Why diesel cars are costly / expensive than the petrol?

I was wondering why diesel cars are more expensive than the petrol cars, is it because most of the indian public buy diesel cars and manufacturers are getting benefit from huge demand!?!

Well, its not like that. If you consider Petrol engine, the petrol engine is easy to build up, and need no compression to burn the fuel [petrol]. Petrol engines are clearer than the diesel one, and leaves less carbon in air. Petrol engines need low maintenance.

Honda has Only petrol cars in India

On the other hand, the diesel engine need more mechanism, more efforts to be built. And thats the reason why diesel cars are expensive. Diesel engines are more polluting and lower in performance compared to petrol engines. On top of that it demands more maintenance.

AFAIK, honda has no diesel cars in India. Most popular Honda city comes only with petrol option. And so as the Honda Jazz!

If i talk about Hyundai i20, Diesel versions are 1 to 1.5 lakh more costlier than their petrol versions. Volkswagen Polo vs Maruti Suzuki Swift vs Hyundai i20
