Hi All
I know its cold but has anybody who has the 1ltr 95 noticed how long it takes to warm up !
Done the same journey as I did in my 1.4 l Leon and double the distance to warm up nearly 2 miles to get to 80 degrees and max was 84 degrees
My Leon warmed up in half the time and sat at 90 degrees

Also length of time to clear rear screen seems longer

Hello Brian566,

I don't used my car much so the below has taken a few trips to collate.
I've used locations on my journey to get an average of when each square on the temp guage lights up, then I used google maps to map the distance.
My Arona is a 1.5 FR so the results could be different.
The first 5 miles of my journey to work are on normal side streets and at 5am I do stick to the 30mph speed limit.

So the first square on the temp guage lights when starting the car.
I travel 1.5 miles before the next square lights up.
Then next square lights after 1.3 miles and the final square taking the temp to 90 degress is after 1.1 miles.
Total travelling distance is 3.9 miles.
There is 1 set of traffic lights in that 3.9 miles at 1.1 miles, and sometimes I get caught at them if flashing the lights does not change them from red to green.
