Looking at the rising prices of petrol, car buyers are now looking for new options. Diesel cars have always been the first choice for those who want more mileage. But diesel cars have their own advantages and disadvantages. Many buyers remain confused whether they should buy a petrol vehicle or a diesel vehicle. What will be the right decision depends on many different aspects. This includes from the cost of the car to the maintenance cost. Here we are going to tell you some such points, through which you will be able to decide whether you should take a petrol car or diesel.
1. Price of the car
Whenever we buy a car, we keep a budget in mind. First of all, see whether the diesel variant of the car is fitting in your budget or not. Let us also tell you that the price of the diesel variant is more by about Rs 1 lakh as compared to the petrol variant.
2. Mileage of the car
Obviously you get more mileage in a diesel vehicle. The advantage of a petrol car is that you get good starting power in it, while the diesel car gives good performance in high gear. This simply means that if you have to drive only in the city, and have to cover a short distance, then a petrol car will be good. Whereas for long distance journeys, there will be an advantage in a diesel car.
3. Maintenance Cost
Like the price of the car, the maintenance cost of petrol and diesel cars also differs. The maintenance cost of diesel cars is higher than that of petrol cars. Its cost in service and maintenance is 1000 to 2000 rupees more.
4. Life Cycle
The life cycle of both the vehicles is also different. In Delhi-NCR, petrol cars can be used for 15 years and diesel cars only for 10 years. After this, either transfer the diesel car to another state, otherwise their registration will be cancelled.
The level of pollution from both the vehicles is also different. Diesel cars are more harmful to the environment. Diesel cars emit more NO2 than petrol.
