In my view the Santro Automatic delivers better mileage since it makes it peak torque at much lower rpm. With the i10 engine peak torque comes at a much higher rpm so given the power loss in the torque converter you are really revving the engine much higher than in a Santro Automatic to get moving and hence consuming more fuel.

I recently got i10 Magna AT, and have done about 1400 km in 4 months. The car is great to drive but the FE is a huge dampener (7-8 kmpl). I believe the Auto gear box is not simply tuned for FE. Have been trying to force gear shift points by taking foot off the gas pedal for a fraction of a sec, but given the way our traffic is, it appears I am almost driving in 1st and 2nd gear.
I have a City NHC MT, which gives me 12+ and it so appears that I am constantly filling up the tank in i10!

@trrk: The FE is with 80% Non-AC and 20% AC. Ofcourse, 80% City Driving and 20% highway driving
@xingamazon: There are different technologies of AT and I do assume that FE would be different for same CC and power output.
For i10 atleast, Hyundai quotes following figures on their site
19.81 for Manual
16.67 for Automatic
I am happy with FE since I used to get 13 to 14 in Santro and around 12 in i10 AT is good enough.
Note from Mod : 11 pages, and I guess whatever had to be discussed has been so. Please continue with any fuel-efficiency tips over on the MAX FE Article (ARTICLE: How to get the maximum Fuel Efficiency).
