High maintenance costs have been a bane for the brand Skoda in India and this poor reputation has started affecting its retail sales. The package, which is known as Rapid 5×5 Experience, is a combination of easy 5 year financing, 5 years of extended warranty, 5 years road side assistance, 1 year insurance and 5 add on features.

The Rapid sedan is offered with two engine and two transmission options. The car's engine options are a 1.6 liter MPI petrol engine (105 PS-153 Nm) and a 1.6 liter TDI turbo diesel engine (105 PS-250 Nm). Both engines come with a 5 speed manual gearbox as standard while a 6 speed automatic gearbox is available on the petrol variants as an option. Skoda sells the Rapid in 11 variants.
