Driving it

4 out of 5

What's it like to drive?
Sporty ride but not uncomfortable, plenty of power when required. Smooth and quiet in most situations. Parameter steering works well. Getting the driver's seat in the correct position is important to the quality of ride experienced. MPG is nowhere near brochure figures.

What's it like to park?
OK but do not really like the fact that the beeps do not start until you are very close. Looking for the warning lights cluster on the rear parking sensors (in the roof panels) behind you is distracting and unhelpful.
