You never know. Delhi traffic can vary from absolute crawl speeds to 40-50 km/hr (or more ) depending on the location.

I'm not sure how people interpret the term "fuel efficiency in city". Suppose someone lives near NICE road in bangalore and drives 25km to Electronic city every day, he is going to get better fuel efficiency than that in many Indian highways. Just because this road is in Bangalore city and leading to ECity shouldn't qualify this as a city drive, in my opinion

That should be one of the reasons for unbelievably high city FE reported here. On the other hand, many of those who drive in many parts of Bangalore see lesser than expected FE as this city presents some of the worst case scenarios for city traffic.

True. Only the original posters can tell better.

I think we should use avg speed, instead of city/highway, as an indicator of the driving conditions.

This. I think everyone should post their average speed with the mileage numbers. This would make it much more apt for comparison.

We bought a New Swift VXI AMT on July 4th 2019 and currently the odo is at 2200 km. I have recently calculated the fuel efficiency through tank full to tank full method. Our general usage is 50% highway - 50% city and the mileage that we are able extract as of now is 17.9 kmpl.

We own a Ford Figo 1.5 Petrol AT purchased in January 2016. The car has been used 100% in Bangalore city and has yet to see the highways. We mostly rent a self drive vehicle when we head out of town.

The Figo is used with the AC on full time and returns around 10 kmpl consistently. Mileage is calculated tank full to tank full.

Santa Fe 4WD manual 1st gen returns around 10kmpl still on my mixed usage. Although MID says 8L / 100km its not correct. Its lower to around 10kmpl when converted and real world usage.

Little too.optimistic for a petrol engine. But being Maruti, can be very much accurate. I wonder how much the diesel would give?

Both my 2013 Dzire DDis & 2014 Honda Amaze i-Dtec give near or about 13kmpl in Mumbai city. This is strictly as per the MID. The mileage since the advent of the monsoon has dropped. Before that used to get slightly over 14kmpl.
