Parkers overall rating: 4 out of 5 4.0

Even large drivers should be able to get comfy behind the wheel – there’s ample adjustment to the driving position. A sober and functional and attractive interior with everything close to hand.

Like a Saville Row suit inside: good looking and high quality. High quality plastic used throughout to create a subtle, but sophisticated fascia and dashboard look. Good seats and lots of space for all passengers.
