When it comes to buying SUVs, buying a diesel one seems to be the natural choice owing to assumptions that petrol SUVs guzzle more fuel. While diesel SUVs are definitely more frugal, most modern-day compact petrol SUVs return mileage figures that are comparable to mid-sized sedans. Hard to believe? Here's a list of the 10 most fuel efficient petrol SUVs in India. Guess what, even the least efficient of this lot delivers over 14kmpl! What's more, most of them are under Rs 10 lakh. So, go ahead, take your pick. Do note that the mileage numbers stated are claimed by ARAI and real-world fuel efficiency figures are usually slightly lesser.
