Which tyres are best for my Renault Captur?

Having ordered a new Renault Captur Signature I discovered that this model comes with mud and snow tyres that reduce mpg and are noisy. When I queried this with the Renault dealer he offered on delivery to replace them with the low rolling resistance tyres fitted to the models lower in the range.
My question is do you think this is wise or should I stick with the original tyres? I mainly drive in the London area.

Who told you that? In fact, all weather tyres are softer compound than 'low rolling resistance' summer tyres and are generally quieter as well as providing a smoother ride, together with all the other benefits. I've just done 11,000 miles on a set of Michelin Cross Climates with no ill effects no excessive wear, no effect on fuel economy.
