Maruti Suzuki Alto
Rs. 2.46 – 3.72 lakhs (Ex-Showroom)
The second car on our list is India’s most popular and best-selling hatchback – the Maruti Suzuki Alto. What makes this hatchback the best-selling car is its affordability, low-maintenance and a superb fuel mileage of 24.7kmpl. This is the same car which has replaced the evergreen Maruti 800 in India. And with time, the Maruti Suzuki Alto has earned its name, respect, fame and popularity, which it deserved. It is powered by a small 796cc petrol engine that churns 47.3bhp of maximum power at 6000rpm and 68NM of peak torque at 3500rpm. If you don’t want to spend a lot on a car, the Alto is the best option for you.
Rs. 2.62 – 3.83 Lakh (Ex-Showroom)
Renault Kwid is one such car which has somewhat tried to affect the popularity and thunder of Maruti Suzuki Alto. We won’t say that it has been successful in the same, but it had surely affected the sales figures of Alto. The Renault Kwid has been a trending car ever since its launch. Thanks to its mini-SUV looks, specious cabin, best-in-class features, in-built navigation system, and the mileage figure of 24.04kmpl makes it one of the best affordable cars under Rs.6 lakh price bracket. According to Autoportal.com, the Kwid is powered by a 799cc petrol engine that churns 53.3bhp of maximum power at 5678rpm and 72NM of peak torque at 4386rpm.
Rs. 3.21 – 5.75 lakhs (Ex-Showroom)
Tata’s one of the hottest cars in the recent times is the Tiago, which comes on the fourth spot on our list. It is Tata’s first hatchback based on their impact design platform, which can also be seen on the Tata Tigor, Hexa and Nexon. Tata Tiago sports a trendy exterior design, well-finished interiors, decent cabin space and features that make it a total value for money buy. This small hatchback is available in both petrol and diesel engine variants. And both of them offer a power-packed performance with a decent fuel mileage. The petrol engine promises 23.84kmpl, while the diesel engine promises a mileage of 27.28kmpl.
Maruti Suzuki CelerioX
Rs. 4.57- 5.43 lakh (Ex-Showroom)
The newly launched Maruti Suzuki CelerioX is the last car on our list of top 5 most fuel efficient cars under Rs.6 lakhs in India. The all-new Maruti Suzuki CelerioX is not a new car but a major cosmetic upgrade on the existing Celerio hatchback without changing/upgrading its engine. But what has changed is the exterior looks, styling and overall appearance of the car, which makes it sporty and trendy with a crossover look. Starting from the X-theme based front grille, blacked-out B pillar to the side and rear body cladding, redesigned front & rear bumpers with heavy black plastic cladding, the CelerioX is a great car for people with less budget. Its 998cc 3-cylinder petrol engine promises a fuel mileage of 23kmpl, which is quite good.
