At the same time, the performance of the Czech car is much more impressive - 550 liters, and with the seats in the back row of seats lowered, the volume rises to 1500 liters, so if you want, you can even put a washing machine there. In this respect, European practicality is immediately felt. In both cars under the boot floor there is a spare wheel.

  1. Fuel tank volume and fuel consumption.Here, the values ​​are also different and look like this: 43 liters of gasoline enter the tank of a Korean car, and 55 liters of fuel are already placed in a Czech car. As for consumption per 100 km, for Hyundai Solaris “on the mechanics” when traveling around the city will spend 7.9 liters and 4.9 liters on the highway, while on the “automatic” these values ​​will be 8.8 liters and 5.2 liters, respectively. At Skoda Rapid, these figures are slightly different: Manual transmission will show 8.9 liters in the city and 4.9 liters for a country trip, and automatic transmissions will already be 10.2 liters and 6 liters.
  2. Speed.Максимальная скорость этих двух марок примерно одинакова — около 190 км/ч. Разгон до 100 км/ч также не слишком разнится, несмотря на то, что под капотом у них разное количество «лошадей» — 105 у Шкоды и 123 у Хендая. Так, для чешской модели эти значения таковы: 10,6 с на «механике» и 11,9 с на «автомате», а у корейской — 10,2 с на МКПП и 11,2 с на АCAT.
  3. CAT. We looked at cars with a 1.6-liter engine produced in 2014. Here Skoda Rapid against Hyundai Solaris can not argue. The choice is wider in Solaris - six-speed automatic transmissions and manual transmissions have been added, to the existing 4 automatic transmissions, 5 manual transmissions. The sixth gear will not add speed, of course, but it will increase the efficiency of the engine. At the same Skoda options only two - a five-step "mechanics" and a six-speed "automatic".

What to choose in the end?

If you focus on the design, those drivers who focus on the severity and some broken lines, will choose the Skoda. This is a fairly classic car. Hyundai also features a more modern interior and in general the car looks more dynamic and youth. Korean car seems to be more urban model than its competitor from the Czech Republic, which is clearly a workhorse and more family-owned, something that is facilitated by just a huge trunk.

Noise insulation Discounts for new cars! Profitable loan from 9.9% installments 0% is about the same, despite the fact that each car makes noise in its own way. Changing the wheels when buying will slightly reduce the sound effect.

Что касается езды, то по городу она достаточно комфортна в обеих моделях. На загородных трассах Хендай Солярис несколько уступает Шкоде Рапид в основном потому, что не решена проблема с задней подвеской. Эта проблема вообще отличает некоторые корейские автомобили от европейских. Сама подвеска настроена средне. При колейности дороги автомобиль начинает болтать. Шкода же в этом отношении чувствует себя несколько увереннее. Вообще, все владельцы Хендая знают, что этот автомобиль более устойчивый и лёгкий, однако после 70 км/ч начинает слегка вибрировать, правда этот момент нивелирует 6 АCAT.

Test drive a car Hyundai Solaris:

As for the gearbox, I must say that Skoda has a great five-speed "mechanics", so smooth is the car. In this regard, it becomes even slightly incomprehensible why a six-speed automatic was released for the Russian market, because it significantly increases the amount of the purchase. Although, of course, there is a personal file for each customer.

If you haven’t decided yet, on which scale the choice will fall: Solaris or Rapid, then continue the review.

The back of the driver's seat at Hyundai Solaris is regulated in steps and the distance between the steps is large enough, which creates some inconvenience. On the driver's seat at the Skoda Rapid is somewhat more convenient. Both cars have adjustable steering wheel height and height, but the skin on the Rapid is much more pleasant to the touch.

Test drive car Skoda Rapid:

The front panel in Rapid looks simple and concise in comparison with Solaris, but at the same time all the necessary functions are present there. For Hendai, some elegance of lines is characteristic without loss of information content.

Regarding the price of cars. Both cars in the basic configuration are about the same in value, another thing is that the equipment itself is somewhat different, as we said above.

Therefore, when choosing a car, it is worth being guided mostly by one thing - if you are an avid summer resident or have a large family, then the Skoda Rapid will be a better choice. Hyundai Solaris is more suitable for urban residents and young people.
