First Timer- Please be gentle

Post by NeilSA » Wed Jul 04, 2018 4:47 pm

Hi

Having traded my Kia for a CX3 2.0 manual I find the engine noise coming into the cabin quite loud.
It sounds like a diesel. Is this normal?

What sort of fuel consumption should I expect L/100km.

I do about 1000km per week. :D :D

Cold engine is high reving and loud for quick warm-up forabout 12 seconds! Normal!

Compression ratio is similar to a diesel so it might sound slightly noisier than a standard petrol engine. You can expect around 5l/100km.

Oh sorry.

I have 2018
2.0l
manual.
Current consumption is around 7.5l/100km. Hopefully will decrease with time.

It should improve, but I don't know how the fuel compares with UK fuel. Also it depends on the size of the boots you wear and whether you are driving in traffic.

After 2.5 weeks I'm at about 7.0l/100 in an auto. Mixed city and freeway driving.
