Tuscon GL AT diesel or GLS AT gasoline? Which is better?

#1 Postby MetalX » Mon Sep 19, 2011 1:46 pm

Hi Guys,

Please help me decide which to buy? The Tucson Gas GLS AT 4x2 or the Diesel GL AT 4x4?

The diesel variant is currently not available due to lack of supply. So I'm being offered the Gas GLS instead, which the casa claims better in terms of maintenance cost.

What is the fuel consumption of these Tucson models? And which is a better buy? I'll be using this as a daily drive to office, with rush hour traffic everyday and some flooding of the streets of metro manila.

Do you expect to drive a lot? High mileage, go for diesel.
Diesel maintenace is generally more.
Do you really need a 4WD?
Is there a difference in price? Will that help you decide?

I will use average 40km daily of city driving, in which 4x4 is not needed. The price difference is ~P200k. What could help me decide is the fuel consumption of these 2 unit and the maintenance cost.

Over 80,000 km, my diesel stays around 7 litres/100km around town and about 6.7 litres on a good run. It is the 140 bhp diesel with 4WD and 6 speed manual box.
Black 140 hp Diesel Luxe.
