Parkers overall rating: 3 out of 5 3.0

Easy to get comfy and lots of toys to play with. The driver’s seat is highly adjustable, so it’s easy to get comfortable, while the five-door has a high driving position for a commanding view of the road. In ‘city’ mode (which makes the light steering even lighter), even those with the frailest of wrists should be able to park confidently. Parking sensors are available, too.

Good visibility and a sensible pedal layout.

Easy to access the back seats in the five-door, but it’s more of a struggle in the three-door. Space in the five-door is good for two adults, but it’s more of a squeeze in the three-door. Picnic tables in the back of the seats are great, but rob space. Stilo is refined at speed and the materials used give the cabin an upmarket look.
