Hello Mr. Lal,

Lets compare all 3 Cars - Skoda Rapid, Hyundai Verna Sx and Honda City in Petrol Version :-

Engine :- Skoda Rapid has 1.6 Litre Engine displacing 105 BHP of Power. Fluidic Verna Sx has 1.6 Lit Engine displacing 123 BHP and Honda City has 1.5 Lit Engine displacing 118 BHP of Power. In terms of Torque - Honda City has 146 NM compared to Skoda Rapid 153 NM and of Hyundai Fluidic Verna at 158 NM . Torque is pulling power - a combination of high torque with powerful engine and high power is always recommended for hilly roads.

Fuel Efficiency: Hyundai Verna delivers the best fuel efficiency as per ARAI Standards at 17.43 Kmpl, followed by City at 16.81 Kmpl. While Rapid deliver mileage of 15Kmpl as per ARAI benchmark standards.

Ground Clearance: Its important if your drive is more on bumpy roads. New Honda City has a better ground clearance than its previous one at 165mm, Skoda Rapid Ground Clearance is at 168mm, while Hyundai Fluidic Verna Ground Clearance (na with us as of now) . In terms of wheelbase - Honda City wheelbase is 2550mm , Hyunda Fluidic Wheelbase is of 2570mm and that of Skoda Rapid is 2552 - making them almost at par in terms of rear seat comfort

Features: All 3 cars have in common - PS, PW, CL, ABS with EBD, Dual Airbags, Music System with CD Player, Height Adjustable Driver Seat, Alloy Wheels

However- Skoda Rapid has - Automatic Climate Control which is not present in Honda CIty , while Honda City has Chrome Finish, Steering Mounted Audio Control and Front seat arm rest (which to the best of knowledge is not available in Skoda Rapid) . However - Hyundai Fluidiic Verna Sx has some Additional Features compared to both Honda City and Skoda Rapid - Rear Parking Censors, Rear View Camera, Steering Mounted Audio Controls, Driver Information Display System, Automatic Climate Control.

In terms of Price - though i hope you must have researched so far - City VMT is priced at Rs. 8.86 Lacs, Hyundai Fluidic at 8.47 Lac for Sx and Rapid Elegance at 8.25 Lacs
All 3 cars are readily available as per our market understanding.

I hope you would have got an answer to your question. Still for reference you may refer below link also:-
