With the decreasing popularity of diesel-powered cars, more and more Indian auto manufacturers have introduced petrol-powered models with high mileage figures and at a reasonable price. Here's a list of Best Mileage Petrol Cars Under 5 Lakh in India
Fuel economy is one of the most important aspects that Indian auto buyers need to take into consideration when buying a new automobile. Previously, Indian car buyers seem to prefer diesel cars for their tendency to have a higher mileage figure than petrol counterparts; otherwise, they would choose a CNG car.
Nevertheless, today, many carmakers have introduced affordable petrol cars with high fuel efficiency, which is a contributory factor to their increasing popularity with the Indian auto buyers. Below is a list of most fuel-efficient under-Rs-5-lakh petrol cars in India.
