Question of the day: Which is the best diesel car within Rs.15 lakh, with sunroof?

Ketki Dandekar asks the community which diesel car she should buy. Ketki’s budget is Rs. 12 lakh – Rs. 15 lakh and her primary requirements are a sunroof, electrically folding mirrors and plush interiors.

The best option for Ketki is Chevrolet Cruze LTZ which gives a mileage of 17 kmpl and costs Rs. 13.66 lakh ex-showroom Delhi. It has a 1,991 cc, 4 cylinder engine that makes a massive 149 bhp of peak power at 4,000 rpm and a healthy 327 Nm of torque at 2,600 rpm.

The Cruze LTZ also comes equipped with features like ABS, front fog lamps, power steering with rake and reach adjustment, cruise control, parking sensors, climate control and off course a sunroof and electrically folding side view mirrors. You also get other cool features like steering mounted audio controls, push button start etc.

Another option is to buy any car of her choice and then install an aftermarket sunroof from trusted brands, which will set her back by roughly Rs. 70,000 for a basic sunroof.

If Ketki is willing to compromise on the sunroof she may opt for the Volkswagen Jetta and if she is willing to opt for a petrol car she may opt for the Skoda Laura RS, which is a turbo petrol and comes equipped with a sunroof.
