  • Driving it

    4 out of 5 4.0

    What's it like to drive?

    Excellent both in cities and motorways as long as you keep the foot really light on the pedal. normally get 50+ mpg in city driving during summers but went down to 45 in winters with the need for heating. motorways can clock 57-58mpg if you keep the speed within 70mph. start pushing over 80 and may struggle to hit 50, but still very good.

    What's it like to park?

    Nothing difficult about parking. a rear parking sensor would be nice as standard though.

    Auxiliary socket to play MP3. no need to buy blue tooth of fm transmitter.
