    October 2012

    Looks different and I didn't know anyone else that had one.

    What was the dealer like?

    Very friendly, he didn't want to budge on the price but I managed to haggle a second set of wheels and tyres for the same price. Very helpful with the car and had all of the paperwork and documents.

  • Driving it

    5 out of 5 5.0

    What's it like to drive?

    It's fun to drive in the low gears with good acceleration but when you hit 300+ revs this thing is a rocket. it cruises nicely on the motorway and the suspension is great.

    What's it like to park?

    It is very easy to park being a hatchback with good visibility of the front of the car.

    Have you had any problems with the car?

    There has been no problems whatsoever with it and it sailed through it's MOT first time with no advisories.

    What's most practical about your car?

    There is plenty of space in the front and back with ample storage in the boot. We have been able to seat four 6''2ft+ lads with bags quite comfortably.

    Favourite gadget, option or accessory?

    I love the interior of the car as it comes with sporty seats as standard which are very comfy and hug you as you drive. It also has Rover's own traffic system built into the clock which is very helpful .
