Which Diesel


Hi guys,
I want to book a Diesel tomorrow for obvious reasons.
I have an i20 currently for the drivers use and a 9 KMPL city petrol mileage won't be affordable now.
Budget can be stretched upto 8-9 Lakhs but sweet spot would be around 6.5-7Lakh
Considering the dzire.

What I want:
FUEL ECONOMY and DIESEL! These are the two main reasons
Interior space/legroom
comfort features.

This will be basically a drivers car, so driving pleasure isn't much of a concern.
So please suggest some good fuel efficient diesel.

Thanks!

Re: Which Diesel

I actually hate the looks of Etios...Very Logan like!
Also, toyota won't be cheap to maintain I suspect and my driver's car needs a lot of maintenance! We used to spend 20K a year on both our Indigos finally left TATA alone.

buy a suzuki with 1.3mjd. enough said.
@baba doga
can you give a carwale or any other link for the same?

Edit: How's the Etios' FE vs Dzire's FE?

Re: Which Diesel

since its a chauffered car, lets pick a sedan. which means dzire/sx4/fiesta classic/etios.

sx4 is a very good car. dzire is tiny. fiesta is old ( but trustworthy). etios is a typical toyota,maybe worse. they have cut corners like mad.

why dont you drive these cars and see what's what?

Re: Which Diesel

Well, Among the 4 above I would go for the dzire anyday!! No doubts about it since I have driven SX4, Swift, and Fiesta. Among them I liked Swift the most! Amazing pickup I must say
I got confused about what you said 1.3 mjd thingy. You meant any car which comes with a 1.3l multijet engine from suzuki kya?

I am considering this one:
Maruti Suzuki Swift DZire VDI Details - CarWale

Does this have the engine you are taking about? Sorry big newb in engine nomenclature and all that.

Re: Which Diesel

go for the nissan sunny diesel very spacious & has a big boot.86bhp of power is less but 200 nm of torque makes up for its decent performance.great mileage as well.base model XL comes with dual front airbags,electronic power steering,audio controls on steering wheel,music system sounds good lacks usb,rear window defogger,automatic climate control airconditioning,etc.check out the nissan website.on road price noida my uncle bought on 3rd may 2012 9.14 lacs with floor mats,car cover,mud flaps,perfume & divinity idol included.hyundai verna 1.4 & 1.6 diesel,skoda rapide & vento diesel are good but may not fall in your budget.maruti one can go for but somehow personally their build quality has gone down.

Re: Which Diesel

yes it has the 1.3mjd(fiat)=1.3ddis ( suzuki speak) engine. in fact, all suzuki diesel cars have the same engine.

Re: Which Diesel

etios is a slouch,tata forget it,ford i would avoid.nissan would be expensive to maintain but its a good machine well worth it.as you will have your driver driving the most you definetly want the space & the sunny does give that.seats are very comfortable & the suspension soaks up bad roads very well.
