The car's mileage may vary depending on the variant and the model you have purchased. However, Laura's fuel consumption range is from 13.9 km/litre to 20km/litre.
The total kerb weight of the car with all standard equipment and required fluids is 1465 kg, that too when its fuel tank is full, having the capacity of 55 litres.
The official crash test safety rating is given to this sturdy vehicle by testing agencies worldwide. Plus, it is featured with blind-spot detection that alerts the drivers of any sudden movement in case of negligence.
