Should You Buy Hyundai Alcazar Petrol Or Diesel?

With the Hyundai Alcazar, the large normal petrol engine gives it a significantly lower mileage figure than its 2-row sibling, the Creta. Meanwhile the 1.5L turbo diesel gives it satisfactory torque at barely any additional cost. Thus, the Alcazar diesel will take about 10,000 - 20,000km to recover the small upfront additional cost for the diesel engine. So, with the Alcazar, we’ll recommend buying the 1.5L turbo diesel engine over the larger 2.0L normal petrol engine. The only catch here is that diesel engines take longer to warm up. If you mostly make shorter trips, the petrol engine will achieve its peak efficiency much sooner. Otherwise, the diesel engine makes more financial sense with the Alcazar.

    However, the resale value of Diesel car is much less compared to Petrol car. So if after 5 years of use you get resale value of Petrol Alcazar as Rs 8 lacs you will get only 6lacs for diesel
