Even at high speeds.. lol what high speed you are talking about? 140-150-160 kmph? Come on man, talk some sense. How you will get almost the same mileage when you are driving the car 50-60 kmph or high speeds 120-130-140 kmph?
BTW do you have outskirts on your SX4? Also do you visit Noida DND regularly? because i think i had seen your car few times on DND flyover.

Hi Gangsta,
Me too have a SX4(White with outskirts) done 5000 km now. I travel daily from Noida to Gurgaon. Maintain a speed of 110-120 in Noida and Gurgaon Expressway and avg 50-60 in Delhi road from Ashram to DhaulaKuan. And I am getting around 14+ and by 14+ i mean nothing less than 14 in my last 3 tank full. 50% AC as now as AC not required when I return during night.

Hello neeraj,
thats good to see that you are getting this much mileage. At what time you can maintain 50-60 kmph on Ashram to dhaulakuan?
I had seen 2 different white SX4 on DND with outer skirts.
1. with custome muffler, not the soundy kinda muffler.
2. stock muffler.

which one is yours?
One day i zoomed from a white sx4 with outer skirts. SX4 guy tried to chase me but i was too fast as i was in a hurry. was that you on DND? lol oh by the way i was in my Silver Accent with a soundy muffler as visit noida regularly.

Aha! that's great. Few people are getting this mileage. 100% city? oops!! city means expressways? or delhi's messed up roads? also what about your driving style?

Now its getting interesting as for the first time i got 3 good response of getting 13+ kmpl in cities for SX4 and all the 3 from Delhi/NCR Side. Cheers cheers:

I leave home(Noida) at 12:30 pm and again leave office(Gurgaon) at around 9:30-9:45 pm.

I have a stock muffler. I really do not remember any incident. but usually I do not drive above 80 when going from Noida to delhi in the afternoon(fear of Delhi cops-these guys stand in DND to challan over speeding). Yes, but when I return at night, as that time i cruise around 100-130. So what time did you see the SX4??

I agree with both the SX4 owners who get 10-11kmpl and also with those that get 12-14kmpl. The reason is that the place of use is different and that makes a big difference in FE figures - for any car, not just the SX4.

For Chennai/Blore kind of traffic, with 100%a/c, I would expect the SX4 to give 10-11kmpl, as mentioned by mail4loys. For NCR/Noida folks with expressways, 12-14 should be the norm as mentioned by them.

So, nothing strange in the varying figures - it is about where you are driving.

Na Na, i had been to delhi from noida many times in the afternoon speeding on DND. You will find the cops for speed usually bet. 8:30 to 10:30 AM and that too going to noida. They have only 1 place, usually the first curve going to the left while going to the noida. i.e just after 1/4 distance covered on DND flyover. Thats is a bit blind curve to the left, so in the morning. I drive at 80 till that blind curve then again if i'm in a mood to drive fast or in a hurry then only i hammer the gas else i lite up my ciggy after that curve, hit my music and cruise at 50-60 kmph and same thing cont. on greater noida expressways.

In the afternoon time around 1-1:30 pm, and around 1 month back because i do remember that my gf was waiting for me for around 2 hours and i was busy and enjoying my friend's Verna crdi on expressway noida and she was shouting at me like a mad bull.

You have the best time to leave for the office and coming back. I can understand you can maintain an average speed of 50-60 kmph on ring road including few stupid small jams caused due to stupid and idiot people.

I'm took my car to Maruti Service Station (ABT Maruti - Guindy) yesterday and enquired about mileage and he told that it is the average people get on Zxi model and not to be worried about!
