I drive a Palio 1.6 Sport, and a month earlier I'm getting 10KMPL(100% AC) in city and this month I got at 12KMPL(30% AC). The reason is now my office is very near and has less traffic for 5 kms and more traffic for rest of the 4 kms, where I can cruise at 60KMPH leisurely & is as good as travelling on a highway.

Point I'm trying to make here is that, FE in city varies with all type of parameters, may be we can safely assume Palio 1.6 gives around 10KMPL in city with normal driving.

Even once I got around 17.X KMPL on a pure highway drive and always getting above 15 KMPL with 100% AC on highway run.

I agree...

The worst case scenario I have got 8.5 to 9.....The normal conditions 10 is easily manageble. All figures 100% AC. I have never tried with part AC.

The express way drive easily gives 15 to 16. This is gem of a car.

@mahadev_kc

Right on buddy. Lots of factors affect FE.
Driving style being most prominent.
I too think 10kmpl is realistic average city traffic milage with full ac.
Highways I think minimum expectation should be 15 and anything above as a bonus FE.

Nice to see the Fiat salesman deriding his own product, the Stile. If he talks this way, why does the Fiat gang lambast us for saying so?

I'd like to see anything brake from 80 to 0 in 4 seconds.

PS: Did you really expect him to wax eloquent about his competitors? Every one of them outsells the Palio, with the possible exception of the Aveo UVA or whatever, so he's hardly going to tell you the Estilo gives 14 kmpl and the Tata spares are really cheap.

To know this my friend one has to take a long journey way back into older threads on TBHP. Or just wear your seatbelts and hang in there for a couple of hours. You will see all of them here .

PS: No offense to anyone, I am one among you. I drive a Fiat Palio 1.6 Gtx too. Seriously.

I'm spreading my knowledge. Last time I spread it, a lot of posts by one of the Fiat fans got deleted because I was quoting simple facts from Autocar India. The Stile is the slowest car in its segment, possibly the slowest petrol car in India. Heck, the Fiat salesmen called it's acceleration khaak, which means dirt IIRC.

I would not like knowledge -- like braking hard from 80 to 0 in 4 seconds, or 'speed turns', whatever on earth they may be, at 60ks, whatever 'ks' is supposed to mean -- to be spread.

About the offence, none taken.
