    I use Enterprise a lot for work, any journey over 140 miles round trip has to be done via train or hire car. We have a company account so I simply log in and book the car to be delivered.
    As we spend public money (academies group) we have to keep to a lower specification/cost car, I generally go for an auto Astra sized but this week I’ve booked a manual Octavia or equivalent.
    Very happy to find this delivered today!

    Jaguar F-Pace 2.0tdi R-Sport AWD. Nice.

    Have a 2 hour drive to and from Swindon tomorrow, this should lessen the pain.

    Quite nice, but do you find it a bit underpowered with a 2 Ltr diesel?

    Good luck. Son in law had two. First was a company car and early model, lots of electronics issues, sat nav. Would die, you had to switch it off and restart to close a window after you opened it etcetc. JLR cancelled lease as it was embarrassing (he looked after the fleet!)

    Second one was better but I couldn’t get along with the auto (press, recite the alphabet then it went), the sat nav was useless, and it rattled.

    Feels pretty well screwed together on initial drive round the block. The rising gear knob is a nice gimmic.
    Agreed, 180bhp from a four pot derv in a two tonne car might be a struggle. Will see tomorrow.
    Nice place to sit though.

    Yes, it looks it. Good legroom as well. Or are you tiny? :D

    I’m six foot thanks.....

    Not sure the “sport” in SUV is correct. Gave up with Dynamic mode and put it in Eco. Wafted a long and was great.
    Nothing has broken yet, but I’ve only done the journey there so far....

    Heated steering wheel is nice.

    Apologies, no offence intended!

    Good to see plenty legroom.

    Ha, none taken.

    200+ miles later, and it didn’t break down. Bonus.

    Mainly a good car, not as quiet as I was expecting, road noise was apparent, as was the shout of the engine when pushing on. I think the size of car requires another 2 cylinders/100bhp to give it the power to weight required. Strained a wee bit at times, and I wasn’t even pushing on fully.

    Very comfortable, good driving position. Annoying storage bin on the central console, alongside my left knee, uncomfortable after a while.
    Good seats.

    Technology seems a little counter intuitive, I’m usually pretty good at jumping into a strange car and getting to grips with the systems quickly. Took me an age to find the trip computer!

    Handed well enough for a big barge, tight enough but not sporty at all.

    Managed 41.1mpg according to the computer, would seem reasonable if it had more power/larger engine.

    A pleasant change indeed, but wouldn’t part with my hard earned for one.

    My enterprise Audi Q5 goes back tomorrow thankfully. It is probably similar size to the jag with a similar 2 litre diesel, I absolutely hate it. I can really see why people don’t get SUV’s if they drive like this, total pants for a 40 odd grand car.
    And it doesn’t even have folding mirrors, which just adds to the annoyance.

    Can’t fault Enterprise so far though, did everything they said they would do

    As in one of my other posts on here, I’m not an SUV fan at all. Agree that there seems to be a bit of style over substance with these, but each to their own!

    I’m sure I might enjoy the four exhaust monster version.

    Back in my old 320d today, obviously I am biased but I very much enjoyed the return to my car. Banbury and back was a pleasure.
    Old tech, only six gears, no fancy leather dash or heated steering wheel, but a damn sight quicker and more economical. Oh, and looks waaaaaaay better.

    Last weeks Enterprise offering:

    I really shouldn’t like it, some dubious interior plastics and a 1.2T engine, but, these was something quite “fizzy” about the days experience. Clearly wouldn’t buy one, but fun for a day.

    Toyota C-HV I think. Although I accidentally called it a Toyota HRT to one lady.....
    My mate said it looks like it should have 700bhp and be in a Lego movie.

    I remember seeing one when they first arrived / hatched, in a space grey shade, looked really smart and futuristic, it drew ‘alot’ of attention in the car Park
    The wife and I was camping, on the way home, we went in by a dealership and was underwhelmed with the interior, such a shame as clearly a lot of work has went into the exterior lines and handles ( in the flesh they look different albeit colour and spec specific)
