Cool Xc 40

I had ordered an XC40, having had a good look at one in Copenhagen, and driven one in the U.K., but frankly, even though it is a very good quality motor car, the boot is just too small for me, and I would suggest, ‘most Disabled customers’ ?

Perhaps if they introduced the sliding rear seat, like in the Tiguan, or even the BMW’s ( even as an option ) it would then accommodate mobility equipment better, especially for shorter journeys?

Unfortunately I now have to think again as I now need more equipment to be carried?

Cool

Here we go then, time to take cover- i have ordered a new factory build VW Tiguan , with a lot of kit on board, but it could take 32/33 weeks to arrive, and in the meantime I continue leasing the XC60!


The Tiggy has a 60/40 split rear seat squab , each portion of which slides independently up to six inches, still leaving a fair bit of legroom in the back , and the 40/20/40 split backrests recline individually.

With the seats up the boot holds between 560 & 615 L . of luggage compared to the XC 40 at 432 L.

Still a Current Volvo owner for the next 7-8 months, and then VW for 2-3+years, then ?????
