EXCEPT MILEAGE WISE AND PRICE WISE WHAT ARE THE MAIN HI LIGHTS BETWEEN A SWIFT HATCH BACK PETROL VERSION AND A DIESEL VERSION ?.....I MEAN I WANTED TO KNOW WHY THE PEOPLE NORMALLY GO BEHIND THE DIESEL VERSION ALWAYS INSTEAD OF PETROL...? PETROL CARS ARE NOT GOOD FOR DRIVING OR DIESEL CARS GIVES THEM MORE COMFORT IN DRIVING..? I HEARD FROM SO MANY PEOPLE THAT IF YOU DO NOT USE THE DIESEL CAR FOR QUITE A LONG TIME THE BATTERY WILL GET DAMAGED BUT IT'S NEVER HAPPEN IN PETROL ENGINED VEHICLE...IS IT TRUE ? RAJIV.

  • Expert Hi,
    There are no much difference inSwift diesel and petrol except change of engine and relevent fuel supply system.
    People prefer diesel versions with the view of reduction incost per liter of fuel and mileage per liter.However it comes with higher initial investment.If the car is used for long runs on regular basis then diesel version will be cost effective.If the vehicle is not used for quite some time the battery charge wilolo be downin oth diesel and petrol versions.Its recommended to disconnect battery connections if vehicle is expected to be not used for quite sometime.
    Petrol versions have smoother performance,faster pick up and lesser noise than diesel engines and will make best choice for perosonal utility.
