We have now gotten used to the lower power output and have started to become accustomed to extracting the right amount of torque at the right places.
BHPian W.A.G.7 recently shared this with other enthusiasts.
The Altroz is performing well. The odometer stands at ~67xx kms as of today. Nothing much to report so far. A comprehensive update is still due, along with some beautiful pictures, but looks like it will be the year end till it happens.
Possible road trip towards the end of the year, but it’s a bit early to say. Last week, visited Satara and it behaved beautifully on the highway. Except for one or two steep places in the Khambatki ghat, wherein I had to mash the accelerator, the gearbox shifted well and it was in the power zone for most of the time. Come to think of it – we have now gotten used to the lower power output and have started to become accustomed to extracting the right amount of torque at the right places. Still a lot to learn though.
We did a trip to Satara last week and the car gave an average fuel efficiency of 20.3 kmpl on the highway as per the trip meter. A/C was switched on for about 30 mins max (~25% of the travel time) but not otherwise. I think this is quite a decent highway fuel efficiency. Real world fuel efficiency will be in the range of 11-13 kmpl for a combined driving cycle, we have now made peace with it!
A political rally at Medha, and the road was closed by the police, so we had to take a long detour through some beautiful internal roads. At quite a lot of places, there’s construction going on, so we learnt a lesson – if there mud kicked up, don’t use the wiper. Else the car ends up looking like this.
