Let us have a look at the top 5 diesel fuel efficient cars in India.

Maruti Ciaz SHVS Long Term Review
Despite being a large C-segment car, the Ciaz SHVS still produces 28.08 km/l

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 Long Term Report
With a fuel efficiency of 27.62 km/l, running costs are very less on the Celerio DDiS

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.

2015 Maruti Baleno Sales
The leader of the premium hatchbacks segment has a fuel efficiency of 27.39 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 Anniversary Drive
While the ARAI-claimed figure is 27.3 km/l, real life figures hover between 20-25 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 Long Term
The value-for-money little hatchback from Tata produces 27.28 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.
