Maruti Frontex Turbo Manual Real World Mileage Tested

 

  • The Fronx BoosterJet is more powerful than the standard version
  • Fastest crossover to cross one lakh sales milestone

The Maruti Suzuki Fronx brings back memories of the Baleno RS with the BoosterJet engine. We have tested both and from our evaluation of the latest crossover, we are sure that the front end turbo is good in terms of driveability. However, is it also impressive in terms of real-world mileage? We also tested its fuel economy and here’s how the vehicle performed.

Maruti Franks Boosterjet powertrain and claimed mileage

We are not talking about the standard 1.2-litre DualJet dual-VVT petrol but the 1.0-litre Turbo BoosterJet petrol. It is more powerful with 99bhp and 147Nm torque. It comes with either a six-speed automatic or a five-speed manual which is the one we’re sampling here. The claimed mileage is the same for all variants at 21.5kmpl.

City Mileage of Maruti Fronx Turbo

The Fronx has a good power-to-weight ratio and being lightweight definitely helps its efficiency. It traveled 78.4 km on an urban route and consumed 5.5 liters of petrol. It indicates a real-world city mileage of 14.3 kmpl, which is good and close to the tachometer-indicated efficiency of 15.2 kmpl. It is worth noting that automatic fuel start-stop feature is available in the car. It automatically stops the engine at a traffic signal when in neutral. It may not directly help in increasing fuel efficiency, but definitely helps in reducing fuel consumption.
