Recommended Speed to our view :-

Hatchback Car
Start with 1st gear always. Many people have habits of starting with 2nd gear, which leads to loss of acceleration and mileage too. Then Change gear
Around 12 - 15 Km - Shift to 2nd Gear
Around 25 Kmpl - 3rd Gear
Around 35 Km - Shift to 4th Gear
Around 45 - 50 Kmpl - Shift to 5th Gear, if clear traffic and Maintain speed of 60 Kmpl for Optimal fuel efficiency

Sedan Cars
Same Logic of starting with 1st gear, the
Around 10-12 Km - Shift to 2nd Gear
Around 25 Kmpl - Shift to 3rd Gear
Around 40 Km - Shift to 4th Gear
Around 50 - 55 Kmpl - Shift to 5th Gear, if clear traffic and Maintain speed of 60 - 65 Kmpl for Optimal fuel efficiency

However, when you drive on highways - there you should maintain speed below 70 Kmpl for Hatchback and 80 Kmpl for Sedan for optimal fuel efficiency as RPM will be around 2000 RPM in Indian cars
