  • Driving it

    4 out of 5 4.0

    What's it like to drive?

    Very easy and light - ate up long motorway journeys. Relaxed and safe - lots of attention to detail in the cabin - with solid interior design - high quality velour seating and very good plastics and not overstated wood effect trim. Hardly a sports saloon - nevertheless a strong 2.0 litre engine and a slick gearbox provided adequate performance, and reasonable fuel efficiency.

    What's it like to park?

    A little cumbersome but for a medium / large saloon, as long as you take your time, fine. Good weighted P/S for manoeveres.

  • Living with it

    4 out of 5 4.0

    Have you had any problems with the car?

    It was trouble free from 0 miles to 40,000.

    What's most practical about your car?

    Spacious, refined interior. I wonder why it didn`t have a proper hatchback, rather than a sedan boot - but the boot fitted all that was needed and had fold down rear seats for more luggage.

    Favourite gadget, option or accessory?

    Just standard air con and cruise control. Stereo CD (one slot- Panasonic) was of very high quality
