Note: Apologies for adding multiple engines/models here. I am not able to choose between Tdi and Tsi here. Based on my experience, Tdi is quicker on the regular driving conditions, and is manual, adding to the fun factor.
The pre-facelift 1.6 TDi can be had cheaper than the current 1.5 TDi. Besides, the 1.6 has a more raw feel albeit with a slightly less fuel efficiency figure.

I hear the 1.6L engines had some injector issue? I see thr resale value of this variant is quite low. Whats the known issues in 1.6L and what changedbin 1.5L?

The 1.6 TDi's earlier batches (2011) were the main ones to be affected by the faulty fuel injectors. Later models weren't as susceptible, due to VW doing something about it, but the Rapid wasn't really affected by this. To be on the safer side, it's wiser to go for a 2013-2014 car.
