Parkers overall rating: 3 out of 5 3.0

Some drivers may not get on with the driving position – there’s not enough adjustment and the seats can feel flat. The interior looks a little bland – there’s just too much black plastic. However, most of the controls are in logical places and it’s quite comfortable for middle-distance drives.

A fairly roomy interior, with plenty of light. However, rear legroom is on the tight side and front headroom is limited too. Cabin could be better insulated against wind, road engine noise.
