Real world fuel efficiency of the Kia Carens 1.5 NA & 1.4 turbo petrol

The moment you floor the pedal and get some fun out of the motor by keeping the rpm above 2500, get ready to see single digit fuel efficiency.

These are the figures for 1.4 petrol Prestige Plus manual covered close to 5k kms.

100% city with heavy traffic and AC set at 23.5 and short trips of 2-5 kms ~ 9-10 kmpl.

Here’s what BHPian peudo_coder had to say on the matter:

Mileage of 1.5 NA petrol:

I have driven 4k till now, half if it highway. Overall average is 13 kmpl.

Highway driving was by a driver, who crossed 100. So car gives around 15 kmpl. When I drive, I stay below 90, and get 18+.

In city, I get 12-13 if I do a 10km+ drive. But I need to do a lot of short drives (2-4km). So that reduces the mileage I get.
