What type of engine you purchase is a personal choice. but I can break it down to one simple thing and that is mileage. If you plan on driving on the highway for long distances, buy a diesel. If you do a lot of short trips, the petrol makes more sense.

Look at fuel cost and factor in the fuel economy difference. Diesel maintenance cost is usually higher.
