Based upon our real-world tests, heres a take a look at the Maruti Suzuki Grand Vitara strong hybrids fuel efficiency figures.Published On Oct 01, 2022 11:32:00 AMMaruti Suzukis Creta rival is lastly here in the shape of the Grand Vitara and its distinct selling proposal is its strong-hybrid powertrain, with a heading fuel performance figure of 27.97 kpl rated by ARAI. While it is also readily available with a mild-hybrid engine, priced from Rs 10.45 lakh-16.89 lakh, the focus of this text is the real-world fuel efficiency of the Grand Vitara strong hybrid, which is priced from Rs 17.99 lakh-19.49 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi).1.5 litre, three cylinder fuel runs effective Atkinson Cycle0.76 kWh Lithium-ion battery powers electrical motorStrong hybrid powertrain makes 116hpIn our world tests, the Grand Vitara strong hybrid attained a shocking 23.77 kpl in the city, which is the greatest among all the cars and trucks we have tested to date, across all segments. Its highway efficiency was a bit lesser, at 20.39 kpl, which is still really excellent compared to its rivals.What is the real life fuel effectiveness of the Maruti Suzuki Grand Vitara strong hybrid?The Grand Vitaras strong hybrid powertrain can run in pure electrical mode (as long as the functional conditions are met, and the battery has appropriate charge). Maruti (and Toyota) declare that it is possible to drive 50-60 percent of a city commute completely EV mode, and during our tests, we did see the engine running primarily in EV mode throughout our city loop, which explains the staggering city efficiency.Even when the fuel engine begins to either supply extra pulling power (on more aggressive accelerator inputs) or to recharge the diminished battery, it is quite efficient. Thats since this three-cylinder engine runs a more effective Atkinson cycle, where the consumption camshaft delays the closing of the valves on the compression stroke, resulting in a lower air-fuel mixture being burned inside, hence reducing fuel consumption.At highway speeds, the gas engine is active a lot regularly than in the city, and the vehicle just periodically changes to EV mode at travelling speeds, hence taking in more fuel than in the city.Autocar Indias fuel effectiveness testingBefore our real-world fuel effectiveness test, we fill the tanks of our test vehicles to the brim and maintain tire pressures based on the producers suggestion. These cars and trucks are driven in set city and highway loops, and we keep certain average speeds. Throughout our test, there is only one individual in each vehicle, running the air con and other electricals like the audio system, wipers and signs when needed, just like how a routine user would. Periodic driver swaps further neutralise variations in chauffeur patterns. At the end of each cycle, we determine effectiveness by filling them up to the brim again.Also see: Maruti Suzuki Grand Vitara evaluation: Cretas most major competing yet2022 Maruti Suzuki Grand Vitara video reviewCopyright (c) Autocar India.
