2. The Optra Magnum is better to drive.

3. Far better resale.
Convincing & clear logic, I must say! - especially on the first point. I would say that all the three points mentioned would apply for a discussion between verna petrol and verna diesel as well.

Congrats on the choice of car Mansi. Looking forward to the reviews on the car. Enjoy the new car (once it is delivered of course) and drive safe.

May be of academic intrest, but that's a difference of only 5 mm (half a cm).
