Diesel cars have gained a lot of popularity in India of late, courtesy the rising petrol prices. In addition, the technological advantages in case of the diesel mills have made them more environment-friendly and less noisy. Hence, it is not the big wheelers like truck or bus that features a diesel engine in modern times – a compact car with diesel engine is also an attractive option. Another added advantage of diesel engines is that they are high on fuel efficiency.
Here are some of the most popular diesel cars in India. These vehicles have won the confidence and trust of the buyers. Let us examine the list and, the reasons that make them popular.
Honda Amaze – Honda was slightly struggling with its regular petrol engines, before the Amaze came into picture. This sub-compact sedan was the first of its kind from Honda in India – it was the first time that a Honda car was offered in diesel variant. However, the customers loved the idea and soon, the makers had to increase their production capacity to meet surging demands. Competitive pricing, space, powerful performance and a class-best mileage are the factors that endeared this beauty from Honda to the customers.
Hyundai Xcent – This is the first ever car from Hyundai in the subcompact sedan segment. It was introduced very recently and even so, it has managed to sell in good numbers. The car is stylish to look at and offers good space on the inside. However, it is the fact that the Hyundai Xcent gives a mileage of 24 kmpl that has really worked in favour of this vehicle.
Chevrolet Beat – The Beat is one of the most popular small cars around, which offers a great performance. This compact car is not only stylish and easy to maneuver, but also fuel-efficient. It returns a good mileage of 25 kmpl, which makes it a very tempting car to own. Although its power feels a bit stretched on highways, it is a perfect car for the cities.
Tata Indigo eCS – Perhaps no other carmaker knows the Indian conditions better than the Tata and Maruti. Hence, it is not surprising that a Tata car is among the most popular diesel cars. Tata Indigo, the pioneer of the Indian compact sedan segment, is a worthy entrant in the list as it enjoys great customer confidence, high mileage and powerful performance under all conditions.
Maruti-Suzuki Swift DZire – No popular car list is complete without a Maruti car in it. The compact sedan from the leading Indian automaker is one of the most popular cars. Great performance, good mileage, stylish look and seemingly unlimited after sales service centres make this car hugely popular among the buyers.
