    I Wl suggests better go for Petrol Version.Readons : Less than 1000Kms Running per Month. Prices of Diesel are not very Less , compared to Petrol. Initially you wl End up Paying 1 Lakh Rupees More. Maintenance Bills are Higher than Petrol. Particularly Cabin Noise is More in Diesel Version .in Honda City compared to other Equivalent Brands. Average wl be just 3/4 Kms More with AC . My average Running is also same as yours.Why to pay 1 lakh more and to Listen Noise . My Thinking is when one can Afford to Pay 10Lakhs PLUS + , FORGET KITNA DETI HAI ??? HONDA CITY IS A STATUS SYMBOL CAR. GO FOR PETROL. Or Go for MARUTI CIAZ TO SAVE MONEY. This is my Opinion. Rest you Decide.

    Honda has been known for its Petrol version cars. but nevertheless Honda Diesel is also not a bad engine. if your travel is 200-300 kms in a week then Diesel is the best option for you as it will prove cost effective. Honda Automatic has been built to give better mileage than the Manual counterparts. I own a Honda City Automatic. In city it gives me around 10-12kms with AC ON all the time. on highways it gives me around 14-16kms despite of me paddling it hard and with speeds of 90-120 kms on highways. Keep your car serviced on time and it will give its best outcome.

    Dear , diesel version will perfect for u as u travel more then 200 km per day . Its mileage is 25 + in diesel and seat are more comfortable as compared to Verna baleno and ciaz , it's my personal experience , and it's all myths about maintenance of Honda City that its maintenance is costly and one main important thing is u will not tired in Honda City for continued driving up to 200 to 400 km per day . Bcs it's very comfortable

    I drive 80-90 kms a day. Mine is petron Automatic i get around 12 approx. my other car is jazz diesel manual(same engine) and it gives me around 18. If you don't mind spending few bucks extra for comfort go for Automatic it is easily the best in the market.weird fact sport mode manual gives better mileage

    Since the car returns a mileage of 14-15 in normal driving conditions, it won't be much of an issue. I myself cover a distance of 300+kms weekly, and am not facing much of an issue. Honda's petrol engines are butter smooth and super reliable. So my suggestion is that you should go for the petrol.

    It's obvious that diesel cars generate a lot of toxic gases and stuff..BTW if u travel in the city for 200-300 km I would suggest you to go for diesel and if it highway that you travel petrol cars are as affective as diesel cars while compared to mileage on the highway.

    Petrol honda city is smoother and comfortable to drive, with less engine noise. Coastwise both petrol and diesel will almost be similar as you would spend more at the diesel vehicle cost and the fuel type difference is hardly 4 rupees.

    Since India is moving towards BS6, it is better to go for petrol rather than diesel. Since you say you travel a lot, Maintenance of petrol is cheaper than the diesel engine option
