There were just ~200Kms on ODO before the trip. Its improving; yesterday on the trip to "zameen" it gave 11+Km/L; most of it was single road/under 60Km/h drive.
The fuel average depends largely on how/where you drive; Altis has smaller displacement than Civic; better fuel consumption at the cost of less fun obviously :-#
Altis will give you better fuel consumption even with its 300cc bigger displacement. Earlier we had SE Saloon; that too used to give better average than XLis/GLis. In my opinion; the more cost of Altis is completely justified; from bigger displacement to SRS; from rims to Sat Nav; even from the wooden panels to chrome on doors....still I guess 1.3L GLi M/T will have less depreciation :-#
