Answer by Loveesh Sahota 04 April 2009

Petrol - More BHP = Better Pickup.
Diesel - More Torque = More pulling power.
CRDi Turbo Diesel - More Torque + Good Pickup, after the turbo starts spinning.

Advice: Go for any well powered CRDi Turbo Diesel, like Swift, Palio Multijet, Indica Quadrajet, Fusion TCDi, Fiesta TCDi, Verna CRDi, Accent CRDi (only second hand available), Octavia TDi, Laura TDi etc etc and the list goes on..
