Mileage "Kitna deti hai",a Maruti tagline,with tagline,"India is obsessed with mileage",is a thing where Maruti does not disappoint any body,which i believe is true. Even though Engine being 1.4 liter it does not disturb mileage figures,it gave me 15 kmpl (tankfull) sometimes in a trip with 8 passengers and 100% AC.
But that too depends on how you drive,here is how i drive.
Gear shift:2000-3000 RPM
Best FE:15 kmpl with AC
•Sedate and Economy:
Gear Shift:1500-2000 RPM
Best FE:<12 kmpl
This car as got enough power and for me,it does not require to down shift again and again.If you try to push her hard and rev her hard definitely it would gulp down your fuel much faster than you expect, Trust me i have tried it
,so be cool. Log Of Mileage:(Approx Figures)
