Have you had any problems with the car?
I bought this car kept it 12 weeks then sold it at a loss of some £7k. I hated it the ridiculous 31" between rear wheel arches. The lack of space in the back. The ridiculous speech control which would spout a stream of numbers back at me and do nothing

What's most practical about your car?
Remote closure of Tailgate but tailgate could not be opened remotely until all the doors were open so while you are loading the boot a villain could unload the car

Favourite gadget, option or accessory?
ADAS absolutely superb, CMBS interesting, lane departure was a bit feeble !!Stupid having a sub woofer in the boot the dogs did not appreciate it
