2.0 190 4wd Ex Lux - First impression

Post by Geordietaff » Sun Mar 08, 2020 8:11 am

Picked up yesterday in Aldershot & 1st drive was up to Newcastle M3, M25, M1 & A1M :)
First impressions.
Steering is quite a bit lighter than my old Sorrento.
Love the looks.
The Adaptive cruise is going to take a bit of getting to - with the car slowing itself down (like it's supposed to I guess) with traffic ahead.
During this I had a minor niggle that you needed arms like am orange utan to rest on the centre console - only figured out this was height adjustable when I got back.
Lots of display stuff to get used to.
Most of all very happy with mpg 43.6 MPG - given this literally was first drive - and at my 'normal' rate of progress (ie +10% ish) & I am sure this will improve.

Now - someone tell me how to add an image to posts on here - whenever I press what I think is the photo I just get and img/img text pop up.... :D

I have the petrol version , bought from the same garage.

The screen technology takes quite some getting used to, but it’s worth it.

ACC is brilliant, but like lots of the tech on this car, has all sorts of hidden rules and features, like it doesn’t want you undertaking.

It’s a lovely drive, but after 4000 miles I’m still figuring out how to use it best

Enjoy

Hi Geordietaff, you’ll have lots of fun exploring the gadgets over the next few weeks (or even months. I have mine since October & it’s still surprises me! 🤪)
If you go into the full editor press the attachments tab you can then upload images.

Rdc I find if you’re undertaking once you see the image with the car on the right on the digital cockpit hit the accelerator and it will maintain the set speed.

You can set the sensibility of the steering yourself when you have the big menu wheel next to the shifter.
Set the wheel on "individual".
Click the settings wheel on the touch screen and you can set some things according to your own needs en wants.
Steering and how the ACC react for instance.

Haha - I like the idea of setting sensibility steering :lol: :lol:
Made me chuckle that - loads of folks have no sensibility on the roads - like indicators on a BMW that is...

Will check out that for sensitivity though - thanks Arno.

Thanks Stellamaris5 - only took me 300 odd miles and 6hrs to figure that one out. Was just going to stretch my arms as a last resort. :D
