when I picked it up it started at 13mpg.December 23, 2020 at 11:14 pm #13315972 dudes
That includes all the shunting around at the dealer, coming off the transporter, PDI etc.
You should have reset it before you set off Brydo!
Won’t be long before you’re getting low 40s on a run 🙂December 23, 2020 at 11:15 pm #133160file28Participant
Congratulations on your new car
Hopefully the mpg will improve as it loosens up

Welcome to the club.

First impressions fantastic car to drive, getting used to the auto drive as always had manual, but so far looks great drives great. Wife loves it as do my son and daughter.

Congratulations on your new car, it looks gorgeous, love the interior. Can’t wait to get mine but there is a lot of sleeps yet 😢, enjoy.
On the xc40 Forum they are averaging around 35 ish mpg, so it will improve.December 24, 2020 at 10:24 am #133196December 24, 2020 at 10:30 am #133197Macca
If I remember rightly ours was doing 6mpg as we drove away from the dealer but didn’t give it a second thought, it soon changes.
Enjoy the new ride fella ✊December 24, 2020 at 11:03 am #133200Markymate
Nice looking car, Brydo. Do love that interior. You’ll soon get used to the automatic. Enjoy.December 24, 2020 at 11:37 am #133201Brydo
@wmcforum yes it does a bit but still prefer manual cars, much more feel.
Ive put it on eco mode so let’s see how that effects the mpg 40 miles 19.6mpg as it stands.
I feel that the auto wouldn’t be as good in the snow no touch or feel.
Need to sit and look at the bits and bobs of the car so if you have one and want to share your knowledge feel free I would appreciate it.December 24, 2020 at 1:16 pm #133209Macca
Have no fear Brydo, I’m 553 miles in on a 2wd B4 ….December 24, 2020 at 1:50 pm #133210Brydo
Looking good Mecca, that would do me nicely.
I haven’t even looked at setting up the car, voice recognition, iPhone etc so will need to get onto that over the next few days.December 24, 2020 at 2:09 pm #133212Macca
It was hitting 50mpg on the motorway on a trip out this afternoon. I drive in Eco mostly and I like a casual drive.
Obviously if you knock it into dynamic and wear a lead boot everything will change very rapidly 😂December 24, 2020 at 2:34 pm #133213Farid Miah
That colour combo looks really nice Brydo, Do you think the blonde would look nice with the glacier silver?
I’m not sure about the crustal white, plus its an extra £275 i think.
Is that crystal gearknob lit up?December 24, 2020 at 2:49 pm #133220Stephanie O’Donnell
We had ours delivered to us on Tuesday evening but haven’t had time to take pictures yet. Hoping to spend the next few days getting to know all the settings, voice control etc.December 24, 2020 at 2:56 pm #133227Glos GuyParticipant
Well done Brydo. Looks very smart and I love the interior. Pleased to hear that you got the boot issue sorted and are enjoying the car. I predict two things. Firstly, your mpg will improve markedly and put your mind at rest. Secondly, once you have become used to an auto you will never go back to a manual. Nobody would choose manual windows over electric ones 😂 Enjoy!December 24, 2020 at 5:38 pm #133238Brydo
Farid I like the glacier silver but the wife liked the white and yes I’m sure it will go with the blonde leather. No the crystal thingy doesn’t light up but it looks good.
Its strange but apart from the boot the white paint and blonde leather makes it feel bigger than our xc60, which was black with cream leather.
Gloss guy I’m sure your right, I have now travelled 70 miles and getting 22mpg. I have selected eco mode and switched the air con, which I seldom use, off.
And the seats are great, very comfy.December 24, 2020 at 6:08 pm #133243vinalspinParticipant
Was the black roof an cost option? (saw one on the motorway today in the white but it had a black roof)December 24, 2020 at 6:36 pm #13324972 Dudes
Maybe it’s another omission on the MY21, but the crystal gear selector definitely lights up in our MY20.December 24, 2020 at 6:45 pm #133251fwippersParticipant
Super car, enjoy.
