In this detailed list titled best mileage cars in Nepal we have complied a list of top best fuel-efficient cars. In this day and age where the prices of petrol and diesel are touching new and alarming heights, it has become apparent to own a four-wheeler which promises to give a decent fuel-efficiency figure and is not a gas-guzzler. However, with each and every manufacturer promising to offer the most fuel-efficient vehicle, it can become a little confusing when picking up the right vehicle which tends to promise the right fuel-efficiency figure. To help you out, we have prepared a list of Nepal top 25 best-mileage cars.
The new Maruti Suzuki Swift’s diesel variant promises to give out a mileage of 28.4 kmpl. The 2018 Swift is based on Suzuki’s new HEARTECH platform. This has helped the hatchback lose close to 90 kgs of weight with this new generation model. The diesel engine in question is the same 1.3-litre DDiS motor. The engine is capable of producing 74 BHP along with 190 NM of peak torque. This time around, along with the 5-speed manual unit, the Swift also gets a 5-speed AGS transmission.
The new Dzire, with a claimed fuel efficiency of 28.4 KMPL has snatched the second spot from the Ciaz. Despite using the same 1.3 L Diesel engine as the model it replaces, the latest generation of the popular sedan is more efficient thanks to the new, lighter HEARTECT platform. There are 5-speed manual and 5-speed AMT option on offer.
In fourth place on our list of the best mileage cars in Neppal is another Maruti. The Baleno shares its engine with the Swift. However, it returns a higher mileage of 27.39 kmpl. This is thanks to a lower kerb weight. The car is marketed as a premium hatchback and is sold through the new Nexa sales channel.
Honda has left no stone unturned for the Jazz’s second stint in Nepal. This time around the Jazz is cheaper than before and comes with a diesel engine option as well. This diesel motor, shared with the Amaze, Mobilio and City, returns an ARAI certified mileage of 27.3 kmpl. Which makes it the third most fuel-efficient car in India, behind the Maruti Ciaz and Maruti Celerio diesel DDiS 125. The Jazz is a direct rival to Hyundai’s Elite i20, but, although it boasts higher mileage figures, it hasn’t been able to match the i20’s popularity. The 1.5-litre iDTEC diesel motor powering the new model Honda Jazz is good for 100PS power and 200Nm torque, but it is let down by high NVH levels.
At number 7 on our list of the best mileage cars in Nepal is the Maruti Ignis. The Ignis is a premium compact hatchback Maruti claims. It is powered by the same 1.3 L diesel that powers other Maruti products.
The Toyota Prius is the most expensive car on our list of the best mileage cars in Nepal. Thanks to a hybrid powertrain, the Prius returns 26.27 KMPL overall according to ARAI test figures. The 1.8 L petrol + 53 kW Electric Motor setup has a combined output of 122 PS.
Ford launched the Figo twins in 2015. Both these cars are easily one of the best in their respective segments. Powering the Diesel variants is the brilliant 1.5 L TDCi engine that churns out 99 BHP and 215 Nm that delivers not just good performance, but great mileage as well. The hatchback and sedan siblings boast of an ARAI rated mileage of 25.83 kmpl.
The Honda Amaze used to be the fuel efficiency king of the diesel compact sedans before the facelifted Maruti Swift Dzire. It still returns a very impressive 25.8 kmpl which ensures the Amaze is easy on your pockets and cheap to run. Although it suffers from some refinement issues with customers complaining the diesel motor as a bit rough and due to poor sound insulation the noise filters through to the cabin, something which is a bit uncharacteristic of a Honda. The Amaze remains a very capable car nonetheless and continues to sell in decent numbers.
There are various reason for the popularity of the Honda City, one of the major ones being the very healthy mileage it returns. However, with the launch of the updated 2017 model, it has slipped down to the tenth spot on our list of the best mileage cars in Nepal. Also, its arch-rival, the Maruti Ciaz, is more fuel efficient and cheaper. In fact, the top end diesel Ciaz is cheaper than the top end City diesel.
The WR-V becomes the third consecutive Honda car on our list of the best mileage cars in Nepal. Based on the Jazz, the WRV is a sub 4-meter crossover that rivals the likes of the Hyundai i20 Active, Fiat Avventura and also the Vitara Brezza and Ford EcoSport. It is powered by the same 1.5 L Diesel engine as the rest of Honda’s products.
Hyundai Grand i10’s sedan sibling, according to ARAI figures, is slightly more fuel efficient. Although it weighs more and has the same diesel engine, Hyundai claims it will return 25.4 KMPL overall. It also happens to be one of the better compact sedans on sale in India right now. The facelift has improved looks and much the updated 1.2 L Diesel is much better than the old 1.1 L unit in terms of performance.
Mahindra KUV100 has an overall fuel mileage of 25.32 kmpl. This makes it one of the Best Mileage cars in Nepal. The KUV100 is tasked with fighting hatchbacks such as the Swift, Grand i10 etc. The KUV100 is a rather unconventional take on large hatchbacks. The SUV-inspired exterior gives it a very distinct look. The flexible 3+3 seating layout adds a touch of practicality to the cabin.
Powering the Kwid is a 799 cc Petrol engine. The Kwid returns a claimed mileage of 25.17 kmpl. The engine churns out 53 BHP of max. power and 72 Nm of peak torque. The Renault Kwid rivals the likes of the Maruti Alto 800, Hyundai Eon and the Datsun Redi-GO.
Sharing the 16th spot on the list of Best Mileage Cars In Nepal is the Datsun Redi-GO. It is based on the same platform. Powering it is also the same engine. Hence, it has the same mileage. Manufacturing is also at the same facility. However, the design approach is totally different. And the Redi-GO boasts a tall boy design with high ground clearance and easy ingress and egress for the passengers.
At an ARAI certified fuel efficiency rating of 24.95 KMPL, the Hyundai Grand i10 comes in at number 17, a few places below its sedan sibling, on our list of the best mileage cars in India.

This engine churns out 126 BHP along with 260 NM of peak torque. The power is transmitted to the front wheels with the help of a 6-speed manual transmission.
One of the Nepal’s highest selling car, the Alto 800, has an ARAI mileage of 24.72 KMPL. This makes the Alto 800 only a shade less frugal than the Kwid/Redi-Go. The CNG version has a claimed mileage of 33.44 km/kg.
Maruti’s only MPV in Nepal comes in at number 20 on our list of the best mileage cars in Nepal. It comes with a 1.3 L Diesel that benefits from mild hybrid tech. It also enables Maruti to take advantage of the FAME scheme helping in the reduction of Ertiga diesel’s prices.
