Interesting..you will be pleased with the active display... I'm surprised what you say about the ride..mine has the 18 inch wheels and floats over road humps etc...much better than my previous Citroen, also on 18 inch wheels..

Thanks for comments, didnt check tyre pressures just assumed a feature of very low profile tyres. It was the way the steering was sensitive to rough patches of road , I noticed it but didnt mention it to my wife who then drove and she commented straight away that she had to "really control the steering on the rough bumpier parts of the road". Not something we had ever noticed in the Yetis we have had.

I have found that the "lane assist" function can make the steering feel odd, so switched it off..!

It only kicks in if you fail to indicate while crossing a line. On a short journey it could be annoying but on a trip it could certainly be useful. Personally i indicate at every opportunity to give other road users notice of my intent ,on a long trip this could save tiredness accidents so has its place.

Looking back to the driving test we are learning to indicate changing lanes so theres no excuse for a safety system to be annoying.

The lane assist is annoying at times. It is not just about indicating. It also thinks I’m not steering at times and sounds an alarm.
R-line,white + winter pack, park assist, beats.
