Thanks to its lower kerb weight. The car is marketed in India as a premium hatchback and is sold through the new Nexa sales channel only. It is very well received by the Indian car buying lot.

4. Honda Jazz Diesel– 27.3 kmpl

Honda has left no stone unturned for the Jazz’s second innings in India. This time, the Jazz is cheaper than earlier and comes with a diesel engine option as well. This diesel engine is shared with the Amaze, Mobilio and the City, which returns an ARAI certified mileage of 27.3 kmpl. This makes the Jazz the third most fuel efficient car India, behind the Maruti Ciaz and Maruti Celerio diesel DDiS 125. The Jazz is a direct rival to the Hyundai’s Elite i20. Even though it boasts a higher mileage figure, it hasn’t been able to match with the i20’s popularity. The 1.5 litre iDTEC diesel motor powering the new model Honda Jazz is pumps out 100PS power and 200Nm torque, but it is let down by its high NVH levels.

Tata has high hopes from the Tiago as it belives this new hatchback can help it get back some of the market share they have lost over the years. And the Tiago  being one of the Best mileage cars in India should definitely help.

9. Honda Amaze Diesel– 25.8 kmpl

The Honda Amaze was the fuel efficiency king in the diesel compact sedans before the facelifted Maruti Swift Dzire. It still returns a very impressive mileage of 25.8 kmpl which ensures the Amaze is easy on the pocket and cheap to run. It definitely suffers from some refinement issues as customers complain that the diesel motor is a bit rough. Also due to poor sound insulation the noise filters through to the cabin. This is something which is a bit uncharacteristic of a Honda. Despite all this,  the Amaze remains a very capable car and continues to sell in decent numbers.
