5 out of 5

What does this car say about you?
I'm not sure, but I'd like to think that once someone gets to know the car, they appreciate the understated quality of the vehicle.

What do your friends / family / neighbours think of the car?
Some prefer a more classical trim (wood and piped leather), others love it. Some are just plain scared when you put it in dynamic sports mode.

Would you buy this car again and why?
I've only had it a short time so I'll reserve final judgement for now. Intial indications are excellent and it appears to be built out of granite.

What are you likely to buy next?
No idea, but that's what makes life interesting isn't it ?

May 2011

Subtle performance

Excellent, prestige independent in Essex

Driving it

4 out of 5

What's it like to drive?
It has the ability to transition from solid cruiser into a virtual missile. The handling is predictable with the 4 wheel drive but at over 5m long, it's not 'nimble'.

What's it like to park?
I've driven large cars forever so no problems. The parking system is excellent and clear.

Living with it

5 out of 5

What's most practical about your car?
Comfort, rear space and huge boot

Favourite gadget, option or accessory?
one touch fingerprint memory sets seats, mirrors, radio preferences, phone lists, even your climate settings.. what a toy.
