  • Driving it

    5 out of 5 5.0

    What's it like to drive?

    Extremely stable handling. Ride is a wee touch firm but that's off set by the handling. 6 speed auto box in tandem with the 2.2 diesel's torque gives lots of shuve. Manual mode especially so. Great visibility - slim A pillars, you see.

    What's it like to park?

    A breeze. Front and rear sensors are brilliant.
