If planing to use for long term nd regular longdrives then it will be worth going for diesel version for Figo which is reliable and cost effective too. If prefer petrol version then i10 would be ideal selection.

As per your budget the idle car in my suggertion is Vista Terra Quadrajet, cause the Engine of said car is award winning Deisel Engine, the same Engine is used in Maruti Swift, Dzire, Ritz, Fiat Punto, Linea, Tata Vista, manza, also rummors are there that the same Engine will be used in Maruti SX4 in Deisel version. I my Suggestion rhese days Deisel cars are better than Petrol, provided if U take proper maintainance.

if your daily running is less than 50kms and want to own a car then petrol car is best suited to you.
otherwise if you are going to change you car after 4years surely and can bear extra maintenance then diesel car.

among petrol selection, hyundai i10 kappa2 would be best as it is 1.2 car and it is much better in terms of service,maintenance and owning.

if want to go for diesel then maruti ritz or swift, figo or indica vista

Yup that's true the selection of the car depends on the running you have on the daily basis.. If you drive less than 50 km a day then Petrol is the right option as you pay extra for Diesel car and it only covers it's worth if you are doing a good amount of driving everyday..Petrol, i10 is the best option or may be other options if you want to consider them Beat(hit in the market) or Chevrolet Aveo UVA (less advertismentsbut gained a gud customer lineup & actually happy customers).. Diesel, Jagjit said the right thing lot of manufacturer's are using Fiat made engines including Vista,swift, punto, ritz etc and they are quit successfull, though Ford's Figo has proven good giving amazing performance and lot of features PLUS best in class A.C as well.. All the best
