Maruti Suzuki Swift – 28.4 kmpl

Maruti Suzuki Swift

The diesel variant of the new Maruti Swift is at the top of our list of best mileage diesel cars in India. With an ARAI-tested mileage of 28.4 kmpl, the Swift diesel turns out to be really very affordable to run. While the 1.3-litre turbo diesel engine that powers the new Swift has been carried over from the earlier generation, the higher mileage is due to the lightweight HEARTECT platform and the fine-tuning of the engine and the gear ratios. The 1.3-liter engine of the new-gen Swift outputs a maximum power of 75 PS and a peak torque of 190 Nm. It comes mated to a 5-speed manual transmission. You can also opt for the excellent 5-speed AMT. Even the AMT variant offers a similar fuel efficiency.

Maruti Suzuki Dzire – 28.4 kmpl

Maruti Suzuki Dzire

The latest-gen Dzire’s diesel variant offers a mileage that’s exactly the same as that of the Swift diesel. This is because both the cars get the same Fiat-sourced 1.3-litre turbocharged engine with a maximum power of 75 PS along with a peak torque of 190 Nm. Also, both the Dzire and the Swift weigh exactly 985 KGs. Yes, Maruti has managed to keep the Dzire as light as the Swift. This has been done thru several clever ideas such as the provision of a tough plastic fuel tank instead of a metal one on the Dzire. Also, the Dzire too is underpinned by the lightweight HEARTECT platform. Even it offers two transmission choices – 5-speed manual and a 5-speed AMT.

Maruti Suzuki Ciaz – 28.09 kmpl

Maruti Suzuki Ciaz

Even the next car on our list of best mileage diesel cars in India is a Maruti Suzuki. The Ciaz is a bigger sedan than the Dzire. It also gets a more powerful version of the Fiat-sourced turbocharged diesel engine. Yet, at 28.09 kmpl, as per ARAI, it’s only slightly less fuel efficient. Much of this has to do with the fact that the Ciaz comes with the SHVS micro-hybrid system. This helps in boosting the fuel efficiency. Also, the Variable Geometry Turbo, instead of the Fixed Geometry Turbo on the engine for the Dzire and the Swift, helps the Ciaz deliver a higher performance without compromising on the fuel efficiency. For the Ciaz, this engine outputs a maximum power of 90 PS along with a peak torque of 200 Nm. The engine comes mated to a 5-speed manual transmission.
