Any closer to your decision? Sounds like delivery could slow, and used car prices could go up if a general slowdown across the global demand for chips.

Maybe the MY21 is now worth more consideration? The google android stuff is really what it comes down to. I'd probably be in a similar dilemma, but having just bought an MY21 XC90, Sensus is still a very useable system, albeit with a few drawbacks! However, none of us have seen or used the XC60 Android implementation, so it's a bit of a stab in the dark to see if it's actually hugely better....

I would say my biggest complaint on Sensus is the fact they decided to incorporate the heater controls into Sensus. I'd rather have them as physical dials as much easier to use while driving.

This won't change with Android. The temperature controls will still be in the display as far as I can tell.

Oh, and the MY22 has hidden tailpipes - that will either float your boat or not

As for electric v fuel heater.....I have a fuel one, and I'd rather have the longer electric range without the electric heating eating into electric range. Horses for courses. OK, it's not as green, but going further on electric only is perhaps more green anyway!

All our electricity in Scotland is from renewables most days, so there's limited CO2 from the electricity generation at source.

Yeah, MY21 is definitely back into consideration, as I can see long delays coming in for all brands. I don't want to be keeping my current car past the end of August as the MOT & servicing dates will be getting much closer (October).

The heater may actually be a non-issue for us, as it is likely to be plugged in overnight anyway, so if it the pre-conditioning is needed it shouldn't adversely affect the battery range.

Typically I sent an email to the dealer yesterday to say we're not going to take the MY21 any further. Time to give him a call and eat some humble pie, he must think I'm a right idiot!

Not so sure about the heater. It kicks in sometimes during the journey with normal use of the aircon. Which means the electric will be used during the journey too.

As for the dealer, he just sees pound signs whatever you do No humble pie required! He's just a shopkeeper really (no offence to shopkeepers!).

I believe they are.

I don't mind the temperature control on the screen, but in the 2 weeks I've owned the car I now use voice control to set the interior temperature.

Press steering wheel button, say "Set temperature to 22 degrees" and bingo without the need to remove hands from the wheel.

I hear a lot of complaint re having to use sensus for all temp controls. And agree that can be very fiddly whilst driving.

But I do it all by voice command now. Heating, fan, heated seats and wheel etc. Works a treat.

Problem is if anyone else in the car is talking at the same time then you have no chance!!!

What's wrong with a good old fashioned knob

You can change temps/fan speed without looking. Voice control is a faff....

Decision made, I'll pick up a MY21 R-Design Pro on Saturday .

Figured that even if I run it for a year and make sure it is the right car for us, we should be able to then swap it out if the MY22 (or maybe even MY23) is that much better for not a huge amount of money. Fingers crossed the chip shortage will also have passed by then.

C'mon Saturday, hurry up

Congratulations. I think once you've been in the MY21, you'll probably think that getting an MY22 purely for android UI will probably not be worth it. You never know though.. Save your money for the MY23/24 when I'm sure the XC60 will be due a new model

Please see my earlier post, the XC90 isn’t getting the Android Automotive system in MY22 - presume this is because the new model is due next year.
