We helped Suzuki break the liter x kg record of 2023 like never before

charity event suzuki liter x kg It is already a classic of all years. It is in its seventh edition and its operation is simple: try to reduce the consumption of your vehicles as much as possible. And it is that each liter saved becomes a kilo of basic needs for the Fundación Banco de Alimentos de Madrid. More recovery this year than before: 3.660 kg, And this is probably a bit cocky… but we managed to contribute more than anyone else.

under the control of A Vitara Strong HybridWith the Maximo stant (from Garage Hermético), we managed to reduce its allowed consumption to less than 5.8 3.8 L/100 km (34.5% lower), It’s not easy to replicate on a normal day, but in the 57.3km route around Madrid we tried to at least accelerate to our skin, trying not to brake unless absolutely necessary, all possible slipstreams Looking for (the Maximo has a crack at it) and trying to enter this hybrid SUV’s electric mode on every flat section.

This was not the only model we competed with. Other professional colleagues drove an S-Cross 1.4 mild hybrid. Fernando Carrion and Julián Corrales barely contributed to the cause, spending 4.1 l/100 km (30.5% less). All the participants did this because of all the manipulations—we had to change drivers in the middle of the stretch—we reduced the average consumption allowed.

It works in conjunction with a 102-horsepower 1.5-liter gasoline engine, which between them adds up to a combined total power of 116 hp. It is supported by an AGS automatic transmission (a manual transmission but electronically controlled by a pilot clutch).

The electric motor assists the combustion engine in acceleration (the two work together), and can also propel the vehicle with electrical energy stored in the battery with low throttle demands. When orography allows it, if you are careful with the right foot, in short.

lend a hand

In this edition we were invited to share the program on social networks. Every like has become 1 kg. and under the hashtag #kilosuzuki7 The kilo of food will be donated to the Madrid Food Bank Foundation.

Those who also add a comment naming another person will donate an additional kilo. At the end of the event, an additional 1,540 kg of food was collected.
