Driving it

5 out of 5

What's it like to drive?
The performance figures certainly do not lie. As a load carrier on a motorway it is very comfortable and effortlessly quick and it is equally happy in town or when the roads turn twisty when the sports pack and manual gearbox come into their own.

What's it like to park?
Very easy, rear parking sensors are a god send and the ABS makes it light and very manoeuverable.

Living with it

4 out of 5

Have you had any problems with the car?
It needed a new clutch which was not covered by the warranty otherwise it has been fantastic.

What's most practical about your car?
Luggage space and room for 4 adults in relative comfort

Favourite gadget, option or accessory?
Automatic lights and wipers and heated front seats for those chilly winter mornings
