  • Published On: 28 March 2018

If you’re in the market for a fuel-efficient petrol car, here are your best options.

Petrol cars offer comparatively better levels of refinement and NVH. The Indian car industry is also seeing a gradual shift towards petrol-engined cars. But, to an Indian car owner, one of the most important considerations is fuel efficiency. Here’s a list of the top 10 most fuel-efficient car.

The figures quoted here are ARAI certified, so they don’t always reflect real-world efficiency figures as those tests are conducted in the lab under ideal conditions.

1. Datsun Redigo - 25.17kpl

The car is powered by a 54hp, 0.8-litre engine which also powers the Renault Kwid. Prices start at Rs 2.81 lakh (on-road, Delhi), and considering you get a frugal engine and youthful styling, the Redigo is a decent buy. There’s an AMT version, which costs Rs 3.81 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi) and it is as fuel efficient as its manual counterpart.

2. Renault Kwid - 25.17kpl

The Renault shares its engine with the Redigo, and the same ARAI-rated fuel-efficiency figure. The car features slightly more premium and spacious interiors, along with a touchscreen infotainment system on the top-spec trim. Prices start at Rs 2.67 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). There’s a 1.0-litre version and an AMT variant also on sale, or you could even get the Climber version.

3. Maruti Alto 800 - 24.7kpl

The Alto 800 costs Rs 2.51 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi) and is powered by a 48hp, 796cc motor. Thanks to its light weight and frugal engine, this car offers the third-best fuel efficiency figure on this list.

4. Maruti Alto K10 - 24.07kpl

This version is powered by a 68hp, 1.0-litre engine and is a great choice for a city car. Prices starts at Rs 3.30 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi) and there’s an automatic variant, which offers similar fuel efficiency as the manual.

5. Tata Tiago - 23.84kpl

Prices for the Tiago start from Rs 3.26 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). It’s a good-looking hatchback that offers a stylish, yet practical interior, and there’s a fair amount of kit as well. There’s an AMT version also on offer.

6. Tata Nano GenX - 23.6kpl

This version is a significant improvement on the original Nano and is, currently, the most affordable car in India. Prices start at Rs 2.28 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi) and the car is powered by an efficient 38hp, 624cc engine

7. Maruti Celerio - 23.1kpl

Prices start at Rs 4.20 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi) and the car is powered by a 68hp, 1.0-litre three-cylinder motor that also features in the Alto K10. The car also gets an AMT transmission.

8. Maruti Dzire - 22kpl

The car is powered by a frugal 83hp, 1.2-litre petrol engine. The car offers peppy performance, good fuel efficiency, a good amount of cabin room and decent levels of equipment. Prices start at Rs 5.56 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi).

9. Maruti Baleno - 21.4kpl

At Rs 5.36 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi), the car is quite well equipped. It comes with an 84hp, 1.2-litre engine that helps transport its lightweight platform and body. There’s a decently long list of equipment too.

10. Hyundai Eon (0.8-litre) - 21.1kpl

The car is powered by a 56hp, 814cc motor and is still one of the most fuel-efficient cars in the market. The engine is a bit lacklustre though. Prices start at Rs 3.30 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi).
