Top 5 most fuel efficient affordable petrol automatic cars in India

  • Oct 06, 2015
Traffic in our cities is increasing on a daily basis causing various sorts of inconveniences for travelers. As a result of this, the country has seen an immense rise in popularity of automatic vehicles for the added convenience that they offer. However, automatic vehicles generally offer lesser fuel economy when compared to their manual counterparts (though the same cannot be said about AMT vehicles). With fuel efficiency being a hot topic among Indian car buyers, here’s a look at India’s top 5 most fuel efficient petrol automatics:

1) Maruti Suzuki Alto K10

The most fuel efficient petrol automatic in the country, Alto K10’s popularity in India has further increased thanks to the AMT unit that returns an impressive 24.07 km/l, which is the same as the manual variant. The entry-level hatchback is powered by a 1.0-litre, three-cylinder petrol engine the produces 68PS and 90 Nm of torque. The Alto K10 is expected to do well in the coming future as well, with the AMT variant contributing to impressive sales figures for the vehicle.


2) Maruti Suzuki Celerio

The first car in India to feature the now famous AMT unit, Celerio has been a very successful product in the country from Indian car maker Maruti Suzuki. It is driven by the same 1.0-litre K10 engine that also powers the Alto K10. Outputting 68PS of power and 90 Nm of torque, the Celerio AMT returns an ARAI certified mileage of 23.1 km/l, similar to the manual variants.


3) Tata Nano GenX

Do you think the Nano still looks cool?

The new GenX Nano is a vast improvement over the previous model in various aspects. One such domain is the addition of an AMT unit which comes mated to the 624cc, twin-cylinder petrol motor that outputs 38PS and 51 Nm of torque. The engine returns an ARAI certified fuel economy of 21.9 km/l. The AMT in the Nano comes with a creep function that gets the vehicle moving as soon as the brake pedal is released, which is a boon for bumper-to-bumper traffic.


4) Nissan Micra X-Shift

Nissan Micra X-Shift limited edition

The latest variant of the Micra hatchback was launched in July 2015, thereby making the automatic variant of the vehicle more affordable. Limited to just 750 units, the X-Shift is powered by a 1.2-litre, three-cylinder petrol engine that churns out 75PS of power and 104 Nm of torque. The engine comes mated to a CVT gearbox that returns an impressive 19.34 km/l (ARAI certified). The front-wheel drive automatic is a very good option to consider in the hatchback space.


5) Honda Jazz

Newest vehicle in the list, the Honda Jazz got off to a flying start in the country. Though its sales have now been dropping, the Jazz comes with the option of a petrol automatic (CVT) unlike any of its rivals. Under its hood is a 1.2-litre, four-cylinder petrol motor that gives out 90PS of power and 109 Nm of torque, which is capable of returning an impressive fuel economy of 19 km/l. The premium hatchback is famous for the oodles of interior room that it offers.
