Driving it

4 out of 5

What's it like to drive?
Reasonably fast, can do 100mph fairly easily and also handles pretty well. Easy to park. Quite slow on initial acceleration. Have to use the gears a fair amount being a relatively small diesel.

Not the best, but reasonable.

Low running costs, yet quite a big car feel.

Quite a good sound system as standard.
