Just being mischievous, didn't the Mini have a central display decades ago ?

Just had a very brief look at a showroom model. This had the Indigo interior which i liked. It's not quite up to XC40 standard but it is very, very close. Front seats comfortable and adjust across a wide range. Good space and storage in the front. However the rear very tight. The rear seat base is quite low so no under thigh support. Boot space actually seems pretty reasonable for the size of car and the rear seats fold leaving a flat floor. Decent under floor storage. Not sure if there is a "froot".
The central screen is clear and seems intuitive to use. Could not establish just where driving details such as speed, warning signs etc are displayed.
I think we will probably try a test drive - available from 16/2 allegedly.

Hi
They are all shown in the centre display including speed, there is Carwow video review of the EX30 well worth a watch

Very mischievous, and yes it was in the centre dial. But back then you didn't need to keep such a close eye on your speed, what with speed cameras, average speed sections, and now Mark Drakeford's infernal 20 mph.

Hi
Went to see an xc30 today, okay the car was outside a it was drizzling with rain the immediate impression I got was how small it looked more like a ford puma car . Got inside and seemed to be surrounded by dark very hard plastic , took an immediate dislike to the car the salesman said well it is recycled material as if we are to accept cheap looking hard plastic because it’s recycled.
To be fair I didn’t view the car in ideal conditions but it is not for me, it is competitively priced but they need to spend some money on the interior, others will disagree but that is the conclusion I came too.
