I have recently bought a new City Automatic Model 2016 assuming it will give better mileage than my previous Suzuki Swift. After driving 1000 plus km and noting down consecutive 4 tank full to tank full readings, I am in a state of utter disbelief and shock. I am getting a consistent mileage between 6.9km /l to 7.2 km /l with full time AC in city driving mostly along Canal, Johar town and Faisal Town. Similar usage gave 9.5 km /l from my Suzuki Swift 1300 cc M/T (2012 model). I also have Mitsubishi Lancer M/T 2006 model giving 8.5 km /l with similar usage pattern. Before I raise HELL with the company and demand engine replacement under warranty, I need to be sure that this is exceptionally low and other owners are getting noticeably better mileage. I am at my wit's end and even contemplating selling the car. Seems like I am driving a Land Cruiser. :S
I need a professional advice backed by verifiable data. Please no generalized figures. And I do realize that there is about 10% difference between Auto and Manual Transmission.
Desperately waiting for reply.
