In the past few years, the tide has rapidly shifted towards the SUV segment, the place which was earlier enjoyed by the sedans are now been replaced by SUVs, and the most popular amongst these SUVs is the busiest segment of the current time, The Compact SUV segment. This segment has not only replaced the sedan trend but is also taking over the hatchback segment, as some of the cars in this segment are even cheaper than some best-selling hatchbacks like Maruti Suzuki Swift. From the many deciding factors for the buyers, Fuel-efficiency/Mileage has been the most ancient and the most important factor for many. And as the rising prices of petrol and diesel, this key point has been a major selling point for many. Today we bring you the Top 5 Compact SUVs with the best Mileage to make your searches easy.
At the number 1 position, we have the Kia Sonet, with an amazing claimed fuel-efficiency of 24.1 kmpl for the 1.5-litre diesel engine when coupled with the 6-speed manual transmission. This efficiency will tend to be lower for the AMT diesel and 1.2-litre NA petrol and 1.0-litre turbocharged petrol engine.
The Honda WR-V stands second on our list as the 1.5-litre turbo diesel engine when coupled with a 6-speed MT can produce an optimum mileage of 23.7 kmpl. Another option of a Naturally aspirated 1.2-litre petrol engine is also available for this car.
At the 3rd position on our list, we have the Korean cousin of the Kia Sonet, the Hyundai Venue which can produce a fuel economy of 23.28 kmpl for its 1.5-litre diesel engine with the manual transmission gearbox.
Coming at the number 4 position we have the Tata Nexon with a claimed mileage of 22.44 kmpl for its 1.5-litre Revotorq diesel engine which comes coupled with either a 6-speed MT or 6-speed AMT option.
Lastly, we have the Ford EcoSport which has stayed in India for quite an extended period of time and comes with a 1.5-litre diesel engine that can provide a mileage of 21.7 kmpl and comes with an MT standard gearbox.
