Easy switch to new XC60 T5 Inscription AWD
December 3, 2018
We had the XC60 2017 on lease from Weston, which Greg Billini helped us negotiate. Greg has kept in touch re the new deals and this time he also involved his colleague Danny Paulino. Both were efficient, courteous and patient with questions, including those from Marilyn, my wife. This time we got the new 2018 XC Inscription well loaded with options. This car retails at nearly $55,000, so it is not a cheap car, but it is a delight in every way to drive and I think the lease we got was a fair rate. We have already done 1300 miles and enjoyed everyone of them. The adaptive cruise control will bring you down gently from 70 to a stop and the lane guidance is also good. The GPS is light years ahead of the one on the old XC60 and the hook up to ApplePlay works well, even tough this duplicates some functions the car has built-in. Basically all the little niggles of the old XC60 have been ironed out: the GPS, the home start A/C stays on when you open the door, there is a trunk lock button which also locks the car doors and there is also a foot-operated trunk opener, and the car is a lot quieter. Finally, especially in white, we think it looks great, even though the original XC 60 design is an enduring classic.
