What car are you changing from?

Post by jim4244 » Sat Jan 20, 2018 2:18 pm

Hi all

For the last 7 years Mrs Jim and I have been running Land Rovers and Range Rovers.

After experiencing a couple of blips in Land Rover customer care she was adamant that she wanted to change and so we looked at the VW Tiguan R Line, the Merc GLC, Audi Q3 and the XC40.

She liked the look of the XC40 and we have ordered ours subject to liking it in the flesh and liking the way it drives, so I think that with the deal we secured on the trade in (£1600 more than the supplying LR dealership!) on her Evoke plus the discount we managed to haggle that it is a win win situation.

She will be going from a 2014 Evoke Dynamic, Firenze Red with Santorini Black roof and a charcole Black interior.

So, what other cars did folk on here consider before going for the XC40 and why?

Jim

From Merc E Class Estate. Considered Q2/Q3, X1/X3, ePace, and XC40. The Volvo offered the best price performance IMHO, especially with the First Edition spec and a very favourable PCP deal.
It was an XC40 FE D4 AWD Auto - Bursting Blue/Charcoal/20". On the road since March 9th. Sold on August 20th. It was Polestarred. :)

Did you consider the Q3 before going for the XC40?

Changing from a Jeep Renegade and an Audi S3, as two cars are no longer required. XC40 First Edition T5 seems to be best of both!
