Have you looked in your owner's manual? It will list approved viscosities for the ambient temperature range you expect during the time the oil is in the car.

Brand is irrelevant! Select the most current American Petroleum Institute specification for spark ignition engines, which is "SL". The API spec is listed on the label.

It is unlikely that you will find anything on store shelves that is other than "SL" or "CI-4" for diesel engines.
