Mileage – one of the most considered factors while buying a new car in India! Well, Indians are so much concerned about the mileage that they even give up on safety. Maybe this is why we see Maruti Suzuki every time on the list of top-selling cars. In today’s featured, we will talk about the top 10 best mileage fuel-efficient diesel cars of 2020. For a change, we don’t have a Maruti Suzuki in this list! MSIL discontinued their diesel lineup as soon as BS6 came into being. Let’s now have a look at which diesel cars from the last year can get you the max kilometres from a litre of diesel.
Hyundai Aura (25.40kmpl)
Starting our list of best mileage diesel cars, we have the Hyundai Aura in the top. Delivering 25.40kmpl, this is the best compact sedan you can get with a diesel engine which will burn a hole in your pocket neither in terms of fuel nor in terms of maintenance. Moreover, Aura’s diesel AMT gives you the best in class comfort too. This one is a good pick for sure!
Hyundai i20 (25.20kmpl)
100hp! Yes, you read that right! This hatch, with its 1.5-litre diesel engine, is a tough competition for its own sibling- the Venue! However, this one being a hatch is fun-to-drive and easy to handle with the town and on highways too!
Tata Altroz Revotorq (25.11kmpl)
Mileage with safety! Tata Altroz is the safest premium hatchback in India. This one is available with a 5-speed manual gearbox and churns out 90hp with Tata’s Revotorq engine technology. Before the i20 was launched in India, Altroz was the most fuel-efficient diesel hatchback. It lost its crown by a mere difference of 0.9kmpl!
Hyundai Grand i10 NIOS (25.10kmpl)
This hatch comes with Hyundai’s 1.2-litre U2 CRDi engine which is currently the smallest diesel engine on sale in India. The mileage figure you see above is for the petrol version of the NIOS. The diesel version, however, has not been certified by ARAI but we can expect the mileage to be somewhere around the same figure only. NIOS is therefore in our list of best mileage diesel cars of 2020 and is available in both manual and AMT.
Hyundai Verna (25.00kmpl)
The sporty sedan from Hyundai! The Hyundai Verna is the fifth one on our list of the best mileage diesel cars in India. Sharing its diesel engine with Creta, Verna churns out 115hp from the 1.5-litre CRDi engine and gives out a mileage of around 25kmpl!
Honda Amaze (24.70kmpl)
Although Honda is known for its CVT, mileage is another perk the Amaze delivers! Finally a brand other than Hyundai in our list of best mileage diesel cars. Honda Amaze stands at the 6th position with a claimed mileage of 25kmpl. Mind you, this is for the manual version. The CVT version of this car has an ARAI claimed mileage of 21kpl.
Ford Figo & Aspire (24.4kmpl)
The American duo is also on our list of best mileage diesel cars. The 1.5-litre diesel engine on both these cars power them well and simultaneously get you enough kilometres from a litre of diesel. 24.4, yes that’s the figure that this duo which competes against the NIOS and Aura respectively delivers.
Honda City (24.1kmpl)
It’s a tie here. Honda City is not the only one with this figure. Well, talking about this sedan which is successful in every avatar it has ever existed, Honda brought in the diesel version a few years back and it was absolutely able to carry forward the legacy. Currently, the 5th gen City gets 24.1kmpl for the diesel variant.
Kia Sonet (24.1kmpl)
We told you its a tie! The second one sharing the same mileage figure is the Kia Sonet. Hyundai Venue’s competitor that took the Indian market by storm! Well, comparing it with the City won’t be fair at all so let’s not do that anyway. We are talking about best mileage diesel cars here and it’s just a coincidence that these two have shared the figures. Sonet is the most file efficient diesel compact SUV currently on sale in India.
Honda WRV (23.7kmpl)
Last but not least, ending our list of top 10 best mileage diesel cars in India with Honda’s subcompact SUV! The 1.5-litre, four-cylinder i-DTEC engine makes 100hp and 200Nm of torque which makes it a worthy rival for the EcoSport, the Venue and the Tata Nexon!
These were the top 10 best mileage diesel cars. These cars form the most efficient diesel cars currently on sale in India and if you are looking for something that saves you on fuel costs, one of these can be your pick for sure!
