Fuel efficiency is a very important factor for most people to consider when purchasing a car, so here is the list of top 5 Best Mileage Petrol Cars in India

No matter how high or low the gas price is at a certain point in time, fuel efficiency has always been one of the top factors to consider when you plan to purchase a new car. Based on consumer’s popular demands, many car manufacturers are rolling out new vehicles that offer incredible fuel economy together with loaded features. And a great part of these comes with petrol engine underneath. It seems like now is the best time to buy a car. But before getting all worked up and starting looking up cars online, let’s take a look at the top 5 best mileage petrol cars in India.

Top 5 Best Mileage Petrol Cars in India 

1. Maruti Suzuki Dzire (22 kmpl)

Maruti Suzuki is famous for making cars that are fuel-efficient and overall suitable for an average person, so do not be surprised if you see quite a few Maruti Suzuki cars make this list. The first Maruti Suzuki vehicle that has one of the best mileage in India at the moment is Maruti Suzuki Dzire. Maruti Suzuki Dzire has actually appeared in many top lists of IndianAuto such as "Best cars for middle class," "Top mid-size sedan," or "Best-selling sedans of 2018". Probably one of the reasons why it is so well-loved by car owners is that it has a pretty good ARAI-certified mileage of 22 kmpl. Apart from the envy-worthy mileage number, the Dzire looks quite pretty and modern for a sub-4-metre sedan. What's more, the Dzire boasts a lot of features that make driving with your family fun and safe like excellent legroom, Apple CarPlay, dual airbags, rear parking sensors, and Anti-Lock Braking System. The car is powered by a 1.2-litre engine that churns out 84.3 PS at 6000 rpm and 115 Nm at 4000 rpm. On top of that, all variants of Dzire are under 9 lakhs, and in this day and age, it is not easy to come across a better deal.

Maruti Suzuki Dzire has fantastic mileage, and it is a very well-rounded yet affordable car.

2. Maruti Suzuki Celerio (23.1 kmpl)

Another Maruti Suzuki vehicle that turns up on IndianAuto’s Best Mileage Petrol Cars in India is Maruti Suzuki Celerio. Maruti Suzuki Celerio has the best-in-class mileage of 23.1 kmpl and is the kind of car that we would recommend to middle-class family or to someone who wants to buy their first four-wheelers because it is very budget-friendly. Despite the entry-level price, Celerio does not cut the corner when it comes to design and comfort. The look of the car is more or less simple but Maruti Suzuki puts a metal lining on top of the front grille as a touch of sportiness. The inside of the car is somewhat deceptively spacious, even though Celerio is a hatchback, but rest assured that you can have a comfortable ride in Maruti Suzuki Celerio as long as you are not 2-metre tall. Maruti Suzuki Celerio draws power from a 1-litre engine that produces 68 PS at 6000 rpm and 90 Nm at 3500 rpm. Most variants of Celerio are under 5 lakhs, which is quite a steal. What makes Maruti Suzuki Celerio even more appealing to potential customers is that it is one of the cars with the lowest maintenance cost in the market at the moment. So, if you are looking for an affordable option, look no further!

3. Tata Tiago (23.84 kmpl)

If Maruti Suzuki Celerio is the car that saves you some money when you buy it and then a lot of money when you use it, Tata Tiago is formidable to Celerio. Tata Tiago boasts an ovation-worthy ARAI-certified mileage of 23.84 kmpl while being one of the most affordable hatchbacks in India. We all know hatchback is a cut-throat segment in the market, so car manufacturers have no other choice but to roll out cars that are well-rounded yet are priced quite competitive. And to compete with the best-sellers from Maruti Suzuki, Tata puts a lot of good things in Tata Tiago. Tata Tiago has the great ground clearance that not many cars from the same segment or have the same price range have, allowing it to be the ideal vehicle for Indian roads. The cabin is organized so well that the hatchback can accommodate 4 adults and 1 child. Tata Tiago has a 1.2-litre engine that generates 85 PS at 6000 rpm and 114 Nm at 3500 rpm. The performance of Tata Tiago does not seem very thrilling for those who love speed, but for a starting price of 2.63 lakhs, it is quite difficult to beat the whole package that bears the name Tata Tiago.

4. Maruti Suzuki Alto 800 (24.7 kmpl)

Maruti Suzuki Alto 800 is another great entry-level option for a middle-class family or a young person who is considering owning a car for the first time. For a starting price 2.63 lakhs and an ARAI-certified mileage of 24.7 kmpl, Maruti Suzuki Alto 800 is an option worth considering for someone who does not want to break a bank to own and to drive a car. Even though Alto 800 is among the cheapest family hatchbacks from Maruti, it is not like a moving plastic box at the least bit. The look of Alto 800 is pretty pleasant with a fun flair of creases on the bonnet and front bumper. However, because the price is low, the car is quite compromised on the part of the engine as Maruti Suzuki Alto 800 is powered by a 796-cc engine that produces 48 PS at 6000 rpm and 69 Nm at 3500 rpm. That being said, if you drive on urban roads, where congestions happen regularly, the engine is not very bad. The Alto 800 secures the second position in our list of best mileage petrol cars in India.

5. Renault Kwid (28.4 kmpl)

And the winner of this list of best mileage petrol cars in India is Renault Kwid, a reasonably-priced car that has an incredible ARAI-certified mileage of 28.4 kmpl. Renault Kwid is a hatchback that has a strong stance like everybody’s favourite car type - SUV. The high ground clearance of Renault Kwid makes it ideal to drive on Indian roads because we all know the roads are full of potholes and questionable bumps. Interior wise, the cabin of Kwid provides spacious legroom and is equipped with a touchscreen infotainment screen and cooled glove box. All variants of Renault Kwid are under 5 lakhs, and you would save a lot of money at the car showroom and at the gas station if you decide to own a Renault Kwid.
