  1. Looks interesting. The power seems to piggy back off the ACC power connector.
  2. Yes the ACC is antcipating that you are going to overtake when you activate the indicators
  3. If you have the ACC active and are following a vehicle the system will try to maintain a set distance, reducing speed if necessary however if you pull out to overtake indicating as you do so then the car will accelerate to the set speed provided there are no slower vehicles in the 'overtaking' lane. This may not be ideal under all circumstances as if there are vehicles behind travelling faster then they can be baulked by you as the rate of acceleration in ACC is relatively slow. Best to override and accelerate manually if this is likely to occur.
  4. I'm not sure about this. The traction battery, whichever type, is mounted under the rear seat. In the 2.0 there is just not any space under the bonnet to install the 12v 'accessory' battery with the physically bigger engine and hybrid drive system so it has to go either under the boot floor as in the hatchback or in the side compartment as in the TS. So unless there are some major changes to the drivetrain and / or body architecture then I guess these limitations will remain.
  5. Does anyone know which multimedia system is fitted to my 2021 MY car? None of those in the image downloaded from Toyota look anything like the one fitted
  6. "The most basic definition of a gearbox is that it is a contained gear train, or a mechanical unit or component consisting of a series of integrated gears within a housing. In fact, the name itself defines what it is — a box containing gears. In the most basic sense, a gearbox functions like any system of gears; it alters torque and speed between a driving device like a motor and a load." So doesn't necessarily need to provide different ratios.
  7. Unless the epicyclic makes it a gearbox. It is afterall just a casing with a series of gears inside. Gearboxes are used throughout the engineering world not just in cars of course (pedant )
  8. yes about the same for me too
  9. I have the 2.0 Design ST also in Manhatten Grey which is a great colour choice. Done nearly 8000 miles now so getting close to the first service. I agree that the steering is a bit light but you get used to it. Maybe better on different tyres to the Falken's fitted as standard. Had Falkens a few years ago on a Fiesta and swore I'd never have them again as it felt like you were on ice even in the summer! Economy now between 55 and 56mpg. I generally do a 20 mile commute every day but on B roads and very little traffic usually with a longer run once or twice a month on A roads and motorways. A great car in lots of ways and suits my liefstyle so very happy so far.
  10. 2.0 in UK doesn't have the launch gear, has a NiMH battery no chains or belts, paddleshifters and no B mode.
  11. Gyeon bathe Gyeon iron wheel cleaner Gyeon wet coat Bilt Hamber auto foam
  12. Don't bet on the supplying dealer setting the tyre pressures correctly mine were all at 5barg when I took delivery of mine.
  13. I managed to get £4600 off list for mine and what I thought was a good part ex valuation when I ordered back in August last year
  14. The operation of the engine to act as a mechanical resistor is the most obvious difference between the 1.8 and the 2.0 and of course it also has the B function on the gear selector which the 2.0 doesn't. Weirdly the action of the engine under braking reminded me of the airbrakes on a plane as the rev counter swings round and the brake force increases and then swings back again as the car or plane slows.
