    Interested in the economy of the car (TonyF) since waiting for similar car in summer 2019. What does top gear pull per 1000 rpm it 25.3 mph/1000 rpm as quoted in the Autocar test ? That does seem low geared for a 140 mph car. Demonstrator car unavailable and long delivery times in Scotland. Any comments welcome....
    1,500 rpm at 50 mph in 6th. Tested yesterday.
    p.s. I make that 33.3 mph / 1,000 rpm.

    Well done TonyF...this shows that either Autocar were given a low geared car to test or else someone has not done their arithmetic properly! Given that correct gearing you can surely see 48 mpg with an efficient 2 litre engine and still have fun...Many thanks indeed.
