• Summary

    5 out of 5 5.0

    What does this car say about you?

    It says I like a 4x4 and a larger than average vehicle.

    What do your friends / family / neighbours think of the car?

    They like it. Its easily the most capable car in bad weather in my street.

    Would you buy this car again and why?

    Probably. A bit expensive for what it is. I'd look to compare against the new Nissan X-Trail or Mistibishi ASX.

    What are you likely to buy next?

    I'd choose between Tiguan, Xtrail, ASX. Possibly Outlander, but that gets expensive.

  • Driving it

    5 out of 5 5.0

    What's it like to drive?

    Very good. DCC selector means I can alter the driving mode between Comfort, Normal and sport. Comfort mode appears to soften the suspension and make the steering lighter - good for motorway driving. sport mode appears to stiffen the suspension and tighten the steering - good for winding country/mountain roads.

    What's it like to park?

    Easy. Estate type design means you get good all round visibility from inside he car. Also the built-in media/Satnav (RNS510) comes with a reversing camera.
