Indians have a penchant for frugal cars and to meet the rising demand for such vehicles, carmakers are bringing in new options that claim to deliver impressive mileage. It is a known fact that diesel driven vehicles have better fuel efficiency but with improvement in technology, petrol cars are able to deliver increased fuel economy. Also the narrow price difference between both fuels has brought back petrol cars into the limelight. Here is a list of diesel and petrol cars in India that claim to return imposing mileage.
1. Maruti Suzuki Ciaz SHVS
Called the Maruti Suzuki Ciaz SHVS (Smart Hybrid Vehicle by Suzuki) hybrid, the car comes with an integrated starter generator, a larger capacity battery, and start-stop technology that help the vehicle return better mileage. While the old Maruti Ciaz diesel had an ARAI certified mileage of 26.21Km/l, the Ciaz SHVS returns an outstanding 28.09Km/l. This effectively makes the Ciaz SHVS hybrid India’s most fuel-efficient car.
