7.5 Km Per L Xtrail 2015 4x4 ?

Question

Is this normal ? Heard it does like 11 Km Per L. This was shown on average fuel consumption meter display. Didnt go on long distances though. Its a hybrid and still only 325 km done.

Why not sell it and buy a diesel sprangly used Audi A4 or a BMW F10? Many for sale with plenty of warrenty left.

The reason why i brought the x-trail is because of its height ... same goes to every other person who brought it ... i have the prius 2016 its a car and it serves me well till i drive it in my home town bambalapitiya ... i take it to matara my moms home town via highway and no problem using it there however what if i turn from end of highway to godagama area or if i use it where my father lives kottawa (turn right from the junction) i face so many difficulties .. roads are not in shape which is why i needed the xtrail, and my 2016 prius and my fathers 2016 axio gives me damn bad backpains after driving for an hour or so ... and the ground clearence in those vehicles ? terrible ! ...

The petrol xtrail will do worse than that no experience on newer models but the nt30 only did 5-6kmpl

If you need a economical suv go for a diesel.

A santafe or sorrento slightly use one is in that range

Exacty u shuld go fr a diesel in future but apparently sorento does 8-9kmpl in city out station 11-12kmpl so the same i guess

So ur facing the same situation as mine? Low on fuel economy? So u drive in city limits ?

Well..you really can't buy a SUV or crossovers in the likes of X-Trails and RAV4s expecting fuel economy.The Hybrids....even in Japan, I have come across people who say that the Hybrid X-Trail does 10-11. This is in Japan so I would imagine in SL it would be a bit less (perhaps the range you talk about ? and hopefully ones the engine breaks in and the first service done it will get a bit better). My RAV4 2.4L petrol got 8-9 in Japan and now in SL get 5-6 in city driving (the CR-V of the same era got more towards the 6 mark but still the same range). Like someone else had mentioned if you buy a X Trail petrol variant the fuel consumption may be less. Only time I got 7-8 on my petrol RAV4 in SL was the month I mixed it with frequent highway driving or the few months I left to work at 9.30am and came back home by 4.00 pm.

Perhaps you should have gotten something like a Vezel if you wanted high ground clearance AND fuel economy (but if you had this thread probably would have een about the thing being under powered or something...)?

Father owned a RE4 and a RD5 and company and close friends had the same...on average they all did about 6ish. Although at the time a lot of people claimed the CR-V did 7-8. Like I said..the only time we got 7-8 on either the CR-V or the RAV4 was when our schedules were such that we were able to miss the peak Battaramulla - Colombo traffic and was more towards its trail-end. But then again I guess travel and ride patterns could account for the small variations....

Granted the...CR-V (RE4) did a bit better than the RAV4 (ACA31)...on average both were 6ish but both my father and I were very harsh with the CR-V :D 

Both got 12-14 on outstation runs though (on a tank)

No idea about the RM series though.

As to why spend on a Hybrid variant...well the same reason 95% of people but hybrids...purchase price is a bit lower than the pure gasoline variants (well atleast that used to be the case...no idea what it is now...)

Can you tell me how much will the 2015/16 crv will cost you? Does it comes in 2wd and 4wd? Or just 4wd only? Let me know in details

How sure are you of the fuel which actually went in the tank Vs the amount shown in the meter?  :wacko:

fill up from another fuel station .

RD, RE, and RM are the last three generations of the CR-V. RD4-7? came in the early to mid 2000s...then it was replaced by the RE and then the RE was replaced by the current model the RM. So Kush has the latest model and Honda claims that the RM is more fuel efficient than its previous models....so although I got my figures Kush could very well be getting better figures than the previous models.

All CR-Vs come in 2WD and 4WD form....

after months of using my x-trail i sold it out ... everybody does these days , yep ... so what i have figured out so far about the new x trail from 2015 to 2017 (almost everythings exactly the same) , fuel figures on highway under 80 km/h will do 16 kmpl day time under hot weather ... and in evenings and night it will do 18 kmpl under 100 + kmph it will do 14 kmpl or way lower than that ... then on a very hot day in traffic it will do 7 - 8 kmpl this will get worse when u keep waiting on bumper to bumper traffic , on light traffic in evening it will reach 9 - 10 kmpl sometimes , sun roof and moon roof aint no match for sri lankan weather on day time will give too much heat and will waste ur fuel for air condition ... i did original 3m tint on moon roof and wind screen saved a drop or two of fuel ... fuel figures are same on either 2 wheel or 4 wheel models normal or mod premier , i love the chasis control handling and ground clearence but when it comes to a hybrid / fuel figures and comfort this vehicle is a big failure ... and regenerative breaking im still thinking if its available cuz i dont see any meter for it like in a honda fit or vezel ... and the fuel figures shown here i have picked from the dash board , on real life figures those way way lower means 8 kmpl most of the time for a 4x4 model ... moved to a phev outlander feels much better now ...

WTF!!!
This is the first time i'm hearing an x-trail (or any SUV) driver comparing fuel figures with and without the aircon on. If you loose sleep over fuel wastage for having the aircon on! Seriously!??!?! If anything this is sh!t you read on a Alto group. 

That being said I have a perfect solution for you!!!
Drive your Prius along the highway to Matara; soon after you get off the highway pull over look at your fuel consumption meter and have your mini orgasm. Then drive straight to the nearest food city. Park your car there and take a three-wheeler to your mother's house in Godagama. Repeat process in reverse when heading back home. 

 

You're welcome!

In a few words - dont go x trail cuz fuel economy is shit ... this is a mid type suv and 4x4 does only 8 most of the times when ur pusing over 80 ... if so my complain is why it came as a hybrid , im not lying ask most of the x trail users and check on the web you can see how many x trails are for sale ... ask them kindly why they are selling ...

I've been told I have the mental age of 8.

There is nothing to fight about dude. Just string of illogical decisions you've been making that I (and probably others too) find hilarious...

But you said you have a prius that does well in city traffic! Why drive the xtrail then? You could have bought an older X-trail for 1/3 the price, and used that for your matara trips. And I bet it would depreciate WAY less than the new x-trail...

And Imagine, if you put the 6.0 million you saved in a FD at a 10% interest , the 600,000 interest would have paid for your whole' year's fuel spendings and not to mention the savings on your insurance premium every year! :)

It's called being penny-wise-pound-foolish....

The logic still applies unless you spend over 600,000 on fuel every year (50,000 a month)

35,000km in 6 months? Are you saying you travel about 200km a day? is this a rental car?

If you know you travel that much, was it wise to choose something that big and heavy? Goes back to my very first solution of taking a threewheeler for the exceptional case where your prius can't make it.

ohh well; i dont think this is something wrong with the vehicle. It's about the vehicle being the wrong choice for the type of usage  :)
