In the BS6 era, when you factor in the initial purchase cost, current fuel prices (overall running costs) and the fuel efficiency figures on offer, petrol cars simply make for a more sensible purchase.
But instead of taking this observation on face value, Maruti Suzuki encourages you to calculate and see it for yourself. To make that easy, we have built an online diesel vs. petrol calculator that lets you make the right choice between petrol and diesel car.
How it Works
This online calculator lets you select your state and city of residence, choose a Maruti Suzuki petrol car and an estimate of your daily driving distance. It also takes parameters such as the price and fuel efficiency of an equivalent diesel car (and variant) you might consider as an alternative and the loan details if you intend to take one.
The calculator then uses all this data and comes up with a potential figure denoting the number of kilometres you would have to cover, and the time it would take, to break even and recover the premium you would pay for a diesel car. The calculator shows which car is the best for your requirements, petrol or diesel, and to date, it has helped many car buyers make an informed choice.
Why Use the Calculator?
People fail to realise that between petrol and diesel variants, there is not much difference in the mileage but a big difference in the costs of the car, which builds up the ownership cost in the long run. With the help of this diesel car vs petrol car calculator, you can assess which fuel type will be the right choice for you based on your daily usage, fuel and maintenance costs, and car ownership cycle.
