  • Driving it

    5 out of 5 5.0

    What's it like to drive?

    I have driven many cars and nothing comes near this in almost every aspect. The handling is superb and the power delivery of the engine is amazing. The throttle response could be a little better.

    What's it like to park?

    Not as good as the previous seven. The turning circle is not as tight and the rear window is higher and harder to see out of.
