Since you have done research you know that both are same cars essentially and the difference is just the boot .
Do you need the extra boot provided by the dezire in your daily day to day drives ? If yes buy dezire if not buy swift .

if you travel just 30 kilometers daily then i'll say go for the petrol. you'll save a lot more money because your daily commute is not more than 60 kilometers but if you have decided you have to go for a diesel then both have its advantage and disadvantages.

swift will be easier to park in tight places where as dzire will give you extra boot space.

since the engine is the same i reckon dzire will give comparatively less mileage than the swift , i mean the weight of the dzire is obviously more.

my daily commute is just 30 kilometers just like you and i opted for a petrol sedan and i don't regret it.

Hi, Thanks for your valuable reply.

Yes, some of my friends also suggested me to take petrol version rathar going for diesel version but if we see petrol Fuel effeciency is lesser than diesel and petrol cost is also expensive than diesel. one thing i know that diesel car price is appx 1.5lac higher than petrol car.

Please let me know the advantages and disadvantages of petrol and diesel engines since i am travelling only 30KM per day (1000KM per month).

If you suggest me petrol version, which Sedan gives better mileage in city as i am new driver. my budget is around 8 to 9 lacs(not more than 9lacs) and looking for middle/top end.

Thanks in advance.....

Honda City is one of the best petrol sedans in India, in petrol u wont get a better refined engine and FE is best in its class. Honda service is the icing on the cake. also added positive is the resale value as and when you decide to sell it.

@Kasetty,

Since it is your first car, I suggest the following looking at your usage, required FE and more to the today's Hyderabad traffic conditions. Though you have bit more budget,still

Go for a hatch back since it is your first car and parking becomes easy
Go for a petrol one according to your usage
Go for a 1000cc car if you are more keen on FE

options mentioned in the serial order or preference,1st with first preference.


the options are Alto K10, Spark, Beat, Brio, Micra,Santro,I10

If you want a diesel one a hatchback, then
Go for Punto, Swift, Ritz,Vista,Beat,I20,Figo

If you want a petrol sedan, then
Go for Honda city, Mahindra Verito, Dzire(sorry I do not consider it as sedan),fiesta,verna,Nissan Sunny
If you want a diesel sedan, then
Mahindra Verito, Dzire,Fiesta classic,TATA Manza,Nissan Sunny,Verna

Hope this will help you [:)]

i'm so sorry , i forgot you mentioned this is your first car.

see if you have a budget of 9 lakhs and you won't have any problem driving a sedan then go for a petrol sedan but as gurrula mentioned sedan's mileage will be much lower than any hatchback.

Please try and search this topic in the forum, you find plenty of information on this with beautiful examples too !! hence I feel it is not so relevant for this thread to have that discussion here where you really loose focus of your selection [:)]

See if you buy a diesel , the break even point or you'll recover your money in a minimum 5 years.

The petrol price will pinch you but if you buy diesel you'll end up paying even more. Decide a car and tell us the prices of the diesel and petrol variant and we'll calculate for you.

Break-even point will vary on usage. For me i was able to break-even in 6 months time and I opted for diesel.

to decide between petrol vs diesel, you will have to consider
  • don't just think about daily usage.
  • consider weekend usage. you might easily cross 100-150KM in a single weekend
  • also look into the number of long drives you take for a year
  • car budget finance vs cash. if finance then how much finance amount?
  • more over petrol price is almost 40% more than diesel price
  • average mileage you can expect from petrol vs diesel
Do all these math's properly. you will get an easy idea on whether to go for petrol OR diesel. Then you look for which car/brand/model to go for.

Hi, Thanks for your quick response..I would like to go for Swift ZXi/ZDi.

On road price of Swift ZXI - Rs. 6,79,571, ZDI - Rs.8,04,926

Down payment would be 3-4 lacs (min 3lacs and max 4lacs)

Daily commute 30KM (Minimum 1000KM per month). Highway drives occassionally (Apprx 600KM, once in 3months)

Swift Petrol average mileage in city - 15KMPL and Diesel - 18KMPL

I think I would get less mileage than above mentioned numbers since i am new driver...based on these things, plz suggest me....diesel or petrol..

I vote for ZDI, but really now convinced with the price[cry] for a hatch, for that price you can by a good diesel Sedan either fiesta,Manza,New Verito !!
