Thanks John, with an initial 8 miles of effectively single track road and not the best of roads thereafter I think we would be nearer the 31.8mpg quoted for urban consumption, or maybe less.
I suggest that's poor by today's standards.
Allowing for our different driving styles (concluded from contributions to various driving threads
) I'm not sure the grunt would meet my needs. Granted the 10sec+ 0-60 does not determine whether overtaking performance is sufficient, nor is it in itself critical, but I cannot help see it as an indication. I prefer my car to blast past with ease, rather than 'without too much trouble '.
There's no harm in having a look, I'll pop in to the Inverness dealer on Thursday.
