Parkers overall rating: 3.5 out of 5 3.5

In a nice neat, sensible nod to its VW Golf heritage, the dash is neatly laid out and simple to use. Drivers of all sizes will find a comfortable seating position.

One of the smaller of the family car bunch, room in the back is slightly limited. Legs won’t be able to stretch out much, but shoulder to shoulder room is okay.
