arent these figures poor ,, I thought the new city had the power reduction for better economy..

If this is the efficiency it gives,,,,,,what bad is the old 1.5 city with those 100 dark horses ...or for any reason the 1.3 is no bad with efficiency of 12 in city and 15-16 on highways.
even the old city 1.5 gives abt 10 with ac in city...under normal driving.

If they wanted to improve the passenger cabin, they could as well have kept the old engine.


There is a new look city in my bldg , and the owner drives it preety decently ( in fact very aaram se)....without the first service the car gives 10 in city with AC on first point...

MAN
guys plz help.
im too young to drive so my driver drives most of the times.
my avg is as follows
all with a.c.
corolla
highway - 14 - 15
city - 8 - 9

palio 1.6
highway - 13 . xx
city - 7.5 - 8.5

ikon 1.6
city - 8 +
highway - 12

nexia
city - 6 - 7
highway - 9 - 10

accord manual
city - 6 - 6.5
highway - 9 - 10

man looking at these figures and rising fuel prices , diesel cars make sense.
i dont mind replacing my ikon with an accent crdi or my nexia with a petra / indigo diesel
but no touching the palio
it was bought for redlining and it shall stay that way.
btw
what are ure opinions on a fuel saver for my nexia.
it costs 350 - 1000 bucks.
any effect on engine , power
itll hopefully increase my FE by 1 - 2 kmpl

Hey Lambo,
Very honestly, these are the kind of consumption figures that you can expect in Mumbai city. We're generally shuffling between 1st, 2nd and 3rd gears and hardly get to use the remaining two. Among the people that I know, no one's car is giving a substantially better consumption figure. The Accent CRDi is not a bad car - good combo of economy and performance, but, you could wait for the Getz too.

According to the Autocarindia July 2004 B Segment test:

Opel Corsa Sail 1.4: City 9 - Highway 13.8

Fiat Palio NV: City 9.2 - Highway 14

Tata Indica Petrol: City 8.9 - Highway 14.9

Maruti Zen: City 11.2 - Highway 16.7

Hyundai Santro Xing: City 10.3 - Highway 16.3

Maruti WagonR: City 11.9 - Highway 16.4

I presume that most of this was in Bombay or Delhi daily driving conditions. They seem extremely realistic.

I honestly don't know. I would like it to be 15 but I suspect it's more like 11-12. On the highway on a nearly empty tank I filled 500 bucks in Pune and was nearly empty again at Sahar airport, thats like 200-210 km to around 12L. By the way its a Zen.

Hey Raul,

Its very difficult to estimate FE by looking at the fuel guage like that, the way to do it is fill your tank all the way up (till the machine automatically cuts the supply, and no more.) Reset your tripmeter (if you dont like doing unnecessary math). And then drive 200-300km and then fill up again to the top where the machine auto stops.
Then see the amount of litres filled, which should be pretty close to the exact amount of litres you have used (almost exact if its at the same machine).
Then divide the KM on your tripmeter by the Litres filled. (This is where cellphone calculators come in handy.)
And then you have a pretty accurate FE figure!

Hope i am not repeating what you aldready know
cheers
