Compact hatchbacks are some of the most desirable cars for their zippy performance, compact dimensions and the kind of kit they offer. Now, making a purchase decision is truly tricky, and one of the major deciding factors is fuel economy. So here, we pit the only compact diesel hatchbacks on offer in India, the Hyundai Grand i10 Nios and the Ford Figo (both manual versions), and take a look at their real-world fuel efficiency figures.

City Fuel Economy

For an average Indian customer, his/her car is predominantly driven in the confines of a city. Here's where fuel-economy takes precedence, while ease of driving and ride quality are put on a back-burner. In CarWale’s real-world fuel efficiency test, the Nios diesel manual being a compact and lighter car, delivered 16.13kmpl in city. On the contrary, the heavier Figo diesel manual covered 14.14km in one litre. The Nios not only offers lower running costs, it also means that you don't have to frequently tank it up.

Highway Fuel Economy

The story continues in the highway fuel economy department as well, as the Hyundai Grand i10 Nios wins here too. Though the Ford Figo's 1.5-litre motor is punchier than the Nios' puny 1.2-litre unit, it's the latter that is more efficient. The Grand i10 Nios diesel returns a fuel economy of 22.74kmpl, while the Figo diesel delivers a tad lower fuel efficiency of 19.67kmpl. And despite being a three-pot motor, the Nios' motor is more refined than the one in the Figo.

So, there you have it. The Hyundai Grand i10 Nios is the most fuel efficient hatchback amongst the two. It is also a well-kitted car, along with better fit and finish. However, when it comes to engine performance, ride quality and driving dynamics, the Ford Figo is the better car. We have driven both these cars, and if you wish to know more about them, here's our comprehensive comparison road test.
