In fourth place on our list of the best mileage cars in India is another Maruti. The Baleno shares its engine with the Swift. However, it returns a higher mileage of 27.39 kmpl. This is thanks to a lower kerb weight. The car is marketed as a premium hatchback and is sold through the new Nexa sales channel.

5. Honda Jazz Diesel– 27.3 kmpl

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 in 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 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.
