  • Expert Hi,
    Indeed its a good option inchoosing Dzire , VDI will be a better choice for long term usage , maintenance, fuel efficiency ,cost effectiveness in long term .

  • Hi Lovelesh Are you sure that your Dzire Vxi gives 18 kms/lts, How much mileage you get in city and how much in highway, I am also in dilemma like Sailesh whether to choose Vxi or Vdi.

  • I advice u 2 buy vxi or preferably zxi,bcoz the petrol version of dzire is more smooth and easy to drive than the diesel,but i agree diesel is also smooth but not when compared to petrol-if ur first preference is mileage its better to buy vdi or zdi,bcoz the petrol version gives only a mileage about 12 to 14.if ur preference is riding comfort better go for avxi or zxi model...

  • mr. ramesh

    Answer by Lovelesh Sahota on Jan 25, 2009

  • Hi Shailesh. I have had the same dilemma myself. Depending upon the city you are in the VDI costs 75-90 thousand above the VXI. So if your mileage is 10,000 and you do not anticipate this to go up significantly, then buy the VXI. I you are buying a diesel so that you go for more outings and see your mileage going up significantly (50% at least) then buy the VDI. Also an important question is "how long do you plan to keep the car". In your current mileage it would take at least 3-3.5 years to recover the price diff between VDI & VXI. So if you want to keep a car for at least 5 years, then the VDI could still be considered with your current mileage. But remember, for the first 3 years, you are just recovering the difference of diesel and petrol cars.

  • hi it is useless to buy a diesel car for a person whose running is below 18000 km/ should go for a patrol car.

  • Its the most ugliest car i have seen in a long time. Its completely out of proportion, the front and the back look like 2 different cars. Donno know why anyone would want to buy a sick looking car like DZire, a 1980 contessa looks nicer & cleaner and better proportioned than this one.

  • The Golden rule is that if your monthly drive is less than 1500 KM than never think of Diesal Vehicle. Dezire VXI is good sedan.
