With the increasing popularity of diesel cars in India, most automobile companies are now offering diesel variants which are as comfortable and smooth as their petrol counterparts. For those who love the fun of a diesel engine, here is our list of the best 5 diesel cars under 6 lakhs.
Maruti Swift LDi
With an ex-showroom price of Rs.5.99 lakh, the biggest reason to buy this stylish car is the Fiat sourced MJD Diesel engine providing both power and mileage. It is Maruti’s entry level diesel variant whereas its facelifted version has been recently launched at a higher price. With a stylish appearance, efficient braking and suspension system, trendy headlight cluster, spacious cabin, plush interior, great safety features and good ground clearance, Maruti Swift LDi is a real steal.
Hyundai Grand i10 CRDi Era
Proving to be the best in this price point with a mileage of 24 Kmph and price of Rs 5.64 lakh, the Grand i10 received a facelift early last year with the company’s more powerful new 1.2-litre diesel engine. It has the advantage of a robust feature list with aggressive exterior, classy interiors, excellent driving dynamics and value for money tag. Competing with the likes of Maruti Suzuki Swift, Tata Bolt, Ford Figo; this one is a real game changer.
Tata Tiago XZ
The Tata Tiago Diesel comes with great styling and is an elegant, VFM hatchback. Built with high quality and intelligently-designed interiors, it is city friendly with light controls, congenial ergonomics and good driveability. The Tiago gets the 1.2-litre and 1.05-litre three cylinder Revotron engine, competing with the Maruti Celerio and the Chevrolet Beat in the compact hatchback segment. Priced at a competitive Rs 5.65 lakh, the Tiago is a favourite with many.
The Ford Figo Diesel is known as the first hatchback car launched by Ford India, and with a price tag of Rs 5.6 lakh, the Ford Figo is truly a force to reckon with. Equipped with a 1.5-litre TDCi diesel engine, it delivers great mileage in the city and on highways. Less weight and more power ensures that Figo reaches 100 kmph from 0 in around 10 seconds, which makes it one of the fastest cars in its segment.
Mahindra KUV 100 K4
Promoted as the Young SUV by Mahindra, the stylish KUV100 diesel comes with 5-seater and 6-seater options, the latest infotainment and connectivity with Mahindra Bluesense App and is extremely comfortable. Priced at Rs 5.35 lakh, and with a combination of good looks, quality interiors and respectable ride and handling, the KUV100 certainly makes for a good value proposition.
