Hello Rajkumar !!

With Hyundai Elite i20 you can expect mileage of average of 16 to 18kmpl . Regarding selection between petrol or diesel version cars. Petrol versions have advantage of lesser price by around 1 Lac and also maintenance cost is lower as compared to diesel version car. For the kind of usage mentioned, petrol version would be best option.

Hyundai i20 Elite is available in both diesel and petrol versions, however, if you are looking for mileage then only a diesel trim can offer you a better fuel-efficiency. All the diesel versions of this car offer 22.54kmpl, however, its ERA 1.2 petrol trim can give 18.6kmpl. Nevertheless, a petrol version of this car will cost you less in comparison with a diesel trim. It will cost you almost Rs. 1 lakh less. Moreover, on each service, you do not have to drain your wallet completely of you have a petrol edition as its maintenance cost is less. The kind of requirement you have, a petrol variant would do the best for you.

You should opt for the diesel variant. The petrol variant is a little under performing. The petrol variants are equipped with a 1.2-litre Kappa engine with a displacement capacity of 1197cc. it produces a maximum power of about 81.90bhp at 6000rpm that results in a commanding torque output of 114.7Nm at just 4000rpm. The diesel variants have been equipped with a powerful 1.4-litre second generation 'U II' engine that can churn out a maximum power of 88.76bhp at 4000rpm that result in a peak torque output of 219.6Nm @ 1500 to 2750rpm. The diesel motor 18.4 Kmpl within the city limits, while delivering a maximum 21.27 Kmpl (on expressways). The petrol mill on the other hand deliver a mileage of 13.3 Kmpl (under standard driving conditions) in the city, while producing a maximum of 18.5 Kmpl on the highways.
