Nice one Nick - will try it tonight. Hopefully doesn't do much to the fuel economy, as already sitting at an average of 27mpg (mostly city driving)!!

You know what - I actually checked this last night,
I mainly to a 12 mile trip one way to work mix 6 miles on m-way and rest local roads
I normally get 35mpg in the mornings
Eve I get 41mpg. Dnt know how like !
In S mode and Dynamic - in the mornings 32mpg
Eve 38mpg.

I think I may need to check over a longer period though.

A Land Rover is the wrong vehicle if you’re worried about fuel economy.

Just drive it and enjoy 👍🏻

Must try Dynamic and S a bit more. I've been noticing bad lag when pulling off from junctions in my D180 - quite dangerous in the mornings, when I'm pulling out onto busy roads.
Good Afternoon Dani80

I am deeply concerned to learn of your comments. I would like to take the opportunity to investigate your concerns further.

May I request that you send the following details via PM:

Your Vehicle Identification Number (VIN)
Your personal contact details

Many Thanks

Every LR I’ve owned suffered lag to some degree. My D240 has it in abundance, it’s another LR quirk.

I would say every car review both written and on car site reviews comments on lethargic getaways from Auto box diesels left in either eco mode or Comfort mode pulling out of junctions or traffic light get a ways.

They all do it, one reason why mine when it arrives will be left in S mode from the get go.

I have P250 and the sound of the engine is really cool while using S mode
And the car gets more dynamic but to be fair even in D mode it's more than enough dynamic
