Petrol - More BHP = Better Pickup.
Diesel - More Torque = More pulling power.
CRDi Turbo Diesel - More Torque + Good Pickup, after the turbo starts spinning.

Advice: Go for any well powered CRDi Turbo Diesel, like Swift, Palio Multijet, Indica Quadrajet, Fusion TCDi, Fiesta TCDi, Verna CRDi, Accent CRDi (only second hand available), Octavia TDi, Laura TDi etc etc and the list goes on..

Both produce same power, but diesel produces more torque at the expense of speed whereas petrol engine it is vice versa.

Diesel engines stroke length is more than that of petrol which in turn is because of higher compression ratio.hence diesel engine rotate slower than petrol
