Parkers overall rating: 2.5 out of 5 2.5

An upright driving position gives good forward visibility, but the rearward view is rather restricted. Tall drivers shouldn’t have a problem with the driving position; the steering wheel adjusts for height. Most of the buttons and switches on the dash are simply laid out and within easy reach, but a few are awkwardly sited.

Interior is basic and looks cheap and rear legroom is ridiculously tight and it’s off the pace set by rivals in this class. On the motorway (and faster A-roads) the level of wind, road and engine noise is unacceptable, while anyone in the back will curse the lack of leg and shoulderoom. It’s better for the front passenger, but the seats could be more comfortable and do not have enough lumbar support.
