Fuel efficiency is an important purchase consideration for the average Indian car owner. Over the long-term, running costs contribute significantly to the overall cost of owning a car. This is the reason why many Indians prefer to opt for the diesel variant of a car, even though it tends to be expensive to purchase up-front compared to a petrol variant.

Diesel car mileage, on an average, is 25% higher than that of a petrol car, and the improved fuel efficiency more than covers the extra cost of the car paid.
