Manufacturers like Maruti Suzuki, Volkswagen, Skoda, Nissan And Renault, on the other hand, offer petrol-only cars now

While many carmakers are phasing out diesel engines due to stricter emission norms, some are still keeping them alive. Diesel cars often demand a premium over the petrol ones, but they offer relatively better fuel efficiency and the diesel rates are slightly lower than petrol, reducing the overall running costs. Only a few models within a Rs 10 lakh budget are still offered with both petrol and diesel engines. Here’s the list of top 10 cars that come with a choice of petrol and diesel engines.
