Rapid is the same car from technical aspects but it is cheaper than Vento. I think there should not be any problem whatsoever if you go for Rapid.
Thanks a ton Dave. I agree on the commercials.. I’ve even read that the Rapid’s suspension is better tuned for our roads, esp. the pitching motion that occurs on undulating roads.

The City is kind of a default…[Read more]
Hey guys.. my apologies for the radio silence. Kinda got snowed under work and didn’t get round to checking mail.
