The lower interest rate is always preferred because interest is the amount you pay for borrowing money. In either case, you'll have to pay back the principle, so it amounts to a cost of money borrowed issue. By opting for a lower periodic payment, you are spending more to borrow the same money. Not the best option unless you are the lender.

All things being equal, a loan with lower present value is preferred to a loan with lower periodic installment. Simply because you are paying a lower interest. A present value of a loan is determined by 1) amount of loan 2) interest rate 3) number of payment frequency such as monthly, weekly, and etc 4) the size of each periodic payment 5) time of the loan So if 1,3, and 5 remain the same and only 2 and 4 can change, then the relationship is of 2 and 4 is positively correlated. That is the higher the interest rate the higher the size of periodic payment.

loan with lower present value means higher tenure of repayment & because of this higher tenure its present value factor increases and its present value gets reduced. on the other hand loan with lower periodic installments means again you are making repayments over longer period of time. so as far as my knowledge is concerned, both are same

The answer is it depends. Assuming that the way that you get the present value of the loan is by applying a discount rate to the payment stream to both loans, the obvious answer would be that the desirable one is the one with the lowest present value. However, things are not so simple. You also have to take into consideration the impact on your cash flow. The following thoughts will give you an idea of where I am coming from. - By paying a lower payment, you will have extra cash available to invest. - What kind of return can you make on this extra cash? - This is the main reason why borrowers want longer maturities.
