Parkers overall rating: 3 out of 5 3.0

All controls are within easy reach of the driver, further contributing to its ease of use, and visibility is generally very good. The dash has a rather simple design, but looks reasonably modern and the controls are straightforward to use. Steering wheel and seat height adjustment is optional on most models.

Interior space is improved over previous generations, but it’s still tight in the back for a pair of adults. There’s a fair bit of wind and tyre roar at motorway speeds, but the ride’s only really disturbed by the worst roads, managing for much of the time to feel like a larger car. Some find the front seats uncomfortably hard although those fitted to sportier models offer more support.
