Swift Dzire, beauty with low mileage
Pros : looks good
Cons : Very low mileage
Hello!! I am one of the proud owners of Swift Dzire ZXI. It has been more than a year since, I have purchased this car. To get my hands over this sedan, I had to wait for more than three months. I did not know that after a long wait I am going to get a car which is not a good choice for fuel efficient car buyers. Earlier, I had Hyundai i10 that used to give mileage of 18 km/l. And now, I own a Swift Dzire ZXI that gives mileage of just 11 km/l. I think that even a luxury saloon has better fuel efficiency that this car.
I have been regular in getting my car serviced and I have never skipped any service of my car, but still the mileage is just the same, around 11 – 12 km/l. If this is going to continue, I might think of selling my car and buying some other fuel efficient car like Toyota Etios or Hyundai Verna Fluidic diesel.
I have also approached dealership in regards to this problem, but they blame my driving for this. What a silly reason, I am driving for more than 5 years and still they say that I use acceleration in excess. I have also asked the Maruti personnel to drive my car, but he isn’t ready to take this challenge. This means that he too agrees that this car really has poor fuel economy.
The only thing which makes this car adorable is the intelligently built exteriors that make this car stand apart from the crowd. But, bottom-line is “Its beauty might be expensive due to very low mileage”.
