Cars Q&A

the avg running of my car is 200 km/ month. My budget is around 8 lacs. Keeping into consideration the increassing petrol costs, is it advisable for me to go for a diesel car?(I hope the diesel cars in the market are nt the diesel cars 5 yrs back) Im concerned about the mileage, spare parts costs, maintenance and comfort. Please suggest me a car.

Swift Desire is best in this category.

You should go for only a Petrol car. Diesel car make sense on drive atleast 1500km/month. Let's look a simple calculation:

For a Pertol car lets imagine you get an 10KM/Liter and price of Petrol as 67, so u need to fill 20 liters per month 20*67=1340. You spend Rs 1340 per month.

For a Diesel car lets imagine you get an 15KM/Liter and price of Diesel as 40, so u need to fill 13.5 liters per month 13.5*40=540. You spend Rs 540 per month.

Actual savings per month for a Diesel car would be Rs 800 per month, but you need to invest 1Lakh more for a Diesel car additionaly insurence premium Rs 2000 more each year for a Diesel car and Rs 1000 more on each service for a Diesel car.
