Parkers overall rating: 3 out of 5 3.0

Interior ambience mirrors the exterior in being visually unexciting. However it is well screwed together and easy to use. Some people do find the driving position to be rather odd, so make sure you can get comfortable in one.

A couple of adults will fit in the back although they won’t feel spoiled for rear legroom. A look at the roofline will confirm that headroom is reduced in the back. Seats are quite comfortable and the ride quality won’t upset passengers.
