Most entry-level cars are sought after for their fuel efficiency. With the soaring fuel prices, even premium car buyers are looking to choose the one that delivers the best mileage. The need to cover more miles per liter has reached its pinnacle in 2020 with fuel prices inching closer towards the Rs 90/liter mark.
So, what are your options in 2020 when it comes to the best cars to help you keep fuel bills in check? Here’s a list of top five mileage cars. The list consists only petrol, mild-hybrid and diesel cars. Get ready to be surprised, as the BS6 upgrade has forced many automakers to discontinue diesel engines from their lineup.
Mileage – 42 kmpl
Topping the mileage charts is the petrol automatic variant of the Volvo XC90. The premium SUV gets mild-hybrid tech, which helped it attain such an impressive figure. The prices of the new XC90 fall in the range of Rs 80.90 lakh to Rs 1.42 crore (ex-showroom, Delhi).
If the price seems a tad too steep, choose a used XC90. While it would still cost quite an amount in the pre-owned car market too, you can always take a used car loan and bring home this much-desired car.
BMW 7 Series
Mileage – 39.53 kmpl
The grand BMW 7 Series is a perfect blend of luxury and performance. If that wasn’t enough, the incredible fuel efficiency of 39.53 kmpl is something to swear by. The BMW 745Le variant gets an eDrive motor along with its 3.0-liter petrol engine that helps to deliver the excellent mileage. This particular variant costs Rs 1.66 crore (ex-showroom, Delhi).
Hyundai Grand i10 Nios
Mileage – 26.2 kmpl
