T3 performance

Post by Rigel » Thu Dec 27, 2018 11:31 pm

I have recently ordered a T3 Inscription Pro. Just thinking I may have made the wrong choice of engine , so any comments would be appreciated. Downsizing from S80 as now just require a smaller car for local trips

Hi. If your other choice is a T4, then I can say it’s a great engine. I got my T4 early December and love it. I’ve moved from a 2.0 Tfsi Audi TT, so quite a change, however in dynamic mode its potent enough given the size of it. I probably would have happily gone for a t3, however I wanted AWD and Auto so had to go T4. The XC40 isn’t a car to be pushed hard so if your happy without AWD, T3 will probably be just fine.

Many thanks for this much appreciated. I had a test drive in a T3 and was very happy with it. Having then read a couple of road test reports I became a little concerned. A users view is always more accurate.

Hi, I’ve also ordered a T3 and have been wobbling about it’s performance. You’re not alone! I think for city driving it’s going to be just fine. I’ve read that if you’re planning on putting you’re foot down at 70mph to overtake on a suitable carriageway, you may need to shift down a gear or two to get moving!
