India’s obsession with mileage couldn’t be portrayed better than Maruti Suzuki’s famous Yatch ad campaign ‘Kitna deti hai’ that became a rage back then. While the obsession seems to be unending, the advancement in technology has enabled carmakers to come up with more frugal models lately. The sudden influx of models with claimed mileage of 25kmpl or above is a testimony to the above statement. Fortunately, this number is nearing the 30-digit mark with newer vehicles (a little over 28kmpl). Currently, there are over 15 models that are rated over 25kmpl. If you are looking for a suitable car with high-fuel economy, you must go through our list of the best mileage cars in India.
The new-generation Dzire with refreshed looks and a more upmarket cabin launched recently in India. Packed with a raft of new tech, the third-generation Dzire gets a completely new front profile with a new hexagonal grille and new bumper among the key changes. While it remains largely same from side, changes have been made to the rear end. On the inside, it comes with new tech, better quality material and Maruti’s SmartPlay infotainment system with smartphone integration. Under the hood, it continues using same 1.2-litre petrol and 1.3-litre oil burner from the previous model with a standard 5-speed manual and 5-speed AMT that is offered in all but base LXi and LDi trims. While it retains same engines, the fuel economy has been increased substantially for the diesel version at 28.40kmpl. At this mileage, new Dzire tops the list of best mileage cars in India.
