Shwmai from South Wales

Post by rod9669 » Sun Jul 28, 2019 7:39 pm

Just ordered a Sportline 2.0 4x4 for delivery 2nd Sept - ordered on-line at what I think is a very good PCH price

Couple of quick questions - I believe the foot action to open the tailgate is an option? Is this a factory only option or is it something a local dealer (or I?) could fit

Also, on my current Optima SW the wing mirrors fold in automatically to show that it's locked - does the Karoq do this?

Finally, any heavy footed drivers out there with this engine? What sort of real-life MPG should I expect? Went manual as couldn't afford the auto :cry:

Thanks in advance - sure I'll have more questions in the next few months!

Hi and welcome, i have the same (well will have when i get it back) i have pushed it in sports mode and normal mode, both give the same mpg 40+ if driven steady in sports and on motorways it will return 50+ .

The virtual pedal for the tail gate is a factory option, works well for me but the wife has a hit and miss relationship with it, but anything electrical is doomed when in her hands :lol: .

Enjoy when you get it, you will find it a lovely drive and very comfortable :D
