The 1.6 liter engine used here will support both the petrol and the diesel car models while at the same time it will be providing its users with the dual transmission modes facility. The car is sure to present itself as a great competition to all the others in its league.
The similarity to its sister company’s Vento does it more harm than any good as it raises various speculations and the critics are here to offer it some strong dosage. The name of the model, Rapid is perhaps a very subtle usage of the word and renders it some uniqueness.

The Rapid does provide some decent engine performance with the motor being much more refined this time.
