I've never really understood the need for a camera AND rear parking sensors. I have the Xcellence and can't remember the last time I looked at the camera.

On my Skoda tho I have sensors with cross traffic alert which is the best solution of all and makes driving other cars a real pain. Not sure why the safety authorities don't make it compulsory on every car.

Basically if you drive or reverse out of a parking bay and your view is restricted by a van or large SUV parked alongside, the system will warn you if any cars / pedestrians / cyclists are approaching from the left or right and will autobrake the car if you ignore the warning.

The downside of course is when I jump in to another car, forget I don't have cross traffic alert and recklessly pull out of a bay because there's no warning. :oops:

Correct decision in my opinion if you really miss the reversing camera then you can get it fitted at a later date as it is know in the accessories document and can be dealer fitted.

I loved the FR looks but the kit level meant I went straight to excellence. The issue with no reversing camera + 360 was a biggy for me as I reverse everyday into my spot and the view out the back hindered this (its a very tight spot). Also I wanted ACC and Lane assist, which the FR doesn't come with.

The FR was only just coming out when we got ours, but I'm sure i would still go for the Xcellence, we have the 19" wheels that i feel makes it look the best of both worlds.
i use the 360 camera a lot but the wife not so much.

Am still confused 🤷‍♀️.. You can’t add the reverse camera into the 2019 FR Sport as I have asked this question ..I have only done 24k over 4 years so am wondering if I can live without the reverse camera

Officially no you can't add it, however if your prepared to run cables and do some coding it should be possible.

Hi Lorr1888

I have just ordered a FR Sport as company lease car, I currently have camera on my car and also worry about missing it but budgets don't run to the Xcellence so hopefully get used to it, still very much looking forward to driving the car.

Out of curiosity what delivery time have you been quoted, my lease company are saying 12 weeks !!
