Am a middle class family. I would like to buy a new Maruti Suzuki Ertiga car and confused which type of car choosing diesel or petrol. Pls advise best buy in Ertiga Petrol and Diesel
Admin Accepted Answer

Ertiga is a good choice, and now available with
> 1.5 Litre DDIS 225 Diesel Engine
> 1.5 Litre K15 Petrol Engine

However, there is a big difference, while Ertiga is BS-6 Compliant, the DDIS 225 Diesel Engine is BS-4 Compliant
Been certainly the diesel engine is better fuel efficient and the new engine is refined too, but its BS-4 compliant and considering the future
> regime which would be of BS6 Cars
> Petrol cars are allowed to be driven for 15 years, while a ban imposed post 10 years on plying diesel cars as Delhi an example. The stated ban may well extent to other cities in near future facing problem of high pollution will impact resale and usability of car on longer term
> Diesel cars maintenance cost, service replacement of filter is at earlier stage with some items like Battery, clutch is on higher side
> Needless to mention is having higher upfront cost, interest cost on financing for price differential and higher pollution

Given a choice, if daily running is not 60 Kms then Petrol should be the defacto choice for Ertiga
Hope should help !!
