Pros have already mentioned by Holysatan. But better go for 90PS petrol as engine would be quiter and ride would be even better.
Petrol Vista would be good but considering the daily running of 75kms, a diesel makes sense since savings on fuel would be better.
Also, re-sale value for diesel is good. There might be very few takers for petrol version when he is trying to sell it off

I really doubt the re-sale value of both inspite of being very good cars.
Also, the Vista has much better shoulder/leg-room compared to these I guess.

As soon as i got Holy's comments i called up Tata showroom here and asked them the details. And guess what, they said that it cannot be delivered within 6 days at all because of some problem in transportation. There are 2 vehicles which have been booked. But my Dad has said that he will try to talk to those who have booked to see if they can extend their booking, giving this car to us. But anyway we cannot rest on that because its a coin toss. What are the other options i have if not Vista?
Good that you have checked with the showroom guys right away searchingheaven!
One point I would like to put in here is that, almost all the cars will have a waiting period of more than a week or so considering diesel. The best thing you could do is to book the car and arrange some other transport plan for the few days (waiting period) if possible.
Regarding other options, a diesel Ritz would also be a good option. It has got more spacious interiors than the Swift but comes at a lesser rate & lesser waiting period.
Try Maruti showrooms for petrol versions of Ritz, Swift if they are available for immediate delivery. Even though these are petrol models, there will be takers for it when you are going to sell because they carry a Maruti brand value.
My priority would be:
1) Indica Vista Quadrajet Diesel(90HP not advisable because you/your mom is not going to drive it)
2) Diesel Ritz
3) Petrol Swift/Ritz
Any other suggestions are most welcome!
