Yep delhi anytime of the day except office hours.... i was actually scared by mumbai traffic ... One should check out Noida for ROADS and traffic too.

And driving around in NCR my santro gives around 450-500 on a tank full thats around 15ish kmpl.

Its chandigarh any day, followed by Delhi which is a distant second. I bet people who have voted Delhi have not driven in chd. In majority of the sectors traffic jams are unheard off. Heck its even better than noida in many places which I consider the pinnacle of motoring nirvana.

Hi,

Its chandigarh all the way. Though you should include panchkula in list. chandigarh is getting way too much crowdy now days. Though Panchkula have only 40% traffic compared to chandigarh at rush hours like office and skool going and on Sundays. Otherwise you can drive at 150 easily in Panchkula. Gr8 roads in panchkula too.

P.S. Panchkula comes under haryana but it is full copy of chandigarh.

Lightbulb

Sonata: 8 - 10 (SOLD NOW)

Fiesta: (20 - 21) no ac effect

Alto: 21 all the time. with ac avg drops to 19 - 20 (really i dont know how we get this figure with this car. One of our relatives purchased the same last year they are geting no more than 20. We have cheked the avg almost everytime we refill the tank each time we are getting like 20.96 or figures like that even 21.5 sometimes)

800 never checked. We have theory about this car. "Fill it forget it"

Ikon 1.6: 13 with AC

Optra 1.6: 12 - 14 in city and higway measuring upto 16+ with AC [Sold]

Zen: 16 - 18 revving it is fun but sometimes. with ac [sold]
