  • Q. Looking at the recent decision by court regarding Diesel Engine limited to 10 years on road (In NCR region), i am confused between whether to choose GTX+ 1.0 Turbo Petrol iMT variant or GTX+ 1.5 Diesel 6MT. I live in Bangalore, and look for more power and need car for a longer time span (10+ years). Further the engine is BS6 compliant. Just worried thinking about future. Would it be right decision to go for Diesel?

    Selecting the right fuel type depends on your utility and average running of the car. If you drive less then 50km in a day then we recommend you to go with a petrol car as they are easy to maintain, have a longer life span and they cost less initially then the diesel car. On the other hand, diesel cars are preferred if the average daily run is more than 50km which makes it a feasible purchase. The diesel cars are more fuel efficient and provide more torque, therefore, are preferred for a person who drives more than 50km. Whereas, petrol engine has a low service cost, more life span, generally have a well-controlled NVH level and are cheaper in cost than the diesel engines. As for the future concerns, the diesel engines will be available for a longer time period so no worries there.Moreover, we would suggest you to take a test drive before making the final decision.
