Confused between dZire petrol and diesel ?

Hello Saurabh Mudgil !!
When it is a question of selection among petrol or diesel version cars, some things that you should keep in mind are - average usage per month, conditions of usage such as plane roads or hilly areas and budget. If the expected usage is below 1,500km per month then petrol version would be a better choice. For higher than that diesel version would be more profitable in long term usage. Swift Dzire diesel has proven performance with good power and best of mileage too however it would cost approximately 1Lac more than the petrol version.

Considering the initial cost of a diesel car, if you are driving around 20,000 km a year than diesel engine makes more sense. Diesel cars in india cost around 1 lac more than the petrol variant and while in luxury sedan this gap goes up to 3 lacs. Also, maintainence cost of a diesel car 25%-50% higher than the petrol. So, if the travelling is less or if you frequently change the car then it's better to opt a petrol variant.
As my friend reviewed, both variants of this car is pretty good, when you are choosing between diesel and petrol, 1st thing you must consider is the kilometers driven daily, if the car runs much daily then you should go fir diesel engine, because it is very economical, but if the car runs occasionally then there is no use of buying a diesel variant of the car. And if the car runs in the hilly areas then diesel is more effective there, as diesel has more towing capacity.
