Best Mileage Cars in India with Prices, Specifications

1. Maruti Ciaz Diesel SHVS- 28.09 kmpl

Maruti’s mid-size sedan offering, the Ciaz sits at the top of the Best Mileage Cars in India list. It is the most fuel-efficient sedan on sale in India. The Ciaz Diesel has an ARAI certified mileage of 28.09 kmpl. These figures are better than the Honda City. No surprise, then, that the Ciaz has even outsold the City. The Ciaz has been a really successful model for Maruti Suzuki.

2. Maruti Celerio Diesel DDiS 125- 27.62 kmpl

The Maruti Celerio Diesel has a 2 cylinder, 793cc diesel motor. It returns a very healthy 27.62 kmpl. This makes it one of the best mileage cars in India. The engine produces just 47 bhp of power and 125 Nm torque. Based on our experience with the Celerio diesel we can say that although that claim is not entirely unsubstantiated, the lack of power is evident past the 80 km/h mark. And then there are the NVH levels which are not very car like.

3. Maruti Baleno Diesel– 27.39 kmpl

Rounding off the top three spots in our list of the best mileage cars in India is another Maruti. The Baleno shares its engine with the Swift/Dzire. However, it returns a higher mileage of 27.39 kpl. This is thanks to a lower kerb weight. The car is marketed as a premium hatchback and is sold throuh the new Nexa sales channel. It was been very well received by the Indian car buying lot as evident from its strongly monthly sales and a waiting period of around 6 months.

4. New Model Honda Jazz Diesel– 27.3 kmpl

Honda has left no stone unturned for the Jazz’s second stint in India. This time around the Jazz is cheaper than before and comes with a diesel engine option as well. This diesel motor, shared with the Amaze, Mobilio and City, returns an ARAI certified mileage of 27.3 kmpl. Which makes it the third most fuel efficient car India, behind the Maruti Ciaz and Maruti Celerio diesel DDiS 125. The Jazz is a direct rival to Hyundai’s Elite i20, but, although it boasts of higher mileage figures, it hasn’t been able to match the i20’s popularity. The 1.5 litre iDTEC diesel motor powering the new model Honda Jazz is good for 100PS power and 200Nm torque, but it is let down by high NVH levels.

5. Tata Tiago Diesel– 27.28 kmpl

Tata’s brand new hatchback, the Tiago, and it’s 1.05 L diesel mill return a claimed mileage of 27.28 kmpl. Launched at a starting price of just INR 3.2 lacs, the Tiago competes with the likes of the Celerio, Beat, Brio, etc. Although the Celerio Diesel is marginally more fuel efficient, but it also sports a smaller 800 cc engine that is less powerful than the Tiago’s 1.05 L unit. Tata is betting big on the Tiago as it hopes this new hatchback can help it claw back some of the market share they have lost over the years and being one of the Best mileage cars in India should definitely help.

  • Variants: XB, XE, XM, XT, XZ
  • Specifications: 1.05-litre diesel, 69 bhp and 140Nm

6. Maruti Swift Dzire Diesel– 26.59 kmpl

The Swift Dzire facelift comes with improved mileage of 26.59 kmpl. This is more than the pre-facelift version’s 23.4 kmpl. A few tweaks to the ECU enables Maruti to pull this off making the Dzire more fuel efficient than its major competitor, Honda Amaze. The car is already the highest selling compact sedan in India, something that it will continue to be thanks to the improved mileage. Maruti now offers a 5-speed AMT unit with the Dzire, which they claim is as fuel efficient as the Manual variants.

7. Honda City Diesel– 26 kmpl

There are various reason for the popularity of the Honda City, one of the major ones being the very healthy mileage it returns. However, it misses out on entering the top 5 Best Mileage cars in India list by a small margin. The Maruti Ciaz managed to better the City’s figures, but only by a very small margin ensuring that the car remains at the top of the pile. And then there is the brand image the Honda City enjoys which has made it the pick of the segment amongst the Indian car buyers. The City domination seems unlikely to end.

8. Ford Figo/Aspire Diesel– 25.83 kmpl

Ford launched the Figo twins last year. Both these cars are easily one of the best in their respective segments. Powering the Diesel variants is the brilliant 1.5 L TDCi engine that churns out 99 BHP and 215 Nm that delivers not just good performance, but great mileage as well. The hatchback and sedan siblings boast of an ARAI rated mileage of 25.83 kpl.

9. Honda Amaze Diesel– 25.8 kmpl

The Honda Amaze used to be the fuel efficiency king of the diesel compact sedans before the facelifted Maruti Swift Dzire. It still returns a very impressive 25.8 kmpl which ensures the Amaze is easy on your pockets and cheap to run. Although it suffers from some refinement issues with customers complaining the diesel motor as a bit rough and due to poor sound insulation the noise filters through to the cabin, something which is a bit uncharacteristic of a Honda. The Amaze remains a very capable car nonetheless and continues to sell in decent numbers.
