Re: Upgraded to the Orange Edition

I did like the Orange edition but didn't want to push myself that far financially, so settled on a 2 litre Design. Still secretly fancy the Orange one though......

Re: “S”mode

Just to be clear, S mode is Sports mode. This makes throttle response more sensitive and uses EV mode at lower speeds to give you instant torque. B position on gear lever is for engine braking - which helps slow the vehicle down: as you would changing down on a manual gearbox. Do not drive in B. Mo...

Re: Sat Nav

I still tend to use the satnav in my 2020MY C-HR as I like the display in the instrument cluster, but agrees that you have to keep an eye on it as it normally tells you to take a turn after the exit. Saying that I notice that this also occurs on my phone using Google Maps...... My favourite is still...

Re: “S”mode

On my 2.0L I've only used the S mode for engine braking going down steep hills, it seems quick enough in normal D mode without needing to play with the gears. I did try selecting Eco mode but missed the instant response of normal mode.

Re: Thanks for everything chrforums

You're going for the Kia E-Nero I belive? It certainly seems to be one of the best electric cars of there at the moment, especially for the money, as evidenced by the long waiting list. Enjoy.

Re: 2020 C-HR Android Auto

I'm using a Samsung S10e using a cheap and cheerful short cable sourced from Amazon, seems to work fine for me. So far I've only used Google maps and the Samsung music player but have been happy with the result.

Re: Self parking feature

I tried my 2020 model using the park assist to parallel park today for the first time. It did beep when I was close to the car behind but I wasn't brave enough to see if it stopped by itself.
Now to find somewhere to try the end on parking.......

Re: MPG - for those of you who have the Hybrid

My 2.0L is showing an average of about 47mpg with 900 miles on the clock. Reasonably happy with that as is mostly around town, apart from one 400 mile round trip. For part of that I could compare directly with my previous car, a Nissan Pulsar 1200. For half of the return part of the trip the Nissan ...
