(Most of my friends complain about inconsistent FE of their i10s).
I have undertaken 4 fuel economy tests on my I10 so far, using the auto cut-off system from the same dispenser of the same pump. The readings (across different driving conditions) are as follows: 18.74 kmpl
, 18.74 kmpl
, 17.47 kmpl
and 17.59 kmpl
. I must admit, however, that I am a sedate drive and hence, these may seem pretty FE figures.

Ritz can accommodate 5 passengers just like i10, and can handle the luggage just like i10, if not better. And Ritz's ride quality is far better than i10 with all these passengers and luggage.
I find your thoughts, findings, wording all very similar to one Team-BHPian named Rohan. Is it just a coincidence?
Fair enough. If you are happy with the Ritz, it is all that matters. Who is Rohan? Let me assure you that we are two different individuals.

Both are hatches with much limited boot capacity (compared to sedans) and the Ritz has a bigger boot and is a bigger car overall. Maybe you were able to fit a violin/guitar in the i10, but since when is guitar-storage used as a param to gauge boot-capacity?
Whoa, what's up, supremebaleno
? First, you take my comments out of context, then you turn sarcastic and finally, you say: "No offense". If you want to be offensive, please be so. And be honest about it, especially you are senior enough on this forum to know that.
And when did I say that "guitar-storage (is) used as a param to gauge boot-capacity?". Please re-check my post in its proper context. And while you are checking my posts, please check my following posts, where I HAVE admitted that the Ritz is an "excellent" car: #607:
Both are excellent cars and I would gladly recommend them any day. #613:
In my opinion, the Ritz is a much better car than the 6,000 monthly sales would suggest. #627:
"...(if) the Ritz VXI is now on par with the I10 Magna...I must admit that the Ritz VXI makes it a better proposition...These two cars are really good and both have their strong points to lure a potential customer." #647:
"In my opinion, it isn't easy when the Ritz is compared with the I10, especially since both are excellent cars with different features appealing to different sets of potential customers...many have acclaimed the K-series engine...both cars are winners in their own right and will serve you well over the years...But yes, GTO did praise the ride quality of the Ritz."
Let me recall that my interest in this thread was largely precipitated by post #645
, as well as to some extent, post#597
. Wherever I have spoken highly about the I10 I have directly or indirectly indicated that it is MY OPINION.

This was clearly not my intention to do so, but as said earlier, my post was largely in reaction to the post by cediafan
. If it has ruffled some feathers on this thread, I apologise. I did not mean to divert attention from the Ritz to the I10 on this Ritz thread. Since it is obviously bothering some, my inputs on the I10 and its comparison with the Ritz on this specific thread will stop here and now.
For those who are happy with the Ritz, good for you.
