@sahilm , I had posted my first hand experience a few days back on Pg 67 post 937 . Just copying it down again for your reference . But as nick says the pulling power is great , the torque really hits you with the crazy pulling force that nick mentions even in an automatic which has a Sports Mode which gives you some more fun when you are in the mood for a little spirited driving . And my guess is that the manual will also be great fun without burning a hole in your pocket . And its pretty close to being Silent !!
"Hi Guys , I Did a Mumbai Khandala 250km Run yesterday on my 1.6 Crdi Automatic . Have completed 1200km so far . The Fuel Efficiency was as follows for the past few days :
Mumbai - Khandala 10% city and 90% 250km Expressway run : Max mileage 16.5
Mumbai - Thane 60% city and 40% highway 60km run : Max mileage 12.7
Mumbai City Stuck in City traffic Jam bumper to bumper for 1hr30min 50km: Max mileage 10.2
Guess for an 1.6 Diesel Automatic this seems to be a Fair Tradeoff between comfort and FE . On a 1.6 Manual Diesel my guess is the FE will improve by 15% on the above figures ."
