The sales guy I spoke to said it was to meet emission and mpg figures, there is a 3mpg difference he claimed.Apparently the assist fuel economy and they deliver a better ride than the 19”. I do prefer them as they are painted alloys and the tyres have significant sidewalls which reduces the risk of curbing.
As of May's update if you ordered in April ICE will be Sept but Hybrids are slipping to maybe Oct, if you order now for any it will be Dec, but he did say watch this space as KIA/Hyundai have much better supply chains than VW/Ford/Renault etc.Did they quote you any delivery dates,?
Nice, Ive ordered same model but in silver. Is it as slow and as sluggish gearbox wise as some Hybrid users on other forums are trying to suggest ?
Thanks for the update, I wasn't to worried if I am honest as the review it cam from was by a 25yr old "Clarkson" wannabe that I can't find now.Well I’ve only had the car for a day and not covered many miles, however I’m thoroughly happy with the car. I’m coming out of a 16 year old Audi though!!
