Thanks for response.
Also, would like to know if any Brands have cars in current market (or) scheduled to release Diesel +Auto transmission + under 10,00,000 Rs/-
Hyundai Verna is looking good for the criteria. But wondering if any to compare with under 10,00,000 Rs/- price. Also would like to know if VW, Skoda, Maruti has any plan to release such variants (ex:VW Vento, Skoda Rapid, Maruti/Suzuki SX4 with Diesel +Auto transmission + under 10,00,000 Rs/-).

Hey, we would suggest you to go for the Endeavour 2.2 here as it is Cheaper, optional automatic and good for limited usage. Fortuner petrol indeed is a good option. However, The Endeavour diesel is cheaper to buy compared to the Fortuner petrol by nearly 2 lakh for the automatic Trend variant. Infact, the top-spec Endeavour 2.2 AT 4x2 is on par with the petrol Fortuner automatic also Fortuner is more expensive and would not deliver mileage as the Endeavor. Hence, Endeavor is a better deal here. Click here to check out the comparison.
Hey, if you drive for 50 kms in a day, we would suggest you to go for a diesel variant as your monthly running can be more than 1500 kms. The diesel variant though would be expensive to maintain and would cost you more than the petrol variant but you will be able to cover that cost while you drive it.

It's difficult to calculate the amount of fuel for the last bar as it depends on the calibration of the fuel gauge and that could vary. There's no confirmed number to quote, and it's best to fill the tank to its full capacity as soon as fuel level drops to a quarter, as that will also help improve efficiency in a small way.
