Well, this is a Maruti Suzuki and will offer excellent fuel mileage along with maintenance cost that will not bother you at all! This generation of Alto was not packed with features but can still meet the requirements like air conditioner. Plus, most owners have an aftermarket stereo, so entertainment won’t be a problem either. The Alto comes with a 796cc engine along with an optional CNG variant.

You will find aftermarket CNG fitted Esteem in the used car market but we would suggest you to buy a petrol MPFI variant as it is really fun to drive.

Well, this is a Maruti so you can easily get an aftermarket CNG kit as well. Wondering what features you’ll get? It totally depends on what type you are going for!.
5. Wagon R
Wagon R needs no introduction! Maruti Suzuki launched Wagon R in India in 1999 and there is not a single road in India where you will not see Wagon R in traffic. Wagon R is a popular choice among masses and hence has made it to our list of cars under 1 lakh. Performance, efficiency, location & features, Wagon R has it all! Maruti’s Tallboy has been a best seller in the Indian market and is still the first choice of many in the used car market. Though Maruti introduced company fitted CNG in 2010, you can anytime go for the aftermarket CNG kit in Wagon R which will help you cut your running cost by more.
6. Chevrolet Spark
We all know that Chevrolet no longer produces or sells cars in India. Hence, all Chevrolet cars have lost value in the Indian used car market. Considering the price range below Rs 1 lakh, you can get yourself a Chevrolet Spark that comes with all modern features (if you find a higher variant). Plus, you won’t have to spend much to maintain the spark. We all know that American Cars is one of the best luxury providers in the segment. For those who do not want to buy Maruti, Spark can be a good option.
7. Chevrolet Aveo
8. Hyundai Santro
The Hyundai Santro is a great car in itself. Performance, reliability or features, you get everything you could ask for! The Santro Xing has been present in various variants over the years.

It is a perfect pick among used cars under 1 lakh because of its reliability and its excellent compatibility with CNG.

Baleno and i20 are the best selling premium hatches in today’s world, but since the existence of these two be along with a 4-Star Euro NCAP safety rating! Many top-selling cars in India still struggle to score that! If you want a safe car, Getz should be your choice for sure. Although this hatch won’t offer you the fuel efficiency similar to other cars listed above, it will offer you a safe ride which is more important we suppose!
10. Tata Nano
Tata Nano is already known to be India’s cheapest car! When Tata launched Nano in India, they claimed it to be the car that everyone will get under 1Lakh. But that was just for the base variant which didn’t have many features. Now, you can even get a top-variant of the Tata Nano under 1 Lakh! Although there is a CNG variant of the Nano, we don’t recommend to buy it because the power output will be so less that you won’t be able to experience this fun-to-drive car at its full potential!
