Came back from the drive yesterday. Chennai - Madurai - Tuticorin - Tirunelveli - Madurai - Chennai. A total of 1590 kms of which 1450 kms was Highway and 140 kms city driving.
Total Fuel Consumed: 98 Litres
Average Mileage: 16.2 km/L
5 People and Fully loaded trunk
Tyre Pressure: 32psi on all tyres.
Average speed: 90 - 100 km/hr
Experienced the soft suspension when driving at high speed and with full load. The car actually tends to through the rear seaters vertically at bumps and speed above 80km/hr. It doesnt stop there - the car does not actually stop moving vertically once the bump is crossed. It jerks vertically 3 or 4 times more before coming to a flat drive.
The pick up is awesome. It challeneges almost all cars on the highway - be it the Pajeros or Scorpios. Great mileage as well and the braking is spot on!
The seats were pretty comfortable as well. We did 1590 kms in 3 days with 5 passengers and still didnt fell all that tired and needless to say, I was the lone driver and I enjoyed driving my machine
Went zig zag on most toll gate speed breaker and didnt bottom out on any.
All I can say is, I just love my car!!!
