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


As soon as you step on the pedal and have fun with the motor by keeping the rpm above 2500, prepare to see single-digit fuel efficiency.

BHPian penny_3749 recently shared this with other enthusiasts.

These are the figures for the 1.4 gasoline Prestige Plus manual traveled nearly 5000 km.

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

100% city with light traffic and air conditioning set at 23.5 and short trips of 2-5 kms ~ 10-12 kmpl.

100% city with light traffic and air conditioning set at 23.5 and long trips of 10+ km ~ 11-13 kmpl.

100% highway with 6 people on board and air conditioning set at 22 speeds around 90 km/h ~ 18-19kmpl.

100% motorway with 6 people on board and air conditioning set at 22 speeds at more than 100 km/h ~ 15-17 kmpl

As soon as you step on the pedal and have fun with the engine by keeping the revs above 2500, prepare to see FE in the single digits.

Here is what BHPian NivasBaskaran should say about it:

All this data is displayed on the MID for 1.5NA gasoline.

Motorways: Cruising between 80 and 90, 17+KMPL. When cruising between 90 and 100, 16+KMPL. Load 3 adults.

City: 10 to 12 in normal traffic. Less than 10 on B2B traffic.

Here is what BHPian peudo_coder should say about it:

1.5 NA petrol mileage:

I’ve driven 4k so far, half if it’s the highway. The general average is 13 kmpl.

Driving on the highway was carried out by one driver, who crossed 100. So the car gives about 15 kmpl. When I drive I stay below 90 and get 18+.

In town I get 12-13 if I drive more than 10km. But I have to do a lot of short trips (2-4 km). So that reduces the mileage I get.
