Honda Civic (FE) RS Real World Fuel Consumption Test / YS Khong Driving
Hey guys and girls, amidst all the excitement of the new FE Civic, people must be wondering what kind of fuel consumption this new model will yield.
In the previous model, there was still the 1.8 litre naturally aspirated engine available, and those that wanted good fuel economy opted for this less powerful engine while those who wanted more power went for the 1.5 liter turbo engine.
Now the all-new Civic 2022 comes in three variants, but all of them are equipped with the 1.5 liter turbo engine, which boasts of 182 PS and 240Nm of torque. How will this new configuration engine perform in terms of fuel economy? Won’t the turbocharger consume more petrol?
We took part in a media drive organized by Honda Malaysia recently, which took us to Penang – since I have already checked out the power of the Civic RS on our favorite mountain, I decided to do a fuel consumption run instead.
Generally there are no cuts in the video, and you can see exactly what happens from the start to the finish of this 50 kilometer run, which took about 37 minutes, so even from here you can glean that we were driving the car at normal road speeds, following the local traffic conditions. The only thing we refrained from doing was harsh acceleration – this is exactly how close to 80 percent of our driving population drive their own cars.
The result we got is a direct result of the car, the weather conditions and also the road and traffic conditions. Done on a different road, and on another day, results may differ – and we based it on the speedometer, odometer and consumption meter using the standard instruments supplied with the car.
What you see is what you get.
