  • Expert Hi,
    Both petrol and diesel versions are good but petrol version is little cheaper and serves the purpose.

  • A petrol car is always better than a Diesel as the Diesel takes a lot of load on the engine due to the higher compression ratio (twice as that of petrol) and other issues with the slow burning nature of diesel. The gap has narrowed down substantially though over the last few years and FIAT is an innovator in the Diesel Technology with Common Rail and other inventions that are common today and 1.30 is a great (best) small diesel engine. But for your usage the petrol will be more appropriate and cost effective.
