Thule has bicycle racks for all types of vehicles. I have a 3 bike rack for hatchback/mpv/suv, and frequently swap between the innova & crv. Keeps the interiors of the vehicle clean as well.

the grand vitara shud also be considered for ur requirements.

do u have a budget for ur purchase?

I am shortly posting my ownership thread for Outlander 2010 (non facelift). The worst average that I got (tank full to tankfull, same pump method and not onboard computed) is 8.9 kmpl, my commute was through choked kalindikunj to CR park in dense traffic and one trip to Excel's service station at faridabad road (again bumper to bumper).

On my last refill (mostly expressway and one trip to Noida sector-18) I got 9.5 kmpl. I am yet to refuel but I am expecting a similar figure.

But I agree with sknair that if you are constantly in bumper-to-bumper 5kmph traffic than expect 5-7 kmpl. Dont forget that this is a SUV with 2.4 liter engine.

congrats Rishi.
Since the engine is same in both versions, FE should be same. also there is no significant weight difference.

I agree.

Somehow I am able to extract good FE from my vehicles I enjoyed my Lancer Invecs ownership where I consistantly got over 9.5 from my car. Similar story with my Cedia, Petra and Palio.

On my daily commute, I drive 23 each way on a expressway, I manage to see 10.5 to 11.2 on MID as instant average driving at 100 kmph using cruise control 85% of distance.

The above mentioned figures (8.9) were when I did 2 rounds from my office to CR park and Excel motor's service center on Faridabad road.

I am sure on my normal commute I should get 9/9.5 overall.

This is good average Rishi, I have a very short driving cycle (with heavy trafic) to my office; thats primary cause of reduced FE. I will start checking my week end city driving...

Default Re: Outlander, Captiva or wait for Pajero Sports?

Hi,

I have an outlander for the past 1 + year. I am quite happy with that and I get good mileage. I get 8 +/- in the city (Bangalore Traffic) and it gives similar or more milage than my I20 (1.4 Lt Petrol automatic).

Many may not believe me that I20 automatic gives same or less mileage than outlander. But I own both and my first hand experience.

Funny. 2 years after the OP asked if he should wait for the Pajero Sport, the pajero sport actually arrives.

Hindustan Motors is a disgrace.
