Question Petrol or Diesel ? Which Sedan at 5 L ?

[FONT=Arial]Hello friends,[/FONT]
[FONT=Arial]I am a newbie to site but I have been hooked to this site by seeing the quality of discussions / help offered by people here. Keep it up!![/FONT]
[FONT=Arial] [/FONT]
[FONT=Arial]I am looking to buy an entry-level sedan with a budget of 5L (on-road). It will be my first car & I will be driving it myself, mostly in city traffic (Kolkata). Monthly usage would be around 1000 KM. I am not too concerned about resale value, exceptional torque etc but my biggest priorities are [/FONT]
[FONT=Arial] [/FONT]
[FONT=Arial]1. Running / maintenance cost (should be a hassle-free car)[/FONT]
[FONT=Arial]2. Good Fuel Economy [/FONT]
[FONT=Arial]3. Security / safety[/FONT]
[FONT=Arial]4. Driving pleasure[/FONT]
[FONT=Arial]5. After-sales service[/FONT]
[FONT=Arial] [/FONT]
[FONT=Arial]With this background, I would request you folks to help me out on the following concerns[/FONT]
[FONT=Arial] [/FONT]
  • [FONT=Arial]Should I buy a diesel car or stick petrol car (pls consider fuel cost & maintenance cost..) ?[/FONT]
  • [FONT=Arial]Which model should I choose? I have narrowed it to Ikon Flair 1.3, Indigo LS and Esteem LXi. Any other option? [/FONT]
  • [FONT=Arial]What is FE of Ikon Flair 1.3 ?[/FONT]
  • [FONT=Arial]Any tip on negotiating with the dealers?[/FONT]
  • [FONT=Arial]Is there any option of converting to CNG / LPG in Kolkata ?[/FONT]
[FONT=Arial]Hope you guys will help me decide. [/FONT]
