I have my doubts on this reasoning? Would you spend 3 lakh rupees more on the initial purchase for only 10 - 15% more fuel-economy? Or are there other reasons?
Thanks GTO, honored to have your input :-) On the price, indeed there is an other reason - I'll pay fuel only (emi is on co).

Now, I have very little knowledge about Indigo Diesel. Any inputs are welcome. Is the XL worth more over regular?

Fiesta with a tuning box should take care of the performance and FE part. Next best option is to go for a verna. when you have such a huge range as budget for your FE, i am surprised your car selection parameter is mainly on FE

Okay, so thats why you want Fuel efficient.
You are going to self drive?
In that case(as someone who has owned numerous Tata's) I suggest stay away from Indigo as Verna/Fiesta will give equal(if not better FE).
If you look at city mileage of Fiesta/Verna/Indigo/Logan they all be within 5% of each other. So it won't matter much.
I suggest you take a test drive of all(including the XL if you will be in back seat) and then choose the one which is more comfortable.
