  • Driving it

    1 out of 5 1.0

    What's it like to drive?

    Horrible to drive, it's noisy and bumpy with uncomfortable seats. The gearbox in particular seems very badly ratio'd meaning the car never feels like it's in the right gear

    What's it like to park?

    Easy to park, it's quite small and has reverse park sensors - however it has a poor turning circle.

    What's most practical about your car?

    Being able to get six adults into such a small car

    Favourite gadget, option or accessory?

    The aircon is very good and controllable.
