The recently launched Maruti Celerio diesel brought with a 2 cylinder, 793cc diesel motor, the smallest one powering a car in India and also the first of its kind developed by Suzuki. Apart from curbing production costs it is also very efficient when it comes to fuel consumption returning a very healthy 27.62 kmpl. This makes it the most fuel efficient diesel car on sale in India currently dethroning its elder sibling, the Maruti Ciaz. The engine produces just 47 bhp of power and 125 Nm torque which the company claims is sufficient for the urban environment and that the lack of power will not be that evident. Initial reports suggest that although that claim is not entirely unsubstantiated, but the lack of power is evident that moment you out your foot down even slightly. And then there are the NVH levels which are not very car like. But these factors are unlikely to deter buyers from making this one of the best selling vehicles on our roads.

2. 2015 Honda Jazz- 27.3 kmpl

Honda is leaving no stone unturned with its latest launch, the Jazz, for the car’s second stint in India. This time around the Jazz will be cheaper than before and come with a diesel engine option as well. This diesel motor, shared with the Amaze, Mobilio and City, returns an ARAI certified mileage of 27.3 kmpl. Which makes it the second most fuel efficient car India, second only to the Maruti Celerio diesel DDiS 125. The Jazz will be a direct rival to Hyundai’s Elite i20 and these mileage figures give it an upper hand in its battle with the i20 as the latter returns only 22.54 kmpl. However, the figures might be closer in real world conditions. The 1.5 litre iDTEC diesel motor powering the new model Honda Jazz is good for 100PS power and 200Nm torque.

3. Maruti Swift Dzire – 26.59 kmpl

The facelifted Swift Dzire now comes with improved fuel efficiency figures of 26.59 kmpl up from the pre-facelift version’s 23.4 kmpl. A few tweaks to the ECU enables Maruti to pull this off making the Dzire more fuel efficient than its major competitor, Honda Amaze. Other changes to the car are minimal and the car was already the highest selling compact sedan in India, something that it will continue to be thanks to the improved mileage.

4. Maruti Ciaz – 26.21 kmpl

Maruti’s mid-size sedan offering, the Ciaz is the most fuel efficient sedan on sale in India thanks to an ARAI certified mileage of 26.21 kmpl. Although these figures are better than the segment leader, Honda City but only just which means that the Ciaz hasn’t been able to match the City in terms of sales. Having said that, it still has been a successful model for Maruti Suzuki, a company which was not a popular choice among buyers in the slightly premium end of the spectrum.

5. Honda City – 26 kmpl

There are various reason for the popularity of the Honda City, one of the major ones being the very healthy mileage it returns. The Maruti Ciaz managed to better the City’s figures, but only by a very small margin ensuring that the car remains at the top of the pile. And then there is the brand image the Honda City enjoys which has made it the pick of the segment amongst the Indian car buyers. The City domination seems unlikely to end.
