"Refined Drive"

Exterior and Interior

Outside the vehicle looks classy from the outset. The slightly pointed rear is reminiscent of a Jaguar. This car is a gorgeous mid blue and just looks fantastic. Inside the feeling of class continues. The dash sweeps round into the doors giving a feeling of being cocooned. The comfort level is good as is the level of equipment.

Performance and Economy

This is the 220BHP model with a 2.0l turbo engine and it's quick, really quick! Great fun to drive and puts a smile on my face every time. Performance: Hmmmmmmmmm. I didn't buy this car to save the planet (fortunately). I have a short commute to work so the high running costs are not the end of the world. It is thirsty though.

Like to Drive

As per my previous comment it's great, really, really great. Throttle is responsive and the steering reacts well. Press the Sport button and everything changes. The suspension stiffens up and the throttle and steering become even more reactive. Oh and the dash lighting changes from white to red, which gives it a kind of demonic look. <

Faults and Repairs

None to date. I've only had it five days. There were a couple of minor issues, when it was delivered, but the garage is having it in next week to rectify these. These were a non working passenger side window switch and a slight, but annoying, rattle from the engine compartment.
