    Dimension Review

    • The Rapid is longer than the WR-V by 414mm.
    • The WR-V is wider than the Rapid by 35mm.
    • The WR-V is taller than the Rapid by 135mm.
    • The WR-V has a longer wheelbase than the Rapid; by 3mm.
    • The Rapid has 97 litres more boot space than the WR-V.
    • The WR-V has 20mm more ground clearance than the Rapid.
    • On one side the Rapid has a much longer length and a bigger boot while on the other side, the WRV has a wider, taller body with better ground clearance.

    Because of its taller body, the WR-V comes across as a slightly larger car than the Rapid. So, it will have a marginally better road presence than the Rapid but the difference will not be noticeable to the eyes.

    Petrol Engine Review

    • The Rapid has a more powerful engine than the WR-V.
    • The Rapid's engine produces more torque than the WR-V's.
    • The Rapid turbo petrol manual is more fuel-efficient than the WR-V manual.
    • The Rapid has a far better engine than the WRV. The WRV’s small, normal petrol engine makes only 110Nm of torque, which peaks at a very high 4800rpm. By this point in the rev band, the Rapid is already making as much power as the WRV’s peak torque.
    • The Honda WRV’s petrol variant has a poor torque-to-weight ratio of just 99.5Nm/tonne. This figure is less than even the Renault Triber and Santro. It’s much worse than the Kwid 1.0 too.
    • Combine low torque-to-weight ratio and a peak torque RPM of 4800, and you have a car, which you’ll have to rev hard every time you want to make decent progress.

    Is the Skoda Rapid better than the Honda WR-V?

    Price of the base variant of Skoda Rapid is Rs. 7.49 lakh and Honda WR-V is Rs. 8.50 lakh (both ex-showroom). The Rapid is both more affordable and more expensive. Its lower variants are more affordable while the higher variants are more expensive.

    In terms of road presence, the two cars are evenly matched but with a slight tilt in the WR-V’s favour as it’s taller and wider than the Rapid.

    For petrol powertrain, Rapid's engine is leagues ahead of the Honda WRV in performance. It’s not just because the Rapid uses a turbo petrol engine. The Honda WRV’s heavy kerb weight, poor torque figure and peaky torque output make it worse than an entry-level hatchback with a 1.0-litre normal petrol engine. Since you’ll have to rev the engine so frequently, expect worse real-world mileage too from the Honda WRV than the Skoda Rapid.
