Overview

"BRILLIANT CAR"

Exterior and Interior

Plenty of space and leg room and will fit 5 adults but a bit of a squash and the smaller ones had to travel in the back! Put the seat down and you get loads of room, ideal for travelling and you can fit a roof rack for even more space!

Performance and Economy

Brilliant, although the more you pack in obviously the less miles you get, fully loaded we still got 44 miles to the gallon on a trip to France. I use this car every day for work, shopping and recycling trips, we traded in our large people carrier when the kids went to uni and have managed with this ever since, its an awesome little car that taken us and our two dogs to the South West of France four times a year and does a brilliant job bringing all the wine back!

Like to Drive

Very good to drive although not very aerodynamic and suffers in windy conditions especially when fully loaded. On regular drives to and from work it's brilliant. The seats can get a little uncomfortable on long drives but otherwise are fine. With a heavy load it's a little wavy when travelling at speed but that's probably because we have overloaded the car in the first place. <

Faults and Repairs

Only thing that needed attention is the boot lock, it's been replaced but has corroded again within the year! I can't really comment on any other faults and repairs as there have not been anything wrong with the car other than the boot lock!

Overview

"BRILLIANT CAR"

Exterior and Interior

I love the front of my car, it's smart, clean and much newer looking then the other models. The inside is clean, and comfortable, the back seats could be made a little more comfortable but i still like it.

Performance and Economy

The performance of this car is really great, whether its to nip to the shop and back or to travel all the way back to uni this car runs really smoothly and is a great first time car. I hardly ever have to put petrol in it an everyone comments on how well it runs.

Like to Drive

Really smooth and such easy steering, it also has the option to put the steering into city mode to help the owner park into tricky spots. As this was my first car it was incredibly easy to get used to and makes driving easy, whether its just down the road or on long trips. <

Faults and Repairs

I have had no major faults with this car, the wheel trims fall off constantly but I would suggest that is not the fault of the car but the trims themselves.
