Tested a 2019, 1.4 n-line +
« February 02, 2020, 10:56:36 »
Me again - been out & had the usual short test drive of the 1.4 n line +.

I have to say, it picked up & seemed pretty willing to play - i was a bit concerned it might be a bit slow Vs my 2015 1.6T but not an issue on that score.
Good support from the seats & a nice tone from the engine / exhaust.
Suspension / tyres (slightly) softer than on mine which TBH isn't a bad thing when driving on the lousy quality of UK roads.
On the whole, I'm quite taken by it...

HOWEVER - when engaging reverse the door mirrors dip  :question: :question:- that is very strange and disconcerting - not able to see anything other than the floor & so you are reliant on the camera.


a) any views; did you get used to this quickly etc
b) is there any ( easy) way to stop this function.
c) is it pretty much standard across the range  - & now cars generally?

Cheers ( i didn't think i was a luddite, but maybe I'm turning into one!)

The dipping door mirror would be switchable in the menus. Interestingly it's normally only the kerb side mirror that does that in cars so equipped. I liked it in a previous car I had (not my previous 2017 i30 1.6T SR) I don't think that feature is offered on Aussie delivered i30's unless they snuck it into the Premium or new N-line without anyone telling me.  :cool:

Hi!

On my GD (and on my current Ioniq) the door mirror flipping was set/unset by using the L/R switch on the door handle control. When left in either left or right position the reverse function dips both mirrors; when in the neutral position the dipping does not occur.
