India’s 10 Most Fuel Efficient Cars

With rising fuel prices and ever increasing commute distances, we are spending more and more money on filling fuel into our cars. Further, cars produced a few years back were not as fuel efficient as the ones being sold today. This means that if you are tired of spending thousands of rupees each month on filling up your car, it is time to probably look at investing into some of the most fuel efficient cars in India. A switch from a petrol car to a diesel can help you save as much as INR 5,000 each month, depending on your usage. Not to forget that a new car feels good, comes with warranty and has much lower maintenance cost. Let’s have a look then at India’s top 5 most fuel efficient cars on sale. Interestingly, all these cars are diesel powered and 5  of the models we have here are from Maruti Suzuki!

Maruti Suzuki Ciaz

Price Range: Rs 7.88 lakh onwards
Fuel Type: 1.3 Diesel
Rated Economy: 28.09 kmpl

Maruti Suzuki Ciaz

Move over hatchbacks, this sedan proudly wears the crown of being the most fuel efficient car in India. This has been possible due to the use of SHVS (smart hybrid vehicle system) technology with the 1.3-litre diesel engine. This technology helps reduce the load on the engine, thereby helping it sip less fuel. The SHVS Ciaz leads the tally with a rated fuel economy of 28.09 kmpl. Further, it offers one of the most spacious cabins in the segment along with impressive features and Maruti’s peace of mind factor.

Honda Jazz

Price Range: Rs 7.2 lakh onwards
Fuel Type: 1.5 Diesel
Rated Economy: 27.3 kmpl

Honda Jazz

The Jazz is the most fuel efficient Honda car in India. Inspite of a very powerful 100 PS engine, the Jazz manages an excellent figure of 27.3 kmpl as per standard tests. The same engine is also seen in the City, Amaze, Mobilio, WR-V and BR-V. The Jazz also gets a 6-speed manual gearbox as opposed to 5-speed for other cars here and this helps to keep the engine spinning at low revs at higher speeds, thus saving precious fuel. Apart from being efficient, the Jazz is also one of the most spacious hatchbacks in India. Honda recently launched its rugged cross-over version, the WR-V (read this special report)

Fuel Type: 1.05 Diesel
Rated Economy: 27.28 kmpl

Tata Tiago

Its a surprise to find a Tata Motors vehicle in this list. The little Tiago has been a success for the brand and is the highest selling Tata model in India. More than its VFM tag, the Tiago also offers low running costs and comes with a rated economy of 27.28 kmpl from its new 3-cylinder 1.05-litre engine. The same engine will be seen in the Tigor as well but might offer fractionally lower economy due to its higher weight. Nevertheless, we are happy to see such figures.

Honda Amaze

The company’s Maruti Dzire-rival is in its second generation now. It’s substantially more premium than before and comes with a more premium cabin.

The figures quoted here are as per standard tests conducted by ARAI (automotive research association of India) and will vary a lot in real world driving conditions. However, as a thumb rule, you can expect the car to deliver 70-75% of these figures in urban environment which means these cars will end up delivering 18-19 kmpl very easily. Out on the highways, at speeds of about 90-100 km/h, expect this to go very close to the test figure.
