Dear Naresh, Since you mention that your monthly running is between 1,200-1,500 kms, we would recommend you stick to buying a petrol car. In everyday use in city traffic, the i20 petrol with the 1.2-litre Kappa engine will manage about 12 kpl with AC. The diesel will be more fuel efficient, but the turbo lag makes it difficult to drive smoothly in traffic. Also, the higher purchase price of the diesel model will only be offset if your car will be running at least 1,800-2,000 kms, and even then will begin to pay for itself only after 3 years or so.
