VIDEO REVIEW | Crystal Palace 0-2 Burnley

  VIDEO REVIEW | Crystal Palace 0-2 Burnley In this week’s e-Crystal Palace Podcast, I review the game against Burnley by giving you my match review, player rankings as well as my Man of the Match. It was an afternoon to forget for Crystal Palace as they lost out 2-0 at home. Goals from Ashley Barnes and Andre Gray settled the contest in the visitors’ favour as Palace gifted Burnley two goals after some poor passing and even worse defending. It was clear that fatigue and injuries have had their impact, but Sam Allardyce would have expected better from his side. How much of a miss was Yohan Cabaye? Will Palace avoid the drop? All this and more in this week’s e-Crystal Palace Podcast. Subscribe to The e-Crystal Palace Podcast for more weekly podcasts and opinion pieces from Palace fans.

Positioned between the Skoda Fabia and Skoda Octavia, the Skoda Rapid and Skoda Rapid Spaceback are in the class of compact cars and set the benchmark for 1 . 0 TSI with 81 kW ( 110 PS), top speed of 200 km/h, 0 - 100 km/h in 9,8 sec., consumption combined 4,5 l/100 km, CO2 104 g/km.

What is it?

The Skoda Rapid sits right between the Fabia and Octavia in Skoda’s range, with prices now starting at £14,410 - £3,115 more than the former and £2,785 less than the latter.

For 2017, the Rapid has been given a (very) subtle styling refresh, confined to crisper-looking headlights, foglights and black tail-light tints. Inside, it’s just as subtle, with the addition of two USB ports for the rear passengers about the most noteworthy of updates. There are three trims available: S, SE Tech, and SE Sport. The range is book-ended by the 95bhp 1.0 TSI (£14,410) and the 89bhp 1.4 TDI CR DSG (£19,570), and there's a 1.6-litre diesel in the mix, too.

The 109bhp turbocharged petrol 1.0 TSI we're testing here is a new unit, replacing the old 1.2 TSI, and sits somewhere in the middle of the range, costing from £16,345 in SE Tech trim, and comes with a six-speed manual gearbox, where the others get five-speeds.

The Rapid is another optimistically named Skoda, as with the Superb, but it is still somewhat likely to live up to its name with the new 1.0 TSI unit strapped in. It should prove frugal too; Skoda claims 52.2mpg and 104g/km of CO2 emissions, which is down by 5.5mpg for fuel economy but emits less CO2 compared with the old 1.2 TSI.

Rare review hands Fabregas assist

  Rare review hands Fabregas assist Cesc Fabregas first assist in Chelsea's 3-0 win over Middlesbrough has been re-awarded to the Spaniard after a rare review. Fabregas, whose cross for Diego Costa's opener on Monday Night Football came off the boot of Fabio before landing at the striker's feet, also set up Chelsea's third goal for Nemanja Matic.But in Fabregas' post-match interview with Dave Jones, Gary Neville and Jamie Carragher on MNF, the midfielder was informed that the assist had been taken away from him because of Fabio's touch, much to Fabregas' annoyance.

What is it like?

  Skoda Rapid Spaceback 1.0 TSI 110 review © Provided by Haymarket Media Group It’s like a Fabia, but bigger, rather than being like an Octavia, but smaller. That’s not necessarily a bad thing; it’s got the Fabia’s quiet competence, but an unsettled ride and cheap plastics to match.

On rather smooth rural German roads, the Rapid’s suspension tends to amplify small ruts, albeit with an overarching softness; translate this to the UK’s more mottled tarmac and it could be a bit of an issue. These aren’t really welcome, and the bumps, combined with the 1.0-litre three-pot’s raspy note and interior vibration, make things a little less serene than they could be under a heavier stomp of acceleration. It does pull relatively well from low revs, and is flexible.

The boomy engine adds a little aural drama to an otherwise fuss-free cabin ambience, but some could grow tired of this, because it serves as a reminder that the engine has to be worked hard to get any convincing oomph out of it. The steering is much the same: unless treated with considerable vigour, it’s overly numb. There's little body roll, though.

Bike Reviews . Auto Shows. Spy Photos. Of course, that doesn’t mean the new 2017 Skoda Rapid and its Spaceback sister have nothing going for them. But if you decided you are okay with the design, 2017 Skoda Rapid comes with a new 1 . 0 -litre, three-cylinder TSI engine with either 95 or 110

Should I buy one?

There are few reasons not to, if you’re in the less emotional end of the family car market. The Seat Leon offers more personality, albeit in a different package, while the Volkswagen Golf offers a similar amount of personality, but in a plusher package, but both cost far more than the Rapid.

The 1.0-litre TSI Rapid offers a mid-point to the 1.6-litre and 1.4-litre TDI models; it doesn’t have the low-end shove of the 1.6 - although that engine does peter above 3500-4000rpm - but it’s got a fair bit more than the 1.4. All three have around the same level of engine noise.

Currently, 70% of UK customers go for the Rapid Spaceback over the regular Rapid liftback, and SE Tech (£16,345) will be the best-selling trim level with its alloy wheels, Bluetooth, cruise control, front foglights and other basic creature comforts.

Keener drivers need not apply, though.
