Jazz CVT(Odo-7800kms)

City(MID) : 11.7-12.5
City (T2T) : 11 - 11.5 (Usually 0.7-1kmpl error, but this ain't uniform)
Highways : 16-19kmpl(T2T)

City drives are purely on D mode(drive) with gentle foot in bangalore office hours(7AM-8AM/3PM-4PM) via ORR/HSR/Hosur-road. 2-3 adults onboard usually, 4 at max.

Highway drives in D mode(80-90kmph) with occasional cruise control return excellent figures of 17-19kmpl. Triple digit spirited driving(sports mode with paddle-shifters around 4-5k RPM) on highways return anything between 15-16kmpl.

Fuel : Always HP unleaded petrol.

I think Honda City also gives the same mileage.

Yes boss, this may be probably due to my driving style which is on the sedate side - I rarely push the car for quick overtaking or otherwise as the engine is now old and I just don't need the stress of quick maneuvering in city roads with all the honking and cab traffic. Further, roads in Delhi are in relatively better shape as compared to other cities, so I am able to maintain car in a particular gear for a longer time.

Any reason why your Verna is way less efficient than the Creta with the same engine? Is it an auto by any chance?

In fact, all else being equal, a sedan should have better FE than SUV due to lower air drag and weight.

I believe the same 1.6 liter petrol is in a different state of tune in the Verna as compared with the Creta given that Verna is a 6 speed manual (including reverse) and the Creta being a 7 speed manual (including reverse).

A secondary factor might also be that the Verna is now 7 years old while the Creta is 3 !?

Would any Seltos petrol 1.4 turbo DCT/manual owner comment on their city/highway mileage cycles please.

Honda Amaze diesel (1.5 i-dtec) - 22 (city), 27-30 (highway)
Volkswagen Polo petrol (1.2 MPI) - 12 (city), 17 (highway)
Jeep Compass petrol (1.4 Multiair DCT) - 9 (city), 12 (highway)

All the above figures are with AC on 99% of the time.

My Amaze amazed everyone with the fuel economy. I once drove from Lucknow to Delhi via Kanpur & Agra (a trip of exactly 562 kms) with 16.3 litres of diesel (tank full to tank full measurement). Was driving constantly at 70 kmph. This translates to 35 kmpl!

Mighty impressive! Must be manual transmission? Even Honda City diesel has similar ARAI mileage.

Generally, CVT is very efficient. Some CVTs have better ARAI figure than the manual counterparts. But for Amaze diesel, CVT FE is about 3 kmpl lower than manual. Any idea why?

Oh my, that's brilliant FE. And 70 kmph isn't a bad speed either. I once drove my Figo Sports Diesel for nearly 200 kms and it returned a FE of 32 kmpl without AC and it was late in the night with almost zero traffic.

The difference is 3.6 kmpl. This, despite the CVT version producing 20 PS less power and 40 NM less torque!

Mine was the first generation of i-dtec in India and yes, it was manual transmission.

I read an article on cardekho (https://www.cardekho.com/india-car-n...ison-21898.htm) which says
Quote:
The lower fuel efficiency of the City CVT is due to the fact that in order to change pace, its powertrain makes the engine work harder (revs higher) in comparison to the manual transmission. Since a real world scenario sees a lot of change in speed, even on the highways in India, the City CVT returns a lower fuel efficiency compared to the manual.
Another reason - for me to have that kind of efficiency, I had to keep the vehicle constantly around 1100-1400 rpm range. I think when on lower RPM, the CVT would shift to a lower gear?
Also 1st generation did not had CVT, and this current generation looks better build so must be heavier? (not sure about that though)

Thats very impressive for the Figo! I had similar conditions when I got this 35 kmpl, but even in general, with all the traffic the FE stayed around 28 kmpl for higways

This is what I am getting these days in my Ignis. MID usually shows inflated number by 1-2 KM/L (22.2km/l is for last 530 kms).Actual mileage I am getting is around 20KM/L (minimal AC usage).

Fuel tank of Ignis is rather small (32 l) still almost 530 km done and 3 bars still remaining. Should be able to complete 600KM+ before next refill.

My Brezza has done close to 17500kms. I calculate average based on tankful to tankful method. Worst I've got was around 16.xx kmpl. But mostly it hovers around 19-20kmpl. Last tankful has given me 19.7kmpl (mid showed 18.6kmpl). This is a highway car with very little running inside the city.

Please mention usage pattern (city/highway), and fuel type.
