Answers for this Question
Go for petrol for following reasons: 1.) The diesel variant will be costlier than the petrol(lets say 60,000 more), so, if your monthly run is just 500KM, i.e. yearly run of about 6000KM. So if your petrol car gives you a mileage of 15 KM/L, it means you will burn 400 Ltrs of petrol in 1 year. Assuming price of petrol to be 70 per/l, your yearly expenditure on fuel will be 28,000, so in 2 years, you will spend 56,000 on fuel and still save 4000 which you would have spent on diesel car itself. 2.) 500 KM per month is just too less for a diesel car, go for diesel car if your minimum daily run is 40-50 KM, i.e. minimum monthly run of about 1500KM.(in this case, your yearly expenditure on petrol would be 84,000). So, if we take Diesel at 45 per/l, you will spend 40,500 on fuel at mileage of 20 per/l. So, I would suggest you to go for petrol car.

Hi, First of all, as per your commuting needs, we will suggest you to for a petrol car. Secondly, the cars suggested by you include cars from two different segments i.e mid-sized saloons and compact sedans, while Honda City and Tata Manza are midsized saloons, the Sail is a compact sedan. In all three cars, City is the best as it is powerful, refined and reliable. City also looks best among three and has best interiors. The car is spacious and as it is very popular, you will also get a better resale value.
