  • Driving it

    2 out of 5 2.0

    What's it like to drive?

    OK, bit gutless unless you flog it to death. 6th gear is a waste of time as it has no pulling power.

    For all people complaints about rear visibility I have found it ok to park, using mirrors and camera its not really an issue.
