I sampled this engine/transmission combo the other day in the 2018 F-Pace, and wanted to report that I was pleasantly surprised. Very refined and quiet, even in the F-Pace. Power was more than adequate. I understand why some will always prefer a big V6/V8, but this engine suited the car very well. I'm no longer worried about my choice. Based on this, the P300 is going to be fantastic.
