The new City takes the top spot with a figure of 26 km/l.

When the new Honda City diesel went on sale earlier this year, it took the crown of India’s most fuel efficient car from its smaller sibling, the Honda Amaze.¬†Though both cars use the same 1.5-liter i-DTEC engine, the City gets a 6-speed gearbox, and pips the Amaze by 0.2 km/l. The ARAI rated efficiency of the City diesel stands at 26 km/l.

2. Honda Amaze Diesel – 25.8 kmpl

The Honda Amaze diesel is the second most fuel efficient car in India with an ARAI rated claim of 25.8 km/l. The Amaze was the first diesel car for Honda in India, and introduced the 1.5-liter i-DTEC engine. Where the City uses the same engine with a 6-speed gearbox, the Amaze uses a 5-speed transmission.

    Suzuki cars are no longer what they used to be. Even their designs arn’t that fresh and sporty eg. Celerio , alto 800, A star, they should introduce some new models soon like sx4 cross, next gen sx4,

    This is Incorrect List. You have 2 car pairs sharing the same engine. Honda and Hyundai. And Nano and Nano twist… don’t agree…

    1. This list is only about the fuel efficiency figure, not about the brand or engine.

    Try doing the same thing with below 5 lakh, and lets see how many marutis that list features.

    These all are ARAI figures. What average we get in real condition is more important.

    Shame for suzuki as they were doing their add using famous tagline “kitna deti hai?”.

  7. Subash says:

    Has Suzuki lost the plot? Let us not call it Maruti anymore, just Suzuki.
