Re: FAQ? GX3h vs GX4h

Must admit, I'm glad I've the 4. Frost free and warm car ready in the winter mornings, heated leather seats are always nice. Reversing camera is useful, especially when hitching a caravan and also for seeing whether the tailgate will foul, plus I've got used to the guide lines. Sunroof I'm not so bothered about - it as only been opened once and that was by mistake when looking for the light switch. And finally, the headlights are nice :)

The sun roof can make a useful contribution towards maximising EV range - the aircon does suck a fair amount of charge and having the sun roof open can help to keep the cabin temperature down without a howling gale in your ears from open windows.

Increasing win resistance. Has somebody figured out the tradeoff at various speeds?

Unless you are prepared to sit in a sauna, you would have to compare the drag of an open sunroof against the drag of an open window. My guess is that the sunroof would win - it seems to be more aerodynamic than the window.

The test drive was good!

I've gone for it an ordered a GX3h in Atlantic Grey. Ship due in port on the 29th and the dealer hopes to have it one to two weeks after that.

Thanks for all the info, after the feedback and the test drive (of a GX4h) I decided the extras are not necessary for me for the money. I actually preferred the fabric seats in their GX3h too :)

Hi all,

Yes, five years on and brining this thread to life. I am looking at a used Outlander, pre facelift 2014/15. Read through here and thought I would go for the 3h, suits my needs. I don't need the sat nav, but from what I can tell in pictures the 4h has the touchscreen system, the 3h does not.

What are people's opinion on needing that, I thought that's where all the eco knowledge was displayed and while it comes down to how you drive the car, it would be good to know what's going on. Is the 4h worth it for the infotainment system?

Thank you

I've had a Gx3h from new in 2014. Never missed the central system as I have my own satnav to use on hire cars abroad.

However, not having the electric heater is a bit of a pain with passengers who want to be warm in winter, which means burning fuel even though I have battery available. Because of this my battery might not have been stressed as much as in a Gx4h :idea:
