What's it like to drive?
Driving is a joy, when i just want to sit back and relax it eats up the miles, when i fancy a bit of fun or want to pass on an A road its handling is really good fun and feels like it is on rails round the corners it does need dropping a gear now and again as I have the diesel, the upside is i can travel round town in 2nd/3rd gear without having to change gear all the time.
What's it like to park?
Parking is fine although the boot is a little high which can be tricky if there is no point of reference behind you.
Living with it

Nothing has gone wrong so far, has just had its third service at which the dealer remarked they did not find a single problem on the car
What's most practical about your car?
I have seen over 51mpg on average for the last year, i do a mixture of driving on motorways, A roads and town. People bemoan the lack of boot space in sallons compared to the hatchbacks but I have not found this a problem at all.
Favourite gadget, option or accessory?
The radio is very good at changing the volume automatically depending upon speed and noise.
