Most Fuel Efficient Petrol Cars in India


When it comes to fuel efficiency, Maruti Suzuki is king. Built on the old 90s ethos of fill-it-shut-it-forget it, Maruti has earned a name for building some of the most fuel-efficient cars in the country. Its something that they have preserved over the years even in 2019, which makes it no surprise that the first three most fuel efficient petrol cars. It is interesting to see the fourth and fifth position is filled out by a Tata Tiago Hatch and the Toyota Prius that gets onto the list thanks to its lithium-ion assisted electric motor.  


Most Fuel Efficient Diesel Cars in India

Once again it is an outright dominance of Maruti Suzuki’s from 1st to 5th,  in terms of diesel, even without their super efficient 3-cyl 800cc diesel motor from the Celerio Diesel. Its interesting to see the Ciaz in second spot especially considering that it is a full-size sedan, but thanks to Maruti’s SHVS hybrid technology it returns the 28 kmpl that it does. The Swift is the perhaps the most efficient state of tune of 1.3 litre DDiS motor that we have seen to date!
