Real world fuel efficiency of the Tata Nexon petrol AT

So far, the car has been topped up 4 times using XP95 fuel from Indian Oil, and has been giving mileage between 10.5 to 11.2 in city in economy mode.

BHPian FlankerH recently shared this with other enthusiasts.

I had taken delivery of a Nexon XZA+ Petrol on 19th June and since then covered 1600 KMS to date, so far all good and nothing to talk about as such.

The only thing for which I am here is, wanted to apprise forum about the excellent mileage I was able to extract recently on a highway trip. It was a short trip from Noida to Vrindavan and back on a fine Saturday noon with mild drizzles. Route involved travelling through Noida - Agra express which mostly remain empty and one can easily cruise in triple digit speeds all the time.

I managed to use cruise control for almost 70% of the trip duration, where speed was varying between 85-95 as per requirement, only used steering controls to toggle speed here.

Now here comes the surprise when I switched to trip section and saw efficiency figures which was at 20.6 (missed capturing). Later managed a click when it got slightly reduced.

Someone pointed in other post that MID shows 1.6 KMPL higher then actual figures calculated using tank full method, even by that logic I think 19+ KMPL is too good for a car of this weight and heft. Round trip distance came at 296 KMS and mileage stood at 16.3 (as per MID).

So far, the car has been topped up 4 times using XP95 fuel from Indian Oil and has been giving mileage between 10.5 to 11.2 in city (MID was showing higher figures) when driven in economy mode.
