    Hi I have driven new XLi for 900 kms and it gave me 12.8km/litres or can say 13km/lit. The ride is nice and you feel as if driving a powerful engine. Much better than previous new XEs which I have driven. I think, the fuel average would further improve as the engine is slightly over RPM currently

    i agree with F1....the consumption is abt 12-13km/ltr.....and on hiways its even better...the drive is smooth.......and yes the road grip is not all that great....the ride becomes a bit uncomfortable above 100 kmph

    tell me one thing F1...does SE SALOON has the same road grip as XLi's

    Se saloon may has a slight lesser grip than a vti but 2D saloon is best road gripper due to its extra mass; as it has a 2L diesel engine which makes it much heavier than any other local petrol car. Also greater torque of diesel engine enhances the road grip

    SE Saloon can give u best ever road grip.All u have to do is to use alloy rims & 195-65-15 yokohama tyres.This is my personal experience.

    HI friends the road grip issue of XLi can be resolved by replacing stock General tyres with Dunlop or Yokohama tyres. The first thing I did after getting car out of showroom was to replace the tyres. I installed Yokohama ASPEC A-300 tyres which are extremely noiseless and give an excellent grip. One of my friend who had an accident on his new Baleno advised me to replace General tyres asap because it was the same reason for his accident. He applied brakes and the car rammed into a jeep in front despite a pretty safe distance.

    that wasn't becoz of tyres....

    it was becoz of thakeleeeee......

    for XLi yeah tyres do matter as it make it skids after getting the pedal pressed for few seconds.

    this problem is it even in SE SALOON AUTO.

    ROAD GRIP ALSO MATTERS ON TYRES U R RIGHT

    when it comes to road grip, ofcourse ur tyres r the 1st thing to be considered. General tyres r the enemies of ur life. I myself used the general tyres with my 2D saloon. They really demonstrate a poor quality. Now i have replaced them with Bridgestone and the difference is there.
