What does this car say about you?
That I like a car with sporty looks but with sensible running costs.
What do your friends / family / neighbours think of the car?
Everyone I know loves the car looks wise, friends who have traveled in back think its comfortable enough but 5 door would have been more sensible. Even when my dad borrowed it said he was amazed at just how nice a car to drive it was and he's not an easy man to please!
Would you buy this car again and why?
No, purely because next time I would buy a five door, ideally Mondeo size however i definitely wouldn't rule out buying a 5 door or SW version of this.
What are you likely to buy next?
Mondeo or C-Max size car.

Previously had a 207 lease car and liked economy in 1.6 HDI and wanted slightly bigger car.

Fair and honest.
What's it like to drive?
Car is nice to drive around town, on motorways is a very comfortable cruiser however turbo seems to take a while to kick in while trying to overtake.

Easy, but that's just me, my wife thinks its got too big a 'bum' and the pillars are awkwardly placed.
Living with it
Have you had any problems with the car?
No problems at all, sailed through MOT and not been in garage for any other reason.
What's most practical about your car?
For a 3 door car has a large boot with a cubby hole, a boot net attached to back of rear seats and a 'curry hook' on bottom of parcel shelf which is excellent if you are Transporting anything you don't want to be rolling about in there.
Favourite gadget, option or accessory?
Hard to pick one! I love the 17" rinjani alloys and also the centre armrest which adjusts in many ways so can comfortably be used whilst driving, also on longer journeys cruise control is a treat and finally I love the touch where scrolling text is displayed on radio screen where, messages from the station often telling what song is being played or what show is on.
