Hopefully of Interest 2010 vs 2016
#1
Hopefully this will be of interest?

Recently updated from a 2010 XTR 110PS (75k miles) to a 2016 XTR 100PS S/S (40k miles)

Haven't noticed the reduced max power, loaded or on hills, I've probably never used that extra 10PS
Fuel consumption 52.2, was 54.3 on the previous car (good mix of long, med, short journeys over 1000 miles)
The 8v engine seems quite a bit more refined than the 16v, quieter, smoother, no shake on switch off
Happy with the Stop/Start, I do switch it off if in heavy traffic
Overall noise levels lower, fewer shakes, rattles (engine, suspension, bodywork)
After a bit of research I got the Mirror-Link working and am using Sygic navigation on the 7 inch screen
The USB port is great for charging (as well as connecting to Mirror-Link)
(Rear) Parking sensors work well, about 300mm away from obstruction when warning goes full yellow
New car hasn't got the small luggage nets over rear passenger doors, no loss as I never used them
No rechargeable torch, new car has an additional light in the load-space
The opening window in the tailgate will probably be useful (haven't used it yet), the warning that its open is an annoying beep that doesn't have a dash message
Styling better, the original B9 was a bit marmite, the later one more subtle! the DRL's have raised positive comments.
The latest fabric better looking? and easier to keep clean

Hope this is of interest
