The Super diesel is Rs. 1.53 lakh more expensive while the Shine diesel’s price is Rs. 2 lakh higher than the corresponding petrol variants. So, for Super variant buyers, the decision to jump to the diesel engine is straightforward as they will only need to drive the car for about 89,000km to recover the higher upfront costs. However, the Shine variant buyers will have to drive it for one 1.16 lakh kilometres to break even. So, we will not recommend Shine buyers to upgrade to the diesel engine unless you see yourself covering more than 1.16 lakh kilometres during your period of ownership.
