Maruti Suzuki Fronx Turbo manual real-world mileage tested

The Maruti Suzuki Fronx brings back memories of the Baleno RS with a Boosterjet engine. We tested both and, evaluating the latest crossover, we ascertain that the Fronx Turbo is good on drivability. However, is it also impressive in terms of real-world mileage? We tested its fuel economy as well and here is how the vehicle performed.

Maruti Fronx Boosterjet Powertrain and claimed mileage

We are not talking about the standard 1.2-litre VVT twin-jet petrol engine, but the 1.0-litre Turbo Boosterjet petrol engine. It is more powerful with 99 HP and 147 Nm of torque. It comes mated with either a six-speed automatic transmission or a five-speed manual that we are sampling here. The claimed mileage remains the same for all variants at 21.5kmpl.

Maruti Fronx Turbo City Mileage

The Maruti Fronx has a good power-to-weight ratio and being lightweight certainly helps its efficiency. It traveled a distance of 78.4 on the city route and consumed 5.5 liters of petrol. This indicates a real-world city mileage of 14.3 km/h, which is good and close to the tachometer-indicated efficiency of 15.2 km/h. It is worth noting that there is an automatic fuel cut-off function available in the car. This automatically stops the engine at a traffic light signal when in neutral. This might not directly help in enhancing fuel efficiency, but surely helps reduce fuel consumption.

Highway mileage of the Maruti Fronx Boosterjet

On the highway, the Fronx stayed in a higher gear and lower revs, thus cruising comfortably. For a distance of 80.4 kilometers, it took up 4.2 liters of fuel, hinting at a highway mileage of 19.1kmpl. The instrument cluster displayed 21.6kmpl at the end of this test. Overall, a combined real-world mileage of 15.5kmpl with the 37 litre tank gives it a driving range of close to 572 km, which is satisfactory for a crossover like this.
