However, even with all the driving pleasure, the Tiago manages to make it to this list of hatchbacks with the best mileage. it returns a healthy 23-24KMs to the litre.
Maruti Suzuki WagonR – 20.52 km/l to 32.52 km/kg
The WagonR is India’s favourite family hatchback. It offers excellent space and practicality and Maruti’s reliability and customer-focused service makes the ownership experience butter smooth. On top of all of this, the WagonR also returns an excellent mileage of 20+ KM/L even with the 1.2L Petrol engine. The WagonR takes a step ahead in terms of efficiency by offering a factory-fitted CNG Kit.
Maruti Suzuki Swift – 23.20 kmpl
Undoubtedly India’s most popular hatchback, the Swift has been in the market for more than a decade now. While Maruti has ditched the diesel engine on the Swift, the petrol engine still packs in an amazing mileage of 23KMs/Liter! Just like the WagonR, the Swift also comes with Maruti’s reliability and after-sales service support.
Hyundai Grand i10 NIOS – 20 kmpl to 28 kmpl
Hyundai’s feature-loaded Grand i10 is also right up there with its competition when it comes to fuel efficiency.

Both the petrol engines offer an efficiency of 20+ KMs to the litre, while the diesel offers 23-24 KMs/L.
