    Maruti Suzuki had unveiled the Fronx coupe SUV at Auto Expo 2023 in January, and while the brand had shared several details about the car then, its fuel efficiency figures were not announced. However, at the Fronx media drive, the carmaker officially revealed the SUV coupe's fuel economy figures. 

    1. Fronx 1.2 petrol MT does 21.79kpl
    2. Fronx 1.0 turbo petrol MT does 21.5kpl
    3. Fronx 1.0 turbo petrol AT does 20.01 kpl

    Maruti Fronx: how fuel efficient is it?

    Maruti will retail the Fronx with two engine options. We first look at the 1.2-litre naturally aspirated DualJet petrol engine, which is good for 90hp and 113Nm. Gearbox choices include a 5-speed manual and a 5-speed AMT automatic. The 1.2 NA engine is offered on the first three trims – Sigma, Delta and Delta+. The manual gearbox is standard on all three trims, while the AMT gearbox can be had on the Delta and Delta+ trims.

    The Fronx with the 1.2-litre naturally aspirated petrol engine delivers 21.79kpl for the manual variant and 22.89kpl for the AMT. 

    The second engine option on the Fronx is the 1.0-litre turbo-petrol Boosterjet unit that delivers 100hp and 147.6Nm. This engine will be offered on the Delta+, Zeta and Alpha trims, and while the manual gearbox is standard on all trims, a 6-speed torque converter automatic gearbox is available on the top-spec Zeta and Alpha trims.

    With the more powerful engine, the Fronx does 21.5kpl with the manual gearbox and 20.01kpl with the automatic.

    Maruti Fronx SUV coupe: launch details

    The Fronx will go on sale in the coming weeks and will be positioned as a premium compact SUV. Like the Baleno, it will be retailed via the Nexa outlets. After its launch, it will take on high-riding hatchbacks and compact SUVs like the Citroen C3, Tata Punch, Nissan Magnite and Renault Kiger.

    Fronx will be forgotten if customers made to wait any longer. There has been a flurry of launches that Auto Expo reveal feels like a distant and hazy memory and sharing the nose with the Brezza and Grand Vitara is not in it's favor.
