Re: T3 RDesign or T5 Momentum?

I am sure this is the wise choice. It begs the question of why there is so little price difference in Portugal but an enormous one in UK. Does the government subsidise hybrids?

Re: Tyre recommendations?

Shocked by then needing to be replaced at that mileage. I got well over 30k on my Tiguan (190 FWD) without a problem. My R Design D4 came with Pirelli Scorpion Verde and I am happy with them over first 5K but won't be if I need to change under 30K! I thought most XC40s came on these from forum.

Re: Parking brake

Thanks Silver Moose. That update makes sense as I regularly move mine in car park where I live with out having to release the handbrake. You had to put seat belts on in my Audi which was a pain to go a couple of yards off road.

Re: MPG - Again :-)

I have a R design D4 and mpg is improving now I have done 4k. I am averaging just over 40 mpg without trying or even thinking about it and never using ECO. I get 42 or so on motorways and around 38 on short runs. A little worse than my previous Tiguan with comparable engine which averaged 42 in the ...

Re: Is the XC40 a noisy car?

interesting reviews. Why can't UK reviews give hard facts like noise levels etc?

Re: Is the XC40 a noisy car?

I moved to a D4 R Design two months ago from the equivalent VW Tiguan. Much quieter all round and smoother drive too. I really like it but do find the touchscreen controls a bit fiddly - I would have preferred a few knobs. Mind you the voice control is streets ahead of the VW and the Audi I had befo...

Re: XC40 plug-in hybrid now available!

Performance is slightly disappointing but the killer for me is lack of AWD. I would never go back to just FWD. I'll need to wait for the Disco Sport if I want a hybrid (which I do) but happy with the D4 R Design I have in meantime.

Re: Fuelling with 2 flaps

Haven't found a problem at any garage yet. Used a Tesco this morning which had a very short nozzle (shortest I have seen) and there was no problem at all.
