    On Hilly Areas - one should ideally prefer cars with high torque and high power - It gives better control and stability in driving even in lower gears.
    Generally Diesel cars have better torque over counterpart Petrol Cars

    Will recommend to buy car:-
    - Power Steering with ESP (Electronic Stability Program) is an ideal feature for better maneuverability while driving
    - with ABS (Anti Brake System) to avoid Skids on highways to avoid skids on sudden brakes
    - With Fog Lights in both Front and Rear (If not there in showroom condition car - do get it before moving to hilly areas)
    - Buy Cars with High Ground Clearance

    Budget hence becomes a key factor.

    You probably have to look at Beat Top End - LT Option Diesel - if budget is not constraint choose Swift Top End Diesel

    Pl note - Above features are recommended. There are cars also which are been driven without power steering, esp, abs, fog lights in India in hilly areas. It all depends - how well one looking to drive safe.
