2020 Skoda Rapid Rider Plus – Exterior

The design of the car has not changed, but a few tasteful bits have been added to the exterior of the car. They include decorative side foils, glossy black decor on the B pillars, trunk lip garnish as well as new window chrome garnish. The 2020 Skoda Rapid Rider Plus gets the following new features for the additional price of Rs. 50,000: a touchscreen infotainment system and a wider selection of exterior colours, the car is still well priced. Amidst rivals, the base Maruti Ciaz Sigma is the closest, at Rs 8.32 lakh, but that too misses out on some equipment like alloy wheels, auto climate control, fog lamps, driver seat height adjust and a touchscreen infotainment system. So, the Rider Plus is still good value for money.
