DOES THE EXORA HAVE ENOUGH POWER? (Can go up Genting ah?)
WHAT IS THE FUEL CONSUMPTION?
Just refueled the Exora for the first time since taking delivery of the car. Filled up 50 liters after 493km. Approximately 10.5 l/100km or RM0.189 per km. Have been driving the car very gently as it is still during the first 1000km break in period and been trying to keep the revs below 3000 rpm for this period.
The biggest question in everyone's mind that is asked by everyone who has come to know that I have bought an Exora is whether the 1.6 liter Campro CPS has enough poke to push the Exora along. I have to say that after driving around for a week, I have been pleasantly surprised and found the power more than sufficient for the style of driving more suited to MPV's rather than if the Exora was a Evora (of the Lotus variety). Driven like a MPV, the power most definitely OK. The gearbox only shifting down another gear when going up a steep incline. Even so, it didn't really struggle up the hills that it encountered.
I am certain after being properly run in, the Campro CPS would loosen up nicely and gain some power in the process. Fuel economy should also come down a little.
Am awaiting the first experience with the Proton service center. Will report on that when the time comes...
