Diesel cars are not banned inDelhi and it will never be.Overall maintenance of diesel version is higher than petrol but it will be cost effective if used regularly for long drives.Diesel version Swift gives average mileage of 17KMPL.

It is immpossible for any government to ban diesel vehicles in any part of world ,maintainence of diesel cars are always higher than petrol cars,my diesel seift gives me the avaerage of 15KMPL

Answer by Nagesh Shukla 12 December 2009

I usually drive on highways and free roads, and have received a mileage of 19-23kpl with regular diesel.
Ownership cost in the past 2 years has only been the maintenance, about 1-3K every 3 months.

If you are using the car daily for 100 KM and above it is better to buy diesel version. Otherwise Petrol is better to drive and maintain.

Always diesel engine are the high maintenance than petrol.

Swift may be give the avaerage of 17KMPL It may be increase or digrease depending upon your driving.
