Cheers
ACI quotes 11.13 .. that was for the 94BHP, 132 NM model. Now with 91BHP and 130.5 .. add a few fractions to it maybe. Who cares

OD also quotes unbelievable figures for the RS. I don't remember the exact figure but I think they claimed it gave more than 12 in the city.

Now I know that FE is dependant on driving styles, conditions etc but some of their claims are really tall.

OD FE Figures : -

NHC : - City - 15, Highway - 27, Overall - 19kmpl.
Octavia RS : - City - 12, Highway - 21, Overall - 15kmpl

BSMOTORING is not far too. It claims that a Sonata Embera is faster then a Octavia RS but in reality RS is faster and a Accord is faster then a Embera, and a Octavia is faster then a Accord hence Sonata is the slowest of the three.

Its better not to take final figures given by these mags. Rather it would be wiser to take the time of all of them and then take their average for a better calculation

No wonder you will notice in this thread (http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/indian...iciency-5.html (What is your Actual Fuel Efficiency?)) that anyone whose car is giving good FE is told that the OD guys will be after him due to their tall claims. Infact ACI received a letter in which a person had wrote he went for a bike after reading ODs FE tests that it gave 101kmpl but it was giving just 58kmpl(near to what ACI had said in their tests) So it will be wiser never to trust OD figures. OD states that a Swift gives 12kmpl in City but in reality it gives 8-9-10kmpl only nothing more(ZXi version atleast from what i have heard)

I'm getting 13 in the city with the AC on all the time. And keep in mind I'm in Bangalore. Mine is a Vxi. Of course I do 50% of my driving at night when the traffic is relatively lesser. I usually keep it below 3000 RPM in the city.

I say just do not trust either magazines or people when it comes to FE or acceleration. Best to see for yourself.

i think ACI figures are more correct then any other magazine... as i know, mileage figures are most accurate in ACI rather than in TG or OD.. but it also depend somewhat on driving style and other factors too...

one of my friend residing at cochin who owns a swift vxi gets about 13.5-14.5 kmpl.also he has changed the stock tyres to 195/60/r14 with alloys.I am of the opinion that swift will always surely deliver above 12kmpl in city with ac.

Some thing surely between 9 to 10 can be trusted. I think its soe way in the early 9s. Not sure though but surely between 9 and 10. Ask GTO, he checked with his GTECH.

People who have Swift told me that the car gives 9-10 in City Driving with AC on. Now thats what FE it gives in MUMBAI.

thats OD for you - make sure your forget the figures as soon as you read them

btw, the NHC VTEC does not give you more FE than the regular iDSI engine - its meant for performance at the cost of a bit less FE

Between 9-10s ?? thats corolla league
As per ACI, OHC VTEC does 0-100 between 10-11 s - around 10.5s or so ...
