Your decision to go for a diesel needs to be relooked at in light of falling petrol and rising diesel prices. Please do some mathematics before deciding on the same. Chances are that even today, diesel will win over petrol, however, in the long-run, if Indian government does bite the no subsidy bullet for diesel, then one can see very dramatic rise if diesel prices, making, resale of diesel powered cars a difficult task.

ARAI mileage figures for the cars under considerations are:

I20 - 21.93 KMPL

Polo - 22.07 KMPL

Micra - 23.08 KMPL

Micra should be your choice. Do note that real life mileage would be lower by at least 30-35% of ARAI mileage. But then that formula will work on all cars under consideration.

We at www.ecardlr.com always recommend an exhaustive test drive of all cars in your consideration set. Always define your need as closely as possible and then decide. Take our inputs as suggestion only and not a final decision.
