Well equipped, nice to drive
CVT automatic is awkward and indecisive
This Almera hatchback spin-off follows in the same vein as Scenic, Picasso and Zafira. Like most models in this class, it's practical, roomy and fits five with ease. It's well equipped and very user friendly and the ride is good, but there's too much bodyroll when cornering. The steering is precise and manual models have a slick gearchange.
