      Depends on what are you looking for and how you define better?

      If you're looking for financials : Petrol Car or Diesel Car?

      Future of Diesel or Petrol : Diesel is Dead ?

      Well considering you aint gonna keep it for next 20 years. And if you going to drive between cities or plan excursions I will say Diesel. High torque, good mileage. It is fun.
      Perfection is impression

      If you love the lag, turbo and the grunt... it is always a diesel!

      If you are in NCR, and plan to buy either a second hand car or keep your cars for long times 6+ years then petrol makes more sense IMO. petrol car has better resale value and is usually cheaper to maintain.
      If you have high running, at least more than 1500km per month and would sell off your car in 4-5 years then diesel would suit you better.

      Agreed but Petrols dont always have better resale
      Depends on engines though definitely petrol is better for long run given all factors
      But diesels have better driveability
      For example 1.3 MJD was better in bumper to bumper conditions than 1.5 IVTEC(My personal experience after owning Ritz and City)
      Though honestly I cant make up my mind about which is better
      Though nothing says performance like my 2017 Tucson diesel, has characteristics of petrols and diesels in its performance

      I agree with the driveability. I like turbos. Yes. But I was just referring to resale value according to NCR as I am in NCR and after the diesel ban the resale prices have really taken a hit and it just seems to make sense to buy a petrol now instead of a diesel car, for me at least.

      Diesel turbo do have more torque but once you get used to being on right gear it is not a problem.

      In that context, certainly Id anticipate the same for future, you are right there
      Must admit, hybrid petrols seem to be the future in India given diesels are getting unpopular off late worldwide and I dont see full electrics making practical sense , NA petrols have poor mileage, turbo petrols have poor driveability for city traffic, so hybrid petrols might be the solution

      However I dont see diesels going away anytime soon for India, too many people are invested in the same wrt commercial vehicles and high end vehicles

      Petrols need to be revved even in 1st gear for bumper to bumper conditions,can be slightly annoying especially if you have engines such as 1.5 IVTEC or 1.0 Ecoboost or any of the VW petrol engines whose low end torque is very low
      Once its in the rev band, 1.5 IVTEC absolutely flies , I personally didnt like the city driving of VW's 1.6 MPI,1.5 TDI and 1.2TSI (DSG variants-TSI,TDI and torque converter-MPI) compared to IVTEC
