D300 vs D275

Post by SpokenHands » Mon Dec 02, 2019 1:56 pm

For some reason I thought the D275 model was a de-rated version of the same engine in the D300 to improve emissions
Evidently not as the D275 has emissions rated at 173g/km whilst the D300 does better at 167g/km despite being 500 kgs heavier!
What am i missing here??!!

Depends on wheel size, like for like, they both emit the same, which still doesn’t make much sense!

In many foreign markets the fiscal limit is applied about the engine power ...
in Italy for example it is 250 hp beyond which you pay a super fee ...
the 275 hp was introduced just to limit the fiscal power

I have the 22" wheels, presume they are slightly heavier but not 500 kgs heavier.
The D300 probably comes with more stock options - though i doubt it.
Unless the weight of my D300 includes its specific trim HSE First Edition

I thought 500kg was a typo :-) According to the brochure they both have an unladen weight (EU) of 2029 KG & gross Vehicle Weight of 2610 KG.

Wheels, sunroof, motors for 22 way seats, compressor for massage and possibly air suspension might all add to the total; but if 500KG, you haven't much left to passengers & luggage.

What figures are you comparing?
