    Default Petrol or Diesel Corolla

    AoA all,
    contemplating the idea of purchasing a new Corolla in the summer InshaAllah. Will be purchased in Islamabad where I'll be living.
    With the price hike in petrol prices, the diesel surely seems to be the answer. On the other hand I havent test driven the 2.0D and not even sure if the dealerships in pakistan would allow a test drive. Here in states test drive is a simple process and unless it's a Bugati dealership, they allow it as well.
    I'd like to get an idea from the fellow memebers whether it's better to buy a petrol corolla and put in a CNG kit or should I buy a 2.0D InshaAllah.
    looking forward to ur replies.
    thnx.

    @ahsan,
    the pick if you mean a 0-60 time is way better in petrol than in diesel.
    however there's more torque in the diesel engine.
    try to drive both and compare for yourself as to what suits your driving style.

    yes i was referring to the 1.3, see any petrol even if it's going to be a 1.0 will have a better pickup than most of the diesels. unless it's a turbo diesel, the the turbo will make up for the lag and come close or even better than the petrol competition.
    best of luck with whichever way you go.
