Greetings !!

See there are considerable differences in both cars

Skoda Rapid Rider Plus
> Sedan with lower center of gravity (lower ground clearance) and thus no body roll as such on corner as otherwise can experience in Nexon

> A Pillar not as thick as in Nexon - feels better for in city drive conditions

> Unlike Nexon which has multi-mode and feels relative dull in eco mode, againt okayish type in city mode and sport mode for fun - Skoda Rapid once past 2000 rpm has strong mid range to give a feel of pep - there are no as such multi mode. On relative basis - expect Rapid fuel efficiency to be better in against Nexon when driven in Sports Mode

> Better Feature List as Touchscreen Music system with Android Auto, Apple Car Play for live navigation along with Automatic climate control, Rear AC Vents, Rear Defogger

> Now available with 4 year warranty

> Suspension Dynamics of Skoda and VW Cars is immaculate and somehow not as stiff as in Nexon - gives an edge in Rapid on day to day drive.

Tata Nexon XM Petrol
> SUV Stance with Raised Ground clearance with wider tyres can take on bad roads at relative ease

> Ingress and Egress from Cabin is easier especially for senior member, Rear Seat of Skoda Rapid are placed low. Somehow from Space front too - despite of sub 4 meter SUV - Nexon ends up been more comfy for passenger against Rapid for family car usage with marginally better space

> Nexon is benchmark in safety - ESP, Traction Control, Seat Belt pretensioner and proven with 5 star safety. Its not that Rapid lacks safety or build. its that Nexon is benchmark

Important on Service Cost Aspect
Pls note - Skoda Rapid with 4 year AMC Maintenance pack cost and service cost for later years would not be much different from Tata Nexon. You can check and compare in Car Service Cost Comparison

Overall Best Buy in between Nexon and Skoda Rapid
See - there are considerable differences, you need to identify and shortlist requirement
> Tata Nexon: If seek proven safety with higher active safety features, easy ingress and egress in cabin with marginally better space in cabin, SUV Stance with wider tyres to take on bad roads

> Skoda Rapid - If seek more quicker mid range performance, full fledged mid sedan car as against sub 4 meter one, better features with Live Navigation, Defogger and convenience one along with a car for majority of city, good highway roads - Skoda Rapid is a descent consideration

Hope should help in making a pick.
