After 2 to 3 services you may get increased mileage like 11 to 13KM, initially all cars prior to 5000km will give less mileage.

For your usage Petrol car makes good choise, for diesel you need to spend atleat 75,000 more.

I totally disagree with Vintoth ...My Ritz is giving more than 13 km since I have purchased it in Bangalore city limit.
Thats true that initially till 3k km it gives less mileage but this much less ...there is something problem.

yeah ford is expensive to run but good to ride and its has high maintenance.

Answer by RAVI 09 September 2010

For 800-900km per month, go for petrol cars like A-star, Ritz, Beat, Micra or Polo. Do not buy Figo. My Figo diesel is giving me just about 12-14 kmpl. I'm not surprised to hear that petrol Figo gives only 10 kmpl!

I have been using Ford figo Diesel almost for 4 months with decent mileage of 14 to 16 in City and 23 to 25 Kmpl in highways.The performance is good @ hill stations also. I am not sure about petrol engine. From Chennai to Ooty via Erode the milage averages to 20 Kmpl which is very great performance.The driving comfort is great. The gear shift, power steering is very smooth. The clearance you get while driving in city traffic is awesome.
You will love driving the ford figo Diesel.

Go for A-star. I was also planning to buy figo bt bought A-star coz figo was on waiting. now I m very happy. A-star gave me a mileage of 16 even before first service. now its giving me 17-18 in city with AC.
