Parkers overall rating: 3 out of 5 3.0

Great visibility thanks to a commanding driving position. Easy to find a comfortable driving position as the steering wheel adjusts for height and reach and the pedals are well placed. Buttons and switches are intuitively placed and there’s plenty of stowage.

The old-school TD diesel is too noisy when it starts up, but soon quietens. There is little wind or road noise. Lots of legroom for the front and first rear row passengers, although the third row is only really for children. The seats are comfortable over short distances, but need more support for longer trips.
