Had to drive home with the rear trunk/hatch door partly open last weekend in order to transport a pre-hung door purchase. The exhaust sound was extra special for that ride - really loud and delightfulHA I was going to make a post asking if people knew how to make it louder. I have zero issues with the exhaust on the 380 v6.
I totally agree with the cabin being "extremely quiet" ! However , it is so darn quiet , I can unfortunately HEAR every word *VR* is rambling on about !My Infiniti FX35 was louder, wish my F-Pace was as loud. For me, the cabin is extremely quiet which is one of many reasons I bought the car.
I love it....I have never used ECO mode, can't see the need for it myself..Kind of like putting a governor on a Race car..why?...Let them ponies loose..>I am exactly opposite of most on here. I find the exhaust to be very droning, especially near 2,000 RPM. In ECO the exhaust is very tame, extremely dialed back. But in normal and especially in dynamic you will notice the exhaust, even while listening to music.
Dont get me wrong I love the exhaust, but I don't see how people can act like it isn't loud, because it is.
Apparently you fellas overlooked a Key Word in my post ! *USUALLY* !!!I love it....I have never used ECO mode, can't see the need for it myself..Kind of like putting a governor on a Race car..why?...Let them ponies loose..>
ECO comes in handy in a lot of situations, unless you dont mind visiting the gas station every few days. In traffic there is a HUGE difference if you are driving in ECO or dynamic. If you are in a city that has a stop sign/light every quarter mile there is a huge difference.I love it....I have never used ECO mode, can't see the need for it myself..Kind of like putting a governor on a Race car..why?...Let them ponies loose..>
And GR..Love your reason for being too quiet..Now I have to clean the Dr Pepper off my monitor.
Very true, road and wind noise are very apparent in the cabin, especially at speed. I would have really appreciated a double pane window on all four doors; Lexus does this and it works wonders for wind noise. But I do disagree with you on the exhaust. I think it is very apparent, maybe its because I came from a Lexus GS that had no exhaust unless you got it up to 5000 RPM but I think it is very noticeable inside and outside of the car.I wish I heard more exhaust sound. The cabin is not as quiet as you'd expect for a luxury brand. But the two aren't necessarily related.
