The strong hybrid model with the automatic CVT gearbox gives a class-leading mileage of 27.97 kmpl making it the best mileage petrol car in India. The engine is outstandingly refined, quiet and smooth due to the electric unit assisting the petrol engine.

Toyota Urban Cruiser Hyryder

Toyotalaunched the Hyryder on September 9th 2022 and is based on the Maruti Suzuki Grand Vitara. It gets a self-charging hybrid electric unit with a 1.5 litre (Toyota Hybrid System) and e-drive gearbox. The combined power output of the petrol and electric motor is 114 bhp and the SUV is capable of running on electric power alone. Of course, this leads to a segment-best mileage of 27.97 kmpl with low emissions, a quiet engine and no need to recharge due to its self-charging feature.

There is also a Suzuki-derived engine on offer, a 1.5-litre K-series unit with 101 bhp and 135 Nm of torque mated to either a 5-speed manual or 6-speed automatic transmission. The Suzuki drivetrain gets an all-wheel drive system making it a true 4×4 car in India.

Fuel efficiency is also the Sonet’s forte with a figure of 24.1 kmpl offered across 3 engine variants, a 1.2 litre naturally aspirated petrol, 1.0-litre three-cylinder turbo petrol and a 1.5-litre diesel motor.

Transmission variants depend on the engine options and include a 5-speed manual, 6-speed iMT, 7-speed DCT automatic or a 6-speed manual. The Sonet gets refreshed styling with the new generation launched on April 8th,2022. The exterior is both sporty and rugged with a youthful look. The cabin is feature packed and made of premium materials which are of good quality and on par with segment rivals.

Hyundai Venue

The engine options are the same as the Kia Sonet with the 1.2 litre N.A. petrol unit, 1.0-litre turbocharged petrol and 1.5-litre diesel mill. Transmission options are more or less similar with a 5-speed manual, 7-speed DCT automatic, 6-speed clutchless manual and a 6-speed manual for the diesel engine.

In the compact SUV segment, the Hyundai Venue has extremely good sales figures because of its appealing looks, first-in-segment features and a wide variety of engine and transmission options that cater to every car buyer’s requirement. Fuel efficiency is exemplary at 23.4 kmpl which keeps running costs low and there is an eco-drive mode for the DCT version that focuses on fuel economy, making the Venue a perfect daily driver.

Tata Nexon

There is also a 1.2-litre turbocharged petrol engine on offer with 118 bhp and 170 Nm of torque. There are 2 transmission options, a 6-speed manual and an AMT gearbox.

The Nexon has upmarket looks, powerful drivetrains (that manage to be frugal as well), a roomy cabin and excellent ride quality.

It also has the latest tech to keep up with the rest in the segment, while providing great comfort and convenience.


The best mileage 4×4 SUVs make commuting an affordable affair providing more kilometres to a litre of fuel. Fuel economy has always been a factor in deciding on a new car in India, but these past few years have seen it become a vital aspect given the exorbitant fuel prices.

Advanced technology such as hybrid powertrains combined with new-age materials for the construction of lightweight chassis has resulted in phenomenal mileage figures that have gone down well with car owners. Having a fuel-efficient SUV can save you thousands of rupees in fuel costs in the long run and can compensate for the higher purchase price of the vehicle.
