The dials are perfectly sited and all major controls are ready for action and positioned to deliver a sporty ambience throughout the cabin. It’s relatively easy to get comfortable as the driving position can be tailored to suit most needs, but base models feel a bit spartan and disappointing.

Comfort for rear passengers isn’t bad for a coupe. Rear drive layout eats into rear space leaving rear passengers with acceptable rather than generous leg space. Granny might struggle to get in and out. Don’t even think of carrying more than three passengers in one.
