Strangled diesels

Post by Domfow » Thu May 17, 2018 1:09 pm

Has anybody else noticed that the MY2019 diesel XEs are considerably slower to 60 mph than previous years

my2016 which mine is and has a 0-60 time of 7.9 for the manual now that has increased by a whole second to 8.9,
The 180 and 240 seem to have gained a couple of 10ths of a second to reach 60 mph.
Move to the latest model and accelerate slower, not a great sales pitch :shock:

Parkers are still quoting XE launch year performance times

That's Ingenium Innovation for you !!
Even the petrol version has been upgraded with a dipstick rather than the electronic monitoring system.

They lied about the MY2016. I have the 163 and there is no way in a million years it does it in sub 8 seconds. I saw in a review over 2 years ago that it was recorded at just over 9 by one of the online motor review sites. That sounds about right to me so 8.9 isn't a surprise.
