Here is a list of the Top 10 fuel efficient cars in India, based on their ARAI-rated economy claims. Note that only petrol and diesel passenger cars were included for this story.
1. 2014 Honda City Diesel – 26 kmpl
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.
