Sedans were once the stepping stones into the premium space in India. But it has lost all of its charisma to the new evolving generation of crossovers that are rapidly taking over. The premium sedan segment has become a thin line which is on the verge of extinction but there are a few impressive offerings still that give us hope.

As the premium sedan segment is almost negligible when compared to the other prominent ones, we have compiled a list of the best mileage sedans in the bracket of Rs. 10-20 lakh, to give you more leverage to choose from. The best overall value for money cars available under Rs. 20 lakh mark is Honda Civic, Hyundai Elantra, Toyota Yaris, Hyundai Verna and Honda City.

Honda Civic

Honda Civic has made a comeback after 8 long years. The first-gen Honda Civic in India was known for its futuristic appeal and sleek looks. The new Civic also continues to flaunt most of its distinctive features but in a more practical sense.

Toyota Yaris

Toyota Yaris is a compact sedan that lies at the higher end of its spectrum. We say so because 2020 Yaris is priced from Rs. 8.76 lakh to Rs. 14.18 lakh(Ex-Showroom Delhi). It is a bold offering from Toyota which might also not suffice for many due to its polarising looks and odd-sized panels all around.

2020 Toyota Yaris is powered by a 1.5L petrol engine only and is coupled to either a 6-Speed manual or a CVT gearbox. Toyota Yaris returns a mileage of 17.1-17.8 KMPL with marginal differences due to the gearboxes.
