It's just there behind the front grille, so yeah, probably no different to most cars. Is it worth it? Probably not.

Never use my horn on my current car. Not expecting to use it on the new one.

I agree it’s an embarrassing “meek” sound. Pity the software update won’t fix it, it’s reported to turn down the very noisy indicator sound though

My 3 week old car was nearly taken out yesterday on a M4 roundabout when a car in the next lane decided to cut me up without looking or signalling. I thought the horn was a bit high pitch but very effective with a long blast and quite loud enough. It certainly stopped her crazy manoeuvre and saved the car being squashed between 2 vehicles.

The car really needs 2 horns. One, very polite, job to warn errant pedestrians we're behind them, and one proper job.

The present one, or any normal horn, sounds too aggressive if all you want to say is 'excuse me, you've wandered onto the road / car park and I realise you can't hear me' etc.

It wasn't as bad as I thought it might be but did make me laugh when I tested it on a quiet road.

I've had the car 8 months and have yet to use the horn, hope it works😉

It’s quite amusing… my four-year-old has a rechargeable ride-on Mini and his horn sounds more impressive than mine!
