Posted Thu, 05/24/2012 - 19:52 by admin
The entire Indian population got up to a bolt from the blue in the morning today with the Indian government hiking the petrol prices further. This time it’s not just a couple of rupees but a substantial amount of Rs. 7 or more in other cities. Everyone is stunned at the kind of steep increase in the fuel as it will send the common man’s monthly budget in a tizzy. There are a lot of revolts and objections on this hike from each and every stratum of the society. The automobile fraternity is further shocked as they were already undergoing a slump due to the increase in the excise duty and other taxes. With this hike in the fuel, the car sales will further crash and will hit an all-time low, but at the same time there is no hike in diesel price as yet. This will further fuel the demand for diesel cars, but at the same time will imbalance the equation among the cars. Tata Cars might be one of the biggest sellers of vehicles as they are majorly into diesel engine cars manufacturing. They are expected to launch their brand new SUV, Tata Safari Storme anytime now and now with this hike, this diesel engine based SUV will do tremendous business for the company.
Several Tata Safari Storme Reviews state that, this SUV has been packed with some top class, high quality features when compared with the earlier version and is expected to be priced around Rs. 10 lakh approximately. There are some speculations that even diesel prices will be hiked, but there is no confirmed news regarding it so far. All these happenings also make a common man think, whether a petrol car is better or a diesel engine based car. Well, there are a lot of such differences to talk about, but at the same time it is very important for any buyer to understand, how much they will use the car, how many kilometers per day is the running of their car and whether the car will be used every day or sparingly. Petrol engines are known for their quick pickup, smooth ignition even after being standing for a several days and many more such benefits. Whereas diesel engine based cars are no more like earlier versions, which used to make a lot of sound, vibrations and all. Other benefits of these new diesel engine based cars and SUV car is an increased mileage and better fuel efficiency, emissions have become cleaner owing to the advanced diesel technologies and the maintenance costs have also been reduced as compared to earlier.
