I got about 47 mpg in the first month , have had mine 4 months now and have did about 5000 miles . Am getting about 65mpg. Very happy with my hybrid. Great for long motorway journeys ! Find the miles left gauge quite accurate as it checks out on a 400 miles motorway trip !

The overall look
15" tyres are nice and comfortable, hate those 17" wheels
The features like blind spot detection where the wing mirrors alert you and if you indicate it bleeps
The smart cruise control is a bit spooky where it brakes by itself - though can be a bit jerky if the giuy inf ront is on and off the brakes, I have it set on the closest setting just in case
Apple Car Play is ok, I like all the stering wheel integration

MPG- I'm getting 45 ish which isn't great.. I find it hardly ever just goes on battery, only when doing literally 5 mph, anything more than that the engine kicks in. I'm not hugely stressed because I mainly got a hybrid to reduce my company car tax BIK, but it's definitely NOT as advertised. Maybe I just drive with lead boots but it seems to say I am driving "ecologically"... will be interesting to see what you get.
The sat nav isn't Tom Tom but uses TomTom traffic which I had anyway, It's quite good, not as good as my old Tom Tom device but I'll live with it
Main pain is that to get the traffic you have to connect it to WiFi via your phone hotspot, if you can find a solution to this pray tell. I have an Iphone and when I plug in the USB it won't connect to the wifi unless I turn the hotspot off and on again.
Not mad on the footbrake but you get used to it, I keep forgetting it's on..
Visibility out of the back isnt great with the bar across, but you get used to that, I am getting used to using a reversing camera!
Tank is quite small, 40 litres? So it says about 530 miles range, I think I am used to my old diesel which did 675, I certainly don't get 535, got about 450 off the last one but am only on my second fill up so will report back

This is sounding like more dislikes than likes, but I am very happy with it overall, would be really interesting to compare notes

Cheers

Hi!

I have the iron grey Premium (Hybrid) and it's a lovely colour! It really sparkles when waxed ..

I have a Premium Hybrid and I'm very impressed with my MPG.. I actually do a 60-mile-day commute and I average between 67 and 72mpg - I've only had the car for 4 weeks! On one mild day last week I hit 78mpg on one 30 mile run! Great considering I was driving a BMW 1 Series 'Eco' diesel and could never get anywhere near 60mpg.. averaged 50-55ish!!

The overall look
15" tyres are nice and comfortable, hate those 17" wheels yep, its a compromise, I prefer the better ride of the 15" to the better handling of the 17" very few of us are likely to push the car to handling limits to need the 17's
The features like blind spot detection where the wing mirrors alert you and if you indicate it bleeps
The smart cruise control is a bit spooky where it brakes by itself - though can be a bit jerky if the guy in front is on and off the brakes, I have it set on the closest setting just in case the smart cruise I find only useful of motorway in light traffic, otherwise I tend to use the speed limiter to stop me gradually picking up speed
Apple Car Play is ok, I like all the steering wheel integration


Dislikes
MPG- I'm getting 45 ish which isn't great.. in the 1st 1000 miles the ECU and gearbox are learning, as well as the engine being a bit tight, it improves rapidly the other thing is to learn to drive smoothly with gentle braking and acceleration and its suprising you rarely lose much time I find it hardly ever just goes on battery, only when doing literally 5 mph, anything more than that the engine kicks in. I'm not hugely stressed because I mainly got a hybrid to reduce my company car tax BIK, but it's definitely NOT as advertised. Maybe I just drive with lead boots but it seems to say I am driving "ecologically"... will be interesting to see what you get.yep keep it in the green and out the white on the left gauge to improve EV mode usage
The sat nav isn't Tom Tom but uses TomTom traffic which I had anyway, It's quite good, not as good as my old Tom Tom device but I'll live with it
Main pain is that to get the traffic you have to connect it to WiFi via your phone hotspot, if you can find a solution to this pray tell.a few have a free sim from three that gives 250mb of data a month and a usb dongle, this provide enough data for the satnav and provides a plug and forget solution I have an Iphone and when I plug in the USB it won't connect to the wifi unless I turn the hotspot off and on again.
Not mad on the footbrake but you get used to it, I keep forgetting it's on.. you do get used to it fairly quickly
Visibility out of the back isnt great with the bar across, but you get used to that, I am getting used to using a reversing camera! you will find that bar is great at night it is just in the right place to block the headlights of idiots behind
Tank is quite small, 40 litres? So it says about 530 miles range, I think I am used to my old diesel which did 675, I certainly don't get 535, got about 450 off the last one but am only on my second fill up so will report back, I have had 700 miles out of a tank, but that is driving quiet economically, , I average about 600 per tank

This is sounding like more dislikes than likes, but I am very happy with it overall, would be really interesting to compare notes
