    What's it like to drive?

    I have enjoyed driving it, although not a performance car it handles well. With plenty of acceleration, comfort and space.

    What's it like to park?

    Could probably do with parking sensors, as rear visibilty is hampered. I have not bumped it when parking!!! and I've put it in some tight spaces.
