Let us have a look at the top 5 diesel fuel efficient cars in India.
Maruti Ciaz SHVS
The Maruti Ciaz is a large sedan and it is selling in really nice numbers. The vehicle is offered with both petrol and diesel engines and the diesel trim comes with mild hybrid SHVS tech which is known to produce 28.08 km/l according to ARAI, thus making the Ciaz SHVS the most fuel efficient car in India.
Maruti Celerio Diesel
The second car in this list is amusingly much smaller than the Ciaz and it is the Maruti Celerio diesel DDiS 125. The Celerio is a peppy little hatchback but its petrol variants are fetching more sales than the diesel trims. ARAI claims that the Celerio diesel produces as much as 27.62 km/l.
Maruti Baleno Diesel
The third car here is again a Maruti, this time from the Nexa portfolio. The Baleno was launched in 2015 and it is currently leading the premium hatchback segment in India with sales of around 9000-odd units a month. The Maruti Baleno diesel has a claimed fuel efficiency of 27.39 km/l.
Honda Jazz Diesel
The Honda Jazz is currently in its second generation for the Indian market and this time it gets a 1.5-litre i-DTEC diesel engine. The hatchback isn’t really setting the sales charts on fire but it is definitely saving a lot of money for its owners with a claimed fuel efficiency of 27.3 km/l.
Tata Tiago Diesel
The Tata Tiago was launched almost a year back and it is performing well in the small hatchbacks segment. It uses a new 1.05-litre diesel engine and the ARAI-claimed fuel efficiency is 27.28 km/l.
