I have a RIO 2001 which go very will
And from two month I bought the Spectra 2005 ,then I noticed that the Spectra is not aggressive in spite of its outside look opposite of the RIO ,
For my opinion the problem is :
The RIO have 1500 cc engine of 98 hp with weight of 925 kg
The Spectra have 1600 cc engine of 106 hp with weight of 1250 kg
That mean :
In Rio each 1 hp have 9.43 kg
In Spectra each 1 hp have 11.79 kg
And that what make my Rio more aggressive than Spectra
For now (if I don’t find a way to increase the Spectra power ),I will follow this philosophy:
Take the Rio if seeking more aggressive driving
Take the Spectra if seeking more comfortable and elegance driving

Any one have any comment on my philosophy?

Your philosophy makes sense becasue the Rio weights less than the Spectra which means it takes the Rio less to get going than the Spectra. More hp in the spectra would help you out.

Many Thanks TheIceAge05
In Syria The Spectra has only the 1.6 Liters DOHC CVVT 16 Valves engine with 106 HP, how nice it would be if we have the 2.0 Liters
See you ..bay
