Have been consistently getting a fuel efficiency of around 19 – 20 km/l over the last few months.
BHPian StarVector recently shared this with other enthusiasts.
I have covered over 11K kms on my MX Diesel XUV 700 including a 2000 km round trip on the Pune-Mumbai-Mount Abu-Nathdwara route. Thought of sharing my experience over the last six months.
The car is a pleasure to drive, I wish you could see the grin on my face every time I take the car out for a spin. The sheer & brute power available on tap is more than enough for all of my driving needs. More on this later.
Firstly, the good things
The not-so-good things.
Niggles faced so far
Service Experience & Support from M&M
I have got my Car serviced by Sahyadri Motors, Wakad (Pune) and Salasar Auto, Thane. The experience has been good at both places. I had complained regarding the suspension noise at both locations however the correction (read retorquing) done by technicians at Salasar Auto was much better. They did a better job of tuning the suspension response. I am yet to get the front lower control arm replaced for my car. Planning to do that soon.
One more issue that the owners of MX variants are facing is the lack of promised Android Auto feature. It has been more than a year since the car was launched but still, there is no sign of the Android Auto feature availability. M&M is not even providing a committed date or deadline for when this feature will be available. Without the Android Auto feature, the infotainment screen is pretty much useless.
Now coming to the mileage figures I have achieved. I am a very sedate driver and drive with a light foot. About 70% of my travel is on highways only. As per the tank-to-tank method, overall, as of now I have achieved an average of 18 km/l (all fill-ups combined), with the best of 22.2 km/l I got on my trip to Mount Abu. I have been consistently getting 19-20 km/l for the last few months.
