  • Driving it

    What's it like to drive?

    Fantastic to drive, steering is light and precise, decent acceleration and comfortable firm seats. Ride is very controlled and handling is exceptional. For a 15 year old car it is remarkably well built with no rattles or trim falling apart.

    What's it like to park?

    Small so not bad. Visibility isn't great to rear but I'm used to parking a massive estate car so this is tiny in comparison.
