Bought this car after extensive search and watching YouTube reviews. Also I had a test drive before entering into a booking. Few days after purchase I traveled moderately on heavy traffic roads as well as on highways.
An accurate measure of fuel consumption was not possible as I have driven only few hundred kms. Overall I feel that the K15C machine is highly efficient than any other type used in Maruti vehicles . Being a heavy vehicle with large sized body the engine performance is remarkable. The torque converter type automatic transmission is very smooth in providing hassle free driving . However in low gear shifts it seems that the machine is not exactly synchronizing with the load. Maruti had engineered its dynamics to save fuel, no doubt, compromising certain comforts of the travelers. But those who love Maruti will certainly appreciate it.
Until now my average fuel consumption is 14.5 km/l, and the maximum recorded was 21.87km/l on the highway side.
Mileage depends on many factors such as road condition, load, external temperature, tyre pressure and the nature of driving. For a careful driver who knows something about the engine it is an excellent instrument for better service.
The interior space is sufficiently good for six passengers with less luggage. I have really enjoyed sitting in the third row seat . No body roll no jerks. Thanks for the design.
