    What's it like to drive?

    Comfortable, reliable, even though it is only the 105bhp engine there is still plenty of power.

    What's it like to park?

    As I bought second hand the previous owner had reverse parking sensors fitted. I think without them it could be a bit difficult to park. Good tight turning compared to previous cars i've had.
