The mileage figures from SX4 are pretty impressive considering it a 1.2 tonne car with a 1.6 petrol engine. Its between 11-12 kmpl as reported by owners, which is great IMHO

1.6 gtx 18 kmpl without ac including two ghats to and fro .
petra diesel 30.63 without a/c with 5 people on board plus 50 kg dead weight .
one customer couldnot accept the figure of 21 kmpl so we went for the back to back test... we got 23 the second time
for tatas
xeta <petrol>26 kmpl without a/c
indigo pet 18 in ac .
asnd voila !!! wvery one without any exception started getting good avrages
the test procedure is simple physical overflow to physical overflow @80 to 110 kms of drive .. kms covered and fuel comsumed
Would surely like to know how did you drive to get such economy figures.

Exactly my thoughts - its more powerful than the Baleno, weighs around 200kgs more but the FE is more or less close to Baleno city FE figures.
Impressive, I would say.

You still wouldnt trade off your baleno for the SX-4. Would you ?

well, my zen gives a consistent 12-12.5 in city, the city being bombay. On highway, at a constant speed of about 70-90Kmph it gives an impressive 15.5-16.5. And that, makes me happy!

My new Cedia Sports -

After first tank fill: 8.5 KM/L with 100% AC and city driving only

After second tank fill: 12.5 KM/L with 50% city / highway driving; with AC.

I am assuming the figures should improve after the first service which is due soon.
