Diesel engines have suffered significantly as a result of stricter pollution standards. But regardless of the future, these engines do deliver higher torque and fuel economy. And diesel does provide a good package when it comes to acceleration. So let’s look at the top 5 fastest diesel cars available in India for less than Rs. 10 lakh.
|Car name||Acceleration (0-100 kmph)|
|Tata Altroz||12.52 seconds|
|Honda Amaze||12.50 seconds|
|Mahindra XUV300||11.85 seconds|
|Kia Sonet||11.48 seconds|
|Hyundai i20||11.15 seconds|
5. Tata Altroz
The Altroz, the pinnacle of hatchbacks and Tata’s second safest vehicle, is included in this list of the quickest diesel vehicles under ten lakh rupees. All thanks to the 1.5-liter Revotorq engine’s 90 ps of power and 200 Nm of maximum torque. Tata is also recognised for keeping prices as low as possible; the price of Rs.6,99,500 for this hatchback is evidence of this.
4. Honda Amaze
Honda Amaze is among India’s most popular subcompact sedans. By day a family vehicle, by night a sporty sedan. The statistics support that. Space also brings strong acceleration. The 1.5-liter iDTEC engine under the hood generates 200Nm of torque and 100ps of power. The quick family sedan will cost Rs.7,68,445.
3. Mahindra XUV300
With a diesel engine under the hood, India’s safest SUV is also one of the fastest. 100 kmph can be reached in less than 12 seconds from zero. The engine is the best in its class, a 1.5-liter diesel that generates 116 horsepower and 300 pound-feet of peak torque. Costing Rs. 8,70,000, the XUV300’s base diesel engine configuration.
2. Kia Sonet
Within a few days after its release, the Korean automaker’s second model swept the market. With the Hyundai Venue, its brother, sharing many similarities, Sonet made the decision to be the superior one.

1. Hyundai i20

However, this quick hatch’s diesel engine makes it the second-fastest diesel on our list. The 1.5 U2 CRDi has a max torque of 240Nm and 100ps of power. The starting price of the premium hatchback is Rs.8,19,000.
