2014 vs 2015

Good day,

Would like people who had the 2014 and now have the 2015 CRD to chime in and tell us if there is any difference in the driving and performance of the vehicle.

We know the differences on paper but I am more interested in the driving experience.

i.e - tranny shifting, fuel economy, any other performance or ride qualities you can think of

Thanks

Simon

Re: 2014 vs 2015

So far we haven't noticed anything major. We both commented right away that it seemed like less motor noise and that the nav seemed to respond quicker. Also seemed like the suspension was stiffer but that could be that the '15 is new. Only 1000 on the new one but at least EVIC MPG seems to be about the same. Both are limited OR2, tech and lux. As has been mentioned before eco does keep the previous setting.

Re: 2014 vs 2015

I went from the V8 to the CRD so I can't comment on the driving differences but functional differences between the two. The head unit does respond more quickly. The ride feels smoother but this might be because of the mileage and the condition of my tires. The knobs feel smaller. The head unit display seems better quality, more vivid.

Will comment more as I have a chance to drive it.
