I have a Ford Fiesta 1.4 EXI Durotorq which I have been using since 2006 December. Mileage is about 15-16 kmpl in the city with A/c on.
The real advantage is when you take it out on the highway when the mileage improves upto about 22-24kmpl.
This is a new age diesel, and unlike older diesels, is clean, silent, quick and relatively maintenance-free!
I doubt that you will get a 2-3 year old Diesel Fiesta as this is a vehicle that one should hold on to for at least 5 years! My vehicle has completed 4 years, and is still running as well as it did on day 1! If you get one, get it thoroughly checked at the nearest ford outlet and if the vehicle is in good condition, BUY IT! you will not regret your decision!

At the price rate of Rs. 3.5L to 4.0L, & that to car like Fiesta, I don't think U will get Fiesta car as per your Budget, even if U get Fiesta in the said price range, then keep another 2.0 L in your pocket to repair the car, cause no body will sale his car if its in sound or good condition. In my suggestion add another 50k in your budget & go for new Ford Figo. (IF YOU WANT TO STAY HAPPY).
