  • Driving it

    5 out of 5 5.0

    What's it like to drive?

    An absolute dream. Acceleration is absolutely linear throughout the range.

    What's it like to park?

    Rear view is obviously limited but it's really no great challenge to park and parking sensors warn of any obstructions that may not have been noticed.

  • Living with it

    5 out of 5 5.0

    Have you had any problems with the car?

    Air-con faulty and, after an initial recharge, the condenser was subsequently found to have a tiny leak and was replaced under warranty.

    What's most practical about your car?

    Refined motorway cruising with oodles of power to spare, although the handling is far better than any other car I have driven.

    Favourite gadget, option or accessory?

    Dynamic mode.
