Parkers overall rating: 3 out of 5 3.0

Everything is well laid out and easy to use. Instruments are particularly clear; large and backlit in blue. There are digital readouts for battery charge which become obsessive after a while. Driving position is relaxed and supportive seats are conducive to long distance driving.

There's plenty of head and legroom and IMA is well insulated against engine and road noise. IMA switches off at idle, so is silent. Some wind noise on the motorway. Seats are supportive and the rear can accommodate three adults for short trips.
