My Alza Fuel Consumption inches higher from 12.3km/l to 12.7km/l. I have perform 5k service since and the last pump was at 6194km. Looking at the moving average chart, the average of the last 4 pump were 13.8km/l. I see this as a significant improvement from the day I pick up the car, which performs at only 10.9km/l. Though it is still far from what Toyota claim at 15.6km/l, but it is close to my previous Honda City that performs at 14.7km/l. As the Alza Fuel Consumption efficiency is still improving and does not seam to be leveling off, I am hopeful that I will achieve my previous Honda City performance.
One month in after collecting the car, I have traveled more than 3500km. I have used Shell VPower 97 during the first few pump and then changed to Caltex 95 for 2 pumps and Shell 95 after that till today. The average fuel consumption firmly stands at 12.3km/l, still far from Toyota 15.6km/l claim.
The chart above suggest the fuel consumption have been improving and I plot a moving average chart below averaging 4 datapoint. Doing this, the uptrend can be clearly seen. This is a good indication that the car fuel consumption efficiency are improving and maybe, just maybe we can hit what Toyota claim.
1 week in, I have driven my Alza over 600km and have filled the tank 3 times. When I got my Alza, the tank was empty and I have been filling it with Shell Vpower (Ron 97) RM50 for the last three times. The first tank manage to bring me up to 260km and the second tank improves significantly to 301km. The chart above shows the km/l of which the second tank improves from 10.9km/l to 12.6km/l. My first 1000km service is due and I am expecting a performance improvement after the service. According to Toyota, the Passo Sette has a fuel consumption performance of 15.6km/l, which is far from what my Alza is performing now.
The more I drive the car, the more I like the drivability of the car. Its now a little over a week and my impression on the car drivability and performance have changed significantly. My previous car was Honda City 2006 and comparing MPV to a compact, the compact usually outperforms the MPV all the time. In this case, the Alza looks like a MPV, but performs rather close to a compact. The torque at traffic light sometimes scares me till I have to lift off the gas paddle to avoid the car hitting the front BMW. It seams to be performing much better in this aspect than my 2006 Honda City. But the lacking part is the transmission, my 2006 Honda City has CVT which makes the gear change a silk smooth transition, but the Alza was a little Jerky.
My Alza is improving on the fuel consumption the more I drive and I am growing to enjoy this small MPV. I going on a road trip this weekend, and I can’t wait to zoom along the north south highway.
According to Toyota Passo Sette promotional video, the car’s fuel consumption is 15.6km/l. This is certainly the figure to beat. My previous 2006 Honda City Vtec was only performing at 14.7km/l and this is already way better than all my peers who have been driving at around 13.xkm/l for the same car or iDSI version. From the My Alza Forum, I find that some people can actually hit 15km/l. Not sure if they are driving the auto version or manual version, definitely, what Toyota claim for Sette is not something that is not achievable. Lets see the following months how my Alza performs.
