Truly said! Even I think so, its difficult to judge whether we are sitting in a diesel hatch or not! The insulation is so perfect and we feel just like a petrol noise inside. Hyundai cars are great in this matter.

Fiesta tdci is also very silent inside. Swift,dzire and Ertiga are pretty good as well.

I think new gen Tata cars like Vista and Manza have got good insulation compared to what it was with previous gen Tatas.
I second that. Especially, on the highways, I20 diesel is very very refined. Its hard to make out its a oil burner under its hood !

+1 to that. The iGen i20 is even better than the old one (I've driven both). And whatever little noise manages to filter through to the cabin is only when you rip the engine past its juicy zone.

Check out the newly launched VISTA D-90.
Recently test drove one for almost a day (dealer was a friend of mine) and was very, very impressed with the low NVH levels.

Even at 100+ speeds, the cabin remained impressively quiet with a remarkable lack of mechanical, wind and road noise. Also the suspension works very quietly, without any audible thumps and clunks

Definitely a worthy contender for the "quietest diesel hatch below Rs 10lakh" trophy!

How about Mahindra Xylo? With AC, it is as silent as anyone else. In fact you thinks is it surely a diesel vehicle or not. I find its insulation to be very good for that kind of vehicle in that price range. Its one of the best for sure.

True about i20 especially the refreshed version. Forget the back seat, there was no noise even from the front seat as well

I think the fiestas get progressively louder as they age. I have noticed this with my in-law's fiesta. Maybe its just our car but I dont think it has aged very well.

I had undergone test drives of almost all diesel babies < 10 L on road. The most silent and smooth kid in my opinion is next gen i20. In normal scenarios its difficult for a person with average hearing abilities to get the engine noise inside the cabin and hardly you feel any vibrations. In stand still, provided you don't look at the console, its hard to recognize whether the car is on or off. While driving, if you play the music next to 'whisper smooth' volume, you can't hear any noise from 90 horses under the hood.
