Before we go any further and bring you all the details related to the mileage of Maruti XL6, make sure you are a member of our exclusive 91Wheels Telegram group where we bring you all the recent updates related to the Indian Automotive Industry.
Sharing under the hood details first then the XL6 gets a 1.5-litre, naturally aspirated, four-cylinder BS6 petrol engine. This unit churns out 103 bhp with a peak torque of 138 Nm and gets mated to a 5-speed manual gearbox. You can also choose from the 4-speed torque converter gearbox which adds to the convenience factor.
Like before, we follow the old school method of tankful to tankful which shows the correct results. However, we have played with the autocut here. As you can see from the video, we filled the petrol till third autocut only and give you the correct info.
We follow the basic rule of resetting our tripmeter and the average fuel economy. Then we turn on the AC and set it to 22 degrees and we turn it ON for the whole journey to give an idea of how the average fuel economy sticks on the roads.
For the first 32 km we achieved an astonishing figure of 20,8 kmpl which is good for city run. This mileage run is a mix of both city and open roads but we keep 75% to city and the rest towards the open roads. We did this distance in 1 hour and 4 minutes.
Since the XL6 comes with a start/stop system, we saved 31 ml of fuel in this 32 km journey. The display also shows the total ideal time we stopped at that was 4 minutes and 14 seconds. This is generally great information for the typical owner.
As we churn out more kilometres, our economy significantly increased. Yes, at 63 km mark we achieved 21.6 kmpl and the reason for that because of our cruising on open roads. The average time for this km stood at 1 hour and 47 minutes. The car comes with an idle start/stop system and this helps in saving the fuel economy.
After completing the 110 km mark, the figure displayed 20.6 kmpl which is great in terms of city and open roads. The average time for this 112 km was three hours and 14 minutes which is good. We were driving the XL6 with a light right foot.
We did 156.6 km in this total journey and the total fuel consumed was 7.22 litres. This accounts an amazing 21.67 kmpl which is great when compared with the ARAI figures. According to the ARAI, the XL6 delivers 19 kmpl for the manual and we achieved more than that.
