A very enjoyable car with a lively engine and good handling. Spacious for its size.
Bodywork excellent, no rattles, good interior finishing and excellent paintwork. Many luxuries included, would have expected them in much more expensive cars.
Left front window pillar and center mirror obscures traffic approaching from the left (for tall persons?) Rear seats do not fold down flat enough for my personal requirements. When the bootlid is fully open, the space between the lid and the lower sill is somewhat restrictive for loading bigger objects. Air conditioning is an on-off system, better controls in this area would have been more acceptable than some of the other gimmicks (luxuries)in the vehicle, but I guess this is a matter of personal taste.
