    Rapid 2020 Vs Freestyle 2020 | Dimension Comparison - Which One Is Bigger?

    Skoda Rapid is 4413mm long, 1699mm wide and 1466mm tall and rides on a wheelbase measuring 2552mm. The Skoda Rapid has a boot space of 460 litres.

    A wider body normally results in better shoulder room inside the car while a higher roof makes it easier to get in and out of the car. A higher ground clearance makes it easier to go over tall speed breakers or drive on broken roads. The wheelbase is the distance between the centre of the front and rear wheels. A longer wheelbase often results in more cabin space. A larger boot allows you to carry more luggage.

    In terms of dimensions, Rapid is naturally bigger than the Freestyle and therefore it’ll have better road presence. So, if size is a measure of road presence for you, then Rapid is a better car than Freestyle. But, the Freestyle has one big advantage over the Rapid, and that is higher ground clearance.
