  • Driving it

    5 out of 5 5.0

    What's it like to drive?

    Very good to drive, good feel and feedback when steering the car. All around involving and great to drive. The 2.0 sport is pretty quick too! Good on motorways, plenty of torque so you won't find yourself shifting down gears too often.

    What's it like to park?

    Not so bad. The car isnt too big so parking isn't a major issue really. Although i think the hatch would probably be easier to park, bit smaller and a better view out of the rear.

    4 doors and enough room inside for adults in the back. Without been too big a car.
