Figo 1.4 is proved performer in fuel economy. It is nowhere less performer on this front when compared with any other cars in this category. Where Figo scores more after matching on this criteria, is the overall package.
As far as my Figo 1.2 (Petrol) is concerned, I am satisfied owner with its performance and FE.
While driving here in Pune City, I compulsorily have to drive in congestion and in narrow lanes before reaching to main traffic. There too, I have to face heavy traffic and frequent signals. I rarely can manage to drive in 4th gear for more than half a minute! My almost all drives are short, between 2km to 4km in one go! In this situation Figo returns around 11.5 (+/- 1)kmpl.
On other hand while on outings, most of the travel through Ghats in the Sahyadri Ranges I regularly achieve 14.5 (+/-1) kmpl. On plain, straight highway roads I had easily managed to achieve 15kmpl and above, even when not driven for getting the good economy figures. But here, for highway drive, Figo 1.4 (Diesel) achieved above 20kmpl, when tested side by side!
All drives with 90% AC on!
All economy figures I mentioned here are concluded from the log maintained for over 8000kms from the delivery day!
I have checked with cars from other manufacturers too (with same engine specifications) and almost all achieves similar FE on this driving conditions!
@koz183, Hope this post will help in clearing doubts in your mind.
