One of our followers, who wishes to remain anonymous, has shared a experience of a serious crash that could’ve turned ugly if it wasn’t for the build quality and advanced safety net of his 2017 Skoda Rapid. Our follower’s sister was traveling in a chauffeur drive Skoda Rapid on the Yamuna Expressway when a truck suddenly changed lanes and applied brakes in the middle of the road. The Rapid rammed into the truck at high speed, resulting in severe damage to the sedan.
However, the car’s safety net and build quality protected the occupants. The driver of the car, and the passenger who was sitting in the back row, escaped the accident without a scratch.

They were coming back to Delhi at around 7:30 in the evening when, suddenly a truck changed lanes and applied brakes. The car went under the truck till the middle of the windshield. The driver and my sister came out without a scratch. I’m writing you this message so you could tell people through a post how well built these cars are made.”
