Ignis a bit thirsty

Asked by Betty Griggs

WE LIKE our 2004 Suzuki Ignis, but fuel consumption is higher than we expected. It is a little better now, but we were getting about 10L/100 km. Suzuki claims it should be 9.5 for a five-door automatic. What do you think?

FUEL consumption depends on many things, the way you drive, the type of traffic you drive in, the pressures of the tyres. So car companies use a standard test to measure fuel consumption. That way they can compare one model with the next, one make with another. It doesn't necessarily relate to real-world fuel consumption, though I would expect it will be reasonably close. If Suzuki is claiming 9.5L/100km, your 10L/100km is close enough to say you don't really have a complaint.
