Volkman, how do you measure the mileage, do you take note of the peak mileage the car hits or you look at the mileage at the end of the journey? I see at the end of the journey and here is what I get

City Heavy Traffic - 12-13
City Light Traffic - 15-16
Highway upto 80 kmph - 20-22
Highway above 80 kmph - 18-19

I always check at the end of the journey, in this case( FE pics posted above) it is at 27 km one way.
Average speed is usually at 40 ~60km/h.
I work on flextime and adjust time to beat the traffic jams which to some extent am successful here.

I am not really too concerned about FE, but with the DDiS200 am truly amazed how this is achieved

Presenting the S Cross, after a year's( +) of ownership.

Yes- the car is kept covered every day after use

Having bought the DDiS200 for the intended purpose ( city drive) it has met all the criteria with the bonus of having a very proactive After sales experience ( most points discussed are in comparison to VW )

About the S Cross after ~ 13,000 km ( points are repeated but then that is the reality too),

Top 5 Qualities.
1. Extraordinary mileage( sedate driving)
2. Drives like an hatch
3. Great stability and can taken broken roads (patches) with ease.
4. Light clutch
5. Great feel to be in the cabin - all round visibility

Some improvements needed
1. Vibrations on window glasses if not fully closed.
2. Back lit switches
3. Rear AC vent
4. Built though okay for Maruti's standards can't match those of VW's.

Trips done:
1. One highway (round trip) ~1400km , all the rest are within city limits. no issues when driven in designated speeds on highways ( 3 passengers+ luggage)


Mileage
- Highest in low traffic (evenings)

- lowest in normal traffic (evenings)

In dense traffic have seen 19 km/l as the lowest so far( after 1000 km in odo)

Ideally yes tankful-tankful is the best approach. But what I would suggest is to log all your fills on a mobile app. Since the data filled in is regular, you get a good sense of regular mileage (whether city or highway).

But yes I rarely do part fill. Its always tank-up. But I use auto-stop and dont fill to the brim. So that way Auto-stop error can creep in. But I live with it. I have details of all the 4 years of fill for my car thanks to mobile apps. It works well.

Volkman, I have come across a couple of posts in which the rear seat bench can be completely removed so that a flat floor is obtained when the seats are folded. My RM and the Service guys has no idea about it. Do you know how to remove the rear bench?

Volkman, which is the car cover that you use on your s-cross? Can you please share a link from where you have bought it?

I guess he should have brought it from Nexa itself. I had a similar one bought from the dealer and happy with it as I have been using it for last 5 months.

Volkman apologies for barging in and responding at the cover looks similar to mine. I hope my assumption is correct

That's an awesome mileage volkman10 . I recently did a trip to kanpur in my scross 1.6 which gave a mileage of 16. (just one servicing has been done ) .

But one thing i must admit if you drive this car at 100kmph , it feels like you are going too slow . The car give you immense confidence to go at 140 as well . Its truly meant for the highways .
