Hello Niranjan Prajapati..
Ford Ecosport is available in three engine versions.1.5L petrol version with mileage 15kmpl, 1.0L Ecoboost petrol with 18.9Kmpl.1.5L diesel with 22kmpl. Price range of titanium variant of all three ranges as 6.75L,9.14L, 9.6L respectively. Considering usage mentioned, 1.5L petrol version would be an ideal selection. It has advantage of cost effectiveness, good mileage, loaded with all comfort features.
Choice of a car for diesel and petrol depends upon user and his/her monthly running of car. Petrol car offers a much more smooth driving experience than diesel variant. Pick-up and acceleration of a petrol car is always better than its diesel variant. If average running of car is more than 1500 km per month than one should prefer to diesel as it is more fuel efficient. Diesel variant of EcoSport offers 22.7 kmpl whereas petrol variant offers 15.8 kmpl on highways. Price for EcoSport diesel is approximately 1 lakh more than its petrol variant.
