  • Well, For the high initial price you pay extra for diesel(say 1 Lakhs) with your kinda mileage(500KM per month) it may take you 7-8 years to break even the purchase cost and another 5-6 years to reap benefits of diesel. So please forget Diesel.

    My No.1 and very strange advise to you - i10 Sports AUTOMATIC - Yes, Automatic (At 500 KM per month - the 2 KMPL less mileage wont even hurt you. Otherwise - Manual transmission of the above will also do.

    My No.2 advise - Maruti Ritz Vxi - Superb car, grat drivability, great handling and good mileage.

    Take test drive of both and decide on your own.
