Exactly my words, "Why not a Honda City"? And, and if you are looking for a car high on performance, why not give the Fiat T-Jet a try?
Also, don't go after the general perception whether to buy x-car (Rapid in your case) in Petrol or Diesel. Do keep in mind, that by changing the engine and the fuel it uses changes the whole character of the car.
If economies are to be left aside, a Petrol Swift/Rapid/etc and Diesel Swift/Rapid/etc are two VERY different cars but have same interiors and exteriors. What I'm trying to say is, the junta generally decides on a car then thinks which would be better a Petrol or a Diesel on the basis of mileage covered in a month. What they don't realize is the different engines are NOT same on performance, not even near similar or slightly similar. Their acceleration figures, weight, torque and power figures, exhaust figures are all so different, and hence two different cars.
If money is not a constraint for you, and you want a smooth running high on performance mill, go a for a petrol one and not (only) because your running is 600-700 odd Kms.
On the contrary, there are those city speed freaks who like the punch in Diesel engines like the one in Swift/Punto etc and buy a Diesel Swift not because of the subsidy one would enjoy on Diesel but for the punchy nature of the Diesel motor.
Ponder on it and go for one that you like and brings a smile on your face.
