2. Tata Indica
The next in our list of the cheapest diesel cars in India is the Tata Indica. The Indica has been doing well for the home-grown carmaker in the commercial vehicle segment. Under the hood, the car houses a 1396cc diesel engine that complies BSIII and BS4 emission norms. This power mill is capable of pushing out a maximum power of 69.04bhp at 4000rpm and a peak torque of 140 Nm between 1800 – 3000rpm.
The Tata Indica has been proving itself to be an excellent drive though it can get a little rugged over time. But in terms of its efficiency even in the longer run, the car is second to none. The mileage of Tata Indica is said to be around 25kmpl. The prices of this vehicle (diesel) start from Rs. 5.13 lakh, and go all the way up to Rs 5.61 lakh (ex- showroom New Delhi).
