A tightly packed segment with a fleet of competitively priced hot hatches, the Fiat Grande Punto, Maruti Suzuki Ritz, Nissan Micra dci, Maruti Suzuki Swift, Ford Figo, Hyundai i20, Indica Vista and the Volkswagen Polo come together to form the 'hot hatch diesel club' for Indian consumers. ZigWheels looks at their overall mile munching capabilities amongst other performance determining factors.

 

Though the initial purchase price and after-sales service costs are higher than the petrol ones, but these costs can be recovered with the monthly running. Now comes the big question; which diesel hatch is the best to go with? We at ZigWheels give you a list of the hot picks in the market.
    

 

Ford Figo 1.4 Duratorq Titanium

A neat small car from the Blue Oval, the Figo is a worthy hatchback to own. Powered by a 1399cc engine which is same as the Fiesta and the Ikon, the Figo has set the fire for the large B-segment cars.

 

With the excellent 1.4-litre Duratorq TDCi diesel engine, the Figo diesel is available in four trim options—Lxi, VXi, ZXi and Titanium; the top model Titanium costs you Rs. 5.45 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi) with an estimated mileage fuel economy of 15kmpl (city) and 18kmpl (highway).

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Hyundai I20 1.4 (D) Asta


Launched in 2008, the Hyundai i20 is a premium hatchback on offer from Hyundai Motor India. Offered with a choice of petrol and diesel engines, the i20 is probably the most beautiful Hyundai available in India and its good looks have had a lot to do with its success.

 

Powered with 1396cc engine, the i20 diesel is available in four variants—Era, Magna, Sportz and Asta. The top model Asta comes at a cost of Rs. 6.98 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi) and delivers a mileage of 18kmpl (city) and 23kmpl (highway). Adding to that is the fact that it offers a brilliant ride quality making Hyundai i20 a great package.
