Top Petrol & Diesel Sub-Compact SUVs < 10 L with Best Mileage in India – 2021
We have a ton of sub-compact SUVs in the market and as the BS6 norms have taken the charge, the petrol propulsion is in more demand. The diesel offerings are losing their popularity due to high price, stricter emissions and marginal fuel cost gap when compared to petrol prices. Today we bring to you both petrol and diesel sub-compact SUVs with the best mileage you can buy in 2021.
Nissan India launched the Magnite recently and it has garnered over 34000 bookings. With the waiting period climbing over 6 months, the Magnite has surely sparkled its Carisma on Indian car buyers. With the diesel out of the picture, Nissan India is sailing on with the petrol propulsion and hence, the Magnite comes with two 1.0-litre petrol engines. The one which you should buy is the 1.0-litre turbo petrol which comes mated to a 5-speed manual and a CVT. The claimed fuel efficiency of the Magnite MT is 20 km/l whereas the CVT returns 17.7 km/l. The Magnite is the most fuel-efficient SUV in its segment and its CVT is also more fuel-efficient than its arch-rivals. The price of the Nissan Magnite starts from Rs 5.49 lakh and goes to Rs 9.59 lakh ex-showroom.
Renault Kiger is the fourth offering from the French marque in the Indian market and its launch is slated for 15th February. While the pricing is expected to be competitive, it will also offer frugal petrol engines. Both the engines have been shared with the Magnite, however, the Kiger also offers an option of the AMT with the naturally-aspirated petrol engine. While the fuel efficiency figures of the NA MT and AMT are not revealed yet, the turbo petrol MT of the Kiger will return 20 km/l which is also the segment-best. The turbo petrol CVT of the Kiger will also return similar mileage to the Magnite (17.7 km/l).
Kia Sonet is one of the best sellers in its segment thanks to its long list of features and powertrain options. The Kia Sonet is the most fuel-efficient diesel SUV in its class with the claimed economy of 24.1 km/l. The turbo petrol engine of the Sonet also returns a great 18.2 km/l mileage whereas the petrol DCT returns 18.3 km/l. Interestingly, Sonet’s petrol DCT offers more mileage than the clutchless manual transmission i.e petrol iMT. The 1.2-litre naturally-aspirated petrol engine of the Sonet also returns 18.3 km/l. The prices of the Kia Sonet start from Rs 6.79 lakh and goes to Rs 13.29 lakh ex-showroom.
Hyundai Venue is the most selling SUV of its segment – even overtaking the Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza in monthly sales. The Hyundai Venue shares its powertrains with the Kia Sonet but interestingly, it’s the Sonet which offers better mileage with the same engines. The 1.5-litre diesel Venue returns 23.3 km/l whereas the 1.0-litre turbo petrol returns 18.1 km/l and 18 km/l with iMT and DCT respectively. The prices of the Hyundai Venue starts from Rs 6.86 lakh and goes to Rs 11.66 lakh ex-showroom.
The Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza was only available with a diesel engine pre-BS6 era. But as the BS6 norms are here, Maruti has replaced the old 1.3L diesel with a 1.5L petrol engine. The Vitara Brezza returns a commendable 17.03 km/l with the manual transmission and 18.76 km/l with the 4-speed AT. The smart hybrid system offered with the Vitara Brezza AT helps it to score better mileage as compared to the manual without the smart hybrid system. The price of the Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza starts from Rs 7.39 lakh and goes to Rs 11.40 lakh ex-showroom.
So here are the top sub-compact SUVs with the best mileage on offer in India for the year 2021. It is worth noting that the prices mentioned above are ex-showroom New Delhi and are bound to change in future.
