you might save some bucks on fuel and mileage of diesel car but one thing is that you car paying a lakh more for it.
moreover the service cost of is pretty high than a service of petrol car.
i think if your usage is 1200kms then it is fine to go for petrol car.
the advantages are petrol car are reliable and if done just simple care , the car can last for atleast five year without any trouble.
the engine sound and maintenance is low of petrol.

the only thing is its price and effeciency is less but overall it is better to go for petrol.

I recommend you to do one thing, if you are really interested in knowing
i give you swift's mileage, price of corrosponding model. which is given on brochure.
swift petrol(vxi) 17.94kmpl. ex showroom price (delhi)4,58,984
swift diesel(vdi) 21.70kmpl. ex showroom price (delhi)5,26,662

on calculation you recover 68000rs if driving 1200kms per month in approx 3 years
now its your wish.
