    Honda’s claim of 25.8kpl for the i-DTEC engine is rated on the Indian Driving Cycle test. The good news is this engine still performs admirably in real-world conditions. Our tests returned 15.2kpl in urban conditions and 20.8kpl out on the highway, which is way ahead of its rivals. Honda says this engine’s efficiency belies its cubic capacity thanks to an ultra-low friction design, lightweight internals and a special ultra-low-viscosity engine oil developed specially for it.

    The petrols too return respectable figures. We saw overall figures of 14.75kpl and 13.8kpl for the manual and automatic versions, respectively. The only downside is the small 35-litre tank which limits its range between fill-ups.
