D-segment sedan usually 60L tank, B segment usually only 40L fuel tank. 60L divide 600km is about 10km per liter, 10km per liter is pretty bad if just highway drive I think
I fully realize the tank capacity is bigger, bro. But that is exactly my point. It is bigger because they wanted to hit that sweet spot of 600km per full tank. Had it been the same capacity as honda city, the range would be around 400 km only.
I had an even bigger car before, a 4x4 with 3.8L V6... Also roughly 550 - 600 km per full tank. This car had about 7 km/l (combo) and up to 9 km/l (highway only).
So I am talking purely out of my own experience.
Besides, did I not say the Avanza 1.3 managed to hit 600 km on a full tank, with some balance to go? Avanza is definitely a different segment to my Accord.
Btw, I think 10 km/l is very good if you're driving a 5.7L V8 car like the landcruiser. They normally drink a liter every 5, 6 km or three about. So it's relative.
Added from my own records:
Rented Tiida 1.8L - around 550 - 600 km per full tank (avg consumption: 13.057 km/l)
Owned 1996 Corona 1.6L - 550 to 700 km per full tank (avg consumption: 13.993 km/l)
Owned 2002 Sonata 2.4L - 400 to 600 km per full tank (worse car owned for city driving, mileage from absolute worse to best: 5.997 km/l to 12.565 km/l)
Second time edit
found 2 records for rented Alza: 12.865 - 15.584 km/l
condition: fully loaded with family and luggage, travel KL-JB and back, also some driving in town of KL & JB.
Don't really know the full tank mileage though, since the two samples would not represent real life scenario/condition.This post has been edited by abu.shofwan: Jun 11 2019, 08:37 PM
