Initially, even I had apprehensions on achieving higher mileage than stated by the manufacturer. Over a period of time as i got to know my car better and armed with informations from our forum, I made small but significant changes to my driving style and voila my FE has shown considerable improvement. And when I applied this new found driving style on my outstation journey, the FE improved from ~19km/l to 22.1km/l on my Wagon R. This is just with the driving style and have not yet thought of tuning the engine

Hence dont just giveup but keep refining your driving.

I'm only getting 8.5 with my CVT box.

Have you done any tuning change?
Delhi's traffic jams are legendary - maybe that could be a reason.

Good FE. however, did you take the picture whilst driving? I would refrain from doing that - in the interest of safety.

Also Recommend you to read the forum rules.

Sir thank you for your reply.
Photo taken by wife on request.
The km/ltr increase is attributed to proper tyre pressure
Accelerating gradually, braking or slowing down well in advance to avoid abrupt changes in speed. I usually switch off the air con while getting off the mark and in the 1st and 2nd gears.

It sure is nice to see some activity on this thread. Never thought I'd see more owners too

That is phenomenal although this must be highway FE right? I achieve around 13-15.5 kmpl averages with cruise control set at triple digit speeds with a few high speed bursts now and then on the highway so 16 seems likely

8.5 within the city from a CVT is a pretty healthy mileage there are members here who own he CVT variant and struggle to get more than 6 so I wouldn't worry if I were you. Highway FE must be a LOT better though

Can everyone post the Tyre change,and replacement suggestions.
I replaced with nankang 225/55/r17
Got 4 of them replaced @ 27500
Means 6875 per tyre
Have driven 1200 kms so far.The ride quality is far better
Better grip and braking.
The change in km/lt needs to be evaluate

Im still on my 1st set (Factory Fitted Yokohamas). Hearing about "nankang" brand for the first time. How good are they from your previous set? I have to replace my stepney tire as it was damaged quite badly on a recent trip. Any suggestions?

What kind of resale value can we expect for this car.
I know the comfort and the quality you may get after selling this .kizashi comfort is irreplaceable,unless you go in for an upgrade.
I had received offers for approximately 6.5 to 7 lakhs.
But decided to retain this,and go in for a new car .
I think it is a tough situation to decide.
Anyone please share your wisdom .

You have not mentioned the Mfg Year for your kizashi, but presuming 3+ years 6.5L does seem OK for a Kizashi and actually for all cars in this segment resale does drop MIN 60% of Ex showroom price (not OTR Price) in 3 years.

It is always best to retain ones car for as long as possible from a financial perspective.

Since you find the Kizashi to be quite comfortable why are you looking for a sale unless it is an Upgrade? The longer you can use a current vehicle the better. The Kizashi rear especially is quite beautiful and current. The Front tough is typical Suzuki design and that is a negative. If kms per year are low then again using the Kizashi for as long as possible would make all the more sense.

If indeed you are looking for an Upgrade, my suggestion would be to sell of the Kizashi unless you have a real use for it in the household, else it would not really be used and only depreciate even further a year down the line.

Depends how many kms you have covered and what condition your car is in. My car which was bought and registered in 2012 and has done 50k kms, gets pretty healthy quotes (considering the poor resale value of a D-Segment Sedan that too carrying the Suzuki badge). Maruti True Value offered me 8.8 lakhs recently and a few people I know in the business, tell me they can sell it for 11 lakhs.

PS: I have no intentions of selling my car but its always good to know such things

If you own a Kizashi and can afford to maintain, just retain. Don't sell. Kizashi came to India when Maruti was vfm brand and nexa wasn't existent.
Soon, Kizashi will be the most sought after petrol vehicle in used car market. Wish I had a Kizashi!
