Manufacturers are constantly striving for better fuel efficiency ratings trying to be at the top of the pile. With every new launch, Maruti Suzuki has been constantly pushing the envelope trying to top every other manufacturer and last year they upped the ante with the Celerio diesel DDiS 125 and the Ciaz SHVS.
Maruti Suzuki’s mid-size sedan offering, the Ciaz sits at the top of the Best Mileage Cars in India list. It is the most fuel-efficient sedan on sale in India thanks to the utilisation of mild hybrid tech giving it an ARAI certified mileage of 28.09 kmpl. It has been a successful model for Maruti Suzuki, a model which is a popular choice among buyers in the slightly premium end of the spectrum.
The Maruti Suzuki Celerio Diesel brought with it 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 one of the best mileage cars in India currently, second only to its elder sibling, the Maruti Suzuki Ciaz. The engine produces 47 bhp of power and 125 Nm torque, which the is sufficient for the urban environment .
