Grand Vitara CNG, Sonet diesel among the most fuel-efficient SUVs under 15 lakhs.

When considering upgrading from your over-three-year-old Hyundai Venue petrol, you have two appealing options: the Kia Sonet diesel iMT or the Maruti Grand Vitara CNG. With an annual running of 16,000km and concerns about compromising boot space with an aftermarket CNG kit in your Venue, it’s essential to choose wisely.

In terms of equipment, the Sonet diesel’s top trims are packed with features, while the Grand Vitara’s CNG option is limited to mid-spec trims. The Sonet 1.5 diesel stands out in the market for its strong performance and exceptional refinement, making it a top choice for many drivers. On the other hand, the Grand Vitara CNG provides a practical alternative but lacks the driving finesse of the Sonet diesel.

While the future of diesel cars may be uncertain, apart from Delhi-NCR’s 10-year diesel ban, there are no significant concerns in other regions of the country. It’s crucial to weigh the pros and cons of diesel versus CNG based on your specific needs and preferences.
