Top 10 fuel-efficient diesel cars in India

As awareness regarding emissions goes up in our country, so do the fuel efficiency numbers of our cars. Here is a list of the most efficient cars.

Of late, the commotion over emissions and pollution levels has reached an all-time high in India. Considering the government and public interest in curbing the amount of vehicular pollution, we have yet again compiled a list of the most fuel-efficient diesel cars available in the Indian market.

 

 

One caveat though: This list has been compiled on the basis of manufacturer-claimed fuel efficiency figures, obtained in ARAI testing conditions. These fuel efficiency numbers are what the car would deliver in ideal conditions. The real results in everyday driving on Indian roads are likely to be lower.

 

1. Maruti Ciaz SHVS diesel hybrid – 28.09 kpl

The Maruti Ciaz (SHVS) is a mild hybrid version of the diesel Ciaz, and it employs much subtle technology to improve on the non-SHVS Ciaz’s fuel efficiency, which is still an appreciable 26.2kpl.

2. Maruti Celerio diesel – 27.6kpl

Though the Maruti Celerio (Diesel) is not number one in terms of fuel efficiency any more, it still boasts a brilliant fuel efficiency number. The tiny 800cc engine, combined with the extremely low kerb weight of around 900kg ensures that the Celerio is as frugal in terms of fuel consumption as they come.
