    I think it sounds great, albeit the 4cyl thing really doesn't do it for me.

    I can also imagine what the out of warranty repair bills are going to look like
    Basically 3 interdependent power trains haha

    Definitely sounds overly complicated to me. Hope it is worth the effort.

    Can I interest you in a car that has a turbo and supercharged gasoline engine plus electric motors and AWD? Volvo would like to chat.

    Where do all these disposable cars go after warranty? haha I can't imagine anyone wanting to own one of these later, the resale should be abysmal.

    Cars have been disposable for a long time. It’s not like transmissions are easily serviceable these days. Same with EVs, breach a battery pack, you’re replacing the whole thing.

    You can argue it’s more things that can go wrong, but hybrids like the Prius shows that’s not a huge issue.

    I know someone with a ~2014 Sienna and the transmission went at ~150,000km. They were quoted $14K at the dealership. That was after the dealer charged them $1,600 for the first "fix".

    Don't get me wrong, Toyota is arguably the best when it comes to reliability but they still have problems and are expensive to fix. The person I know fixed it and still brags about how good Toyota is...

    Our FJ cruiser was a complete piece of shit.

    The 2 NX’s we have had since have been rock solid though.

    I’ll admit it’s not something I worry that much about with a new car, and I rarely keep them long enough to matter.

    There was no fixing in that situation - it was a replacement. Transmissions and many other parts are too difficult to repair/work on these days for your average shop, so they would rather drop in a replacement than take it apart and make it worse.

    That’s my point. Everything is expensive to fix hence disposable. Don’t fear the complexity. Enjoy the experience haha.

    For those with Apple one subs...

    Car magazine published some details here as well. Reading further into the magazine, the SL and GTs look to be going 4 cylinder too.

    In my books. I think a 4Cyl C63S is worse.

    V8 still available in the GT 63s and 73s.

    Honestly, I don’t care if it’s 4 cylinders, if it drives with torque everywhere and instant response, works for me. It’s not like the 45 engine sounded bad or anything.

    Confirmed C63 gets the f1 mgu h. 650hp AWD zero lag. Same unit from the amg one, same unit going into GT73. Fuck ton of tech details in the slides.
