What have you just found out about your XC40.

Post by Skyrimmer » Thu Sep 05, 2019 3:51 pm

Had the car 3 months now and only just found out there is a warning triangle folded up and stored in a cubby hole in the tail gate. :D

That’s one hell of a question. I’m still finding things out about my wife....

I'd had mine for months before spotting the fridge button in the glove box. Also, (thanks to a post on here) I found out you can move the order of the buttons on the main screen (cruise, headrests, camera etc) so the ones you use are in a sensible place :)

Today as I gave the car its first Hoover out I noticed the little Swedish flag on the drivers seat for the first time.

I've realised, or at least I think I can guide the car as to when to kick in the stop/start when stopped on auto hold. Press the brake softly, and the engine will stay running, giving it a firmer push and the engine will be stopped. Find it useful when creeping at a junction and want a quick start to join traffic.

Also realised today the car has an "airwoofer" - I thought that was only available on the Harmon Kardon upgrade.

Press and hold your finger on the button. Move it to where you want it on the screen, and release.

How difficult it is to wash!! Coming from a Mini to this is a shock - in a nice way.

I too have noticed this, but having not read anything about it anywhere, I thought I was just making it up. Good to have independent confirmation!

Just found out that if in cruise control when you press the up down buttons the speed increases by 1mph at lower speeds but when you are cruising at 70-80 then each press jumps the speed in approx 5mph increments. Nice if over taking at higher speeds
