revealed the prices yet.

Skoda India has just rejigged the variant line up of the Skoda Rapid sedan, its best selling car model. While the Rapid sedan was sold in India in no less than five variants each for the petrol and turbo diesel engine options, and two more variants for the automatic gearbox equipped petrol engined model, Skoda has embarked on a variant rationalization measure by eliminating the Active and the Ambition trims. After the rationalization, the Skoda Rapid is now available in 8 variants in total.

Skoda Rejiged Rapid Lineup - Drops Active and Ambition Variants

Skoda rejigs model lineup. Active and Ambition variant dropped. Here is the new line-up:

Petrol - Manual Transmission - Active Plus / Ambition Plus / Elegance
Petrol - Automatic Transmission - Ambition Plus / Elegance
Diesel - Manual Transmission - Active Plus / Ambition Plus

Skoda Rapid Diesel is no longer being offered in top of the line Elegance trim. This means that diesel buyer has to make do with one less Airbag. If he wants 2 Airbags, then either he must go for petrol or switch to VW Vento.

I think this is being done because of two reasons (or both):

As a part of repositioning Skoda w.r.t. VW.
To make way for European Skoda Rapid.

Hi, I had visited a Skoda Dealer last month and I saw Rapid Elegance Plus also. I had thought the Plus options were only for Active & Ambition. I cannot find on websites or any where else the addition of Elegance Plus variant. I was told by the dealer than chroming is the only difference in the Elegance Plus model. Any idea/information on this?
Also I am planning to buy Rapid Elegance Petrol AT 2012 model. Am I making a good choice?

1. Leather wrapped Steering wheel
2. Leather Gear Knob
3. Leather wrapped Handbrake
4. Chrome Trim on AC Vents
