Hyundai Grand i10 Nios AMT
The Hyundai Grand i10 Nios has been a recent success in the mid-size hatchback segment and is one of our favorites as well. It drives well, the AMT gearbox is smooth and like most other Hyundai’s, its feature packed to the brim.

Maruti Suzuki Baleno/Toyota Glanza CVT
Moving a little higher up the budget range into the premium hatchback segment, the Maruti Suzuki Baleno really stands out with its fantastic mileage with its petrol automatic variants. The Baleno is powered by a 1.2L, four-cylinder engine that produces 83hp and 113Nm of torque. However, unlike other cars in this list as of yet, the Baleno comes mated to a CVT gearbox and it returns a mileage of 19kpl in mixed driving conditions. Sadly, Maruti Suzuki does not offer the smart-hybrid system with the automatic version of the Baleno. The automatic variants of the Maruti Suzuki Baleno are priced from Rs 7.77 lakh to Rs 8.96 lakh.
The Maruti Suzuki Baleno has a sister car in the Toyota Glanza. The Glanza has exactly the same petrol-automatic powertrain option as the Baleno with identical specs and mileage. However, Toyota offers the Glanza automatic in two variants, priced from Rs 8.29 lakh to Rs 8.9 lakh.
Honda Amaze CVT
The Honda Amaze has grown hugely popular in its second generation as it marks a significant improvement over its predecessor. It’s looks may be quite polarizing and while its decently equipped on the interiors, it just lacks the flare of some of its modern counterparts. Still, what makes it stand out is its great value for money and it is also the most affordable sedan to be available with a CVT gearbox in India currently. The 1.2-litre i-VTEC petrol motor of the Honda Amaze CVT makes 90hp and 110Nm of peak torque. The fuel efficiency of the Honda Amaze CVT with the petrol engine is rated at 17kpl. Honda offers the Amaze CVT in three variants, ranging from Rs 7.74 lakh to Rs 8.78 lakh.
Maruti Suzuki Ciaz Automatic
The Maruti Suzuki Ciaz is one of the highest selling automatic sedans in the country and is currently the only BS6 sedan to be available with a conventional automatic gearbox – a torque converter – under a budget of Rs 10 lakh. The Ciaz is powered by a 1.5L four-cylinder petrol engine that produces 105hp and 138Nm of torque. The engine comes mated to a 4-speed torque converter gearbox but more essentially, it gets the smart-hybrid system from Maruti Suzuki. For this reason, the Ciaz returns a mileage of as high as 20kpl. Its also a very stylish looking sedan with premium feature packed interiors. With prices starting from just under Rs 10 lakh at Rs 9.98 lakh and going up to Rs 11.10 lakh, the Ciaz is an extremely good value for money product.
Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza Automatic
Our last car on this list is the Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza. Also its no surprise that if we have kept mileage as a priority, most of them will be Maruti Suzukis. Just like the Ciaz, the Vitara Brezza is also available with the same 1.5L four-cylinder petrol engine with 105hp and 138Nm of torque. The Brezza also gets a 4-speed torque converter automatic gearbox along with the smart-hybrid system. Fuel efficiency for the Brezza is rated at 18.76kpl, which is also the highest mileage in its segment of petrol automatic sub-compact SUVs.
