Depending on the variant, you’ll have to cover 1.05 lakh kilometres to 1.13 lakh kilometres with the Hyundai i20 diesel manual to recover the extra price you pay upfront over the i20 petrol.

Should You Buy Hyundai i20 Petrol Or Diesel?

With a km-to-breakeven figure ranging between 1.05 lakh kilometres to 1.13 lakh kilometres, it is difficult to recommend the i20 diesel over the i20 petrol variants. Hence, if you want to enjoy lower running costs while owning the Hyundai i20, we would recommend buying the i20 petrol. Moreover, the i20 diesel is not available with an automatic transmission.

However, if you see yourself owning the car for 8 years or more and cover over 1 lakh kilometres, then by all means you could consider the i20 diesel. The i20 diesel not only offers more power and torque than the normal petrol engine variants but is also one of the few hatchbacks in the segment that continue to offer a diesel engine option.

You can use our Fuel Cost Calculator to see how much any petrol, diesel or CNG car will cost to run based on the latest fuel price in your city.
