Parkers overall rating: 2 out of 5 2.0

A fair stab at a quality interior as long as you like obviously fake wood plastered everywhere driving position is fine for most people but steering wheel doesn’t adjust for reach. Forward visibility is pretty good, but the back window is too high and at an angle for a good view.

Cabin space is reasonable as long as front passengers aren’t overly tall and the seats are comfortable even for longer journeys. In the back, two passengers can sit in comfort for a reasonable period of time, and it can accommodate three. Good head and legroom in the back.
