Auto Express's reliability ratings are based on our Driver Power survey of over 30,000 car owners. Ratings are the average for all owners of this car who responded. Individual owners’ ratings and comments appear below.

A debut entry sees yet another Skoda performing very favourably with owners – in some categories, anyway. Although the Rapid is said to be extremely practical by owners, and offer very low running costs (rating 7th and 6th respectively in those categories of all cars surveyed), the ride quality is by comparison woeful, placing 168th.

That, coupled with poor seat comfort, makes this far from the most refined car on the road – even among other budget hatchbacks. Handling is lackluster too, making this mostly a cost- and space-conscious choice.
