MY19 Orders - MY20 Build

Post by FunkyGibbon » Fri Jan 11, 2019 12:49 pm

As several of us did, I confirmed my order with my lease firm in the limbo between the change from MY19 to MY20 (pretty much anyone that ordered Sep to early Nov). As the Jag configurator and options list was still showing the MY19 choices, those are the ones that got locked down in my order with the only change from MY19 to MY20 being the inclusion of the Winter Pack as standard and some changes to base price.

However I stumbled across this thread recently: viewtopic.php?f=8&t=783&p=10545&hilit=s ... y20#p10545 which suggests that the functionality of the 'Active Air Suspension' option has also changed MY19 to MY20. I've spoken to the dealer who is supplying to my lease firm and they have indeed confirmed that the functionality has been switched to the additional ASAD option (at an extra £800) but that Jag had failed to notify the dealers of this change. As you can imagine, I'm escalating this with my lease firm/dealer/Jag to see how I get what I asked for but thought I'd share the issue with anyone else that added the option during the model year limbo.

I'm also still waiting for my build slot but that's another thread all together!

FG.

Yep also ordered in Nov 19 at the point the winter pack was needed. I went in to add the ASwAD option (and added ASR) a week ago and noticed the switch to the winter pack being standard (MY20). I'd expect that you won't get the functionality unless you add the ASwAD though as the cars have flipped MY. Adding it now (cost permitting :-( ) should be ok if you don't have a build slot though? Not a major change in order unlike say moving from SE to HSE etc.

We can now add ASwAD to the Depeche Mode....

I noticed the description change going from MY19 to MY20, I was uncertain about Active Dynamics on the MY19 and wasn't going to bother. However reading the MY20 description is made it almost a defiantly want if you are going to go with Air suspension. I know I'd be really annoyed for the next 3-4 years if I got just Air and didn't like it, so went with the extra cost almost out of peace of mind.

Seems like it can only be a software change and maybe low take up of AD is why they flipped it over? The promise of extra range is going to catch anyone's eye.

I'll see what the lease firm/dealer/Jag can offer by way of a discount for the messing around and make the call of going for springs (saving a grand off the price) or adding ASAD.

Just to put this into perspective - I don't think anybody has proved whether or not the suspension lowering at 65 mph actually happens.
And there's even less evidence that it increases range!
I have an SE with AAS and AD and as far as I'm aware there is absolutely no way to tell.
Except perhaps by photographing an IPace on a dual-carriageway?

Quote from the new MY20 configurator... 'The sophisticated optional air suspension automatically lowers the car by 10mm when travelling at speeds in excess of 105km/h... Reducing the space between the car and the road improves aerodynamic performance and therefore range'

It would be cadish, even for Jaaaaaag, to make such a claim without some evidence that a) the car does it and b) it makes a difference surely? Not saying it's going to get me to the WLTP numbers but can't do any harm.

I agree that it probably does happen. Although I'd like to know what the "extended periods of time" is in seconds.

And it would be nice to see a message or at least a flash of the AAS control lights so that we know we are getting value for money from the AAS option. Hmm - maybe they do flash - they're not something I tend look at when travelling at 70 mph!

Agreed - There's a warm comfortable feeling when the car confirms that your money is working hard for you... Like when the traction control light flashes on the twisty roads or the EBS light if you're a bit late on the brakes :)
