DZire delivers 49 kmpl in 'Dzirable Mileage Rally'

India’s leading car manufacturer Maruti Suzuki celebrated the fifth anniversary of its entry level sedan Swift Dzire with its customers across the country. Close to 2000 customers with their families took part in the 'Dzirable Mileage Rally' that was organized on April 28, 2013.

The Dzirable Mileage Rally celebrations were held over the weekend in 31 cities across the country.
The national average for the petrol Maruti Suzuki Dzire was 27.7kmpl and for the diesel version was 31.4 kmpl. The highest mileage reported in New Delhi were 49 kmpl and 44.6 kmpl in diesel and petrol categories respectively. (These figures are from the source: Sulekha).

How did they manage to get 49 kmpl?

However, if you really want to achieve those kind of mileage figures, you need to consciously drive using hypermiling techniques and you would be quite uncomfortable too at most times.

Hypermiling calls for not using the AC. Windows need to be rolled up. You need to keep the car as light as possible. You probably need to over-inflate your tyres a bit too to reduce rolling resistance.
