Driving it

3 out of 5

What's it like to drive?
Very easy and relaxing to drive. Although not a sporty handler (the sports setting just makes the ride lumpy) it is the consumate motorway machine. It is particularly good on the continent - just switch on the cruise control and relax.

What's it like to park?
Feels a bit large - I wish I'd specified the rear parking sensors.

Living with it

4 out of 5

Have you had any problems with the car?
Rear window glass has stuck and been replaced under warranty twice. New front brake callipers after 4.5 years. Geometry of front suspension means tyres do not wear evenly.

What's most practical about your car?
Space. There's so much luggage space.

Favourite gadget, option or accessory?
Button on key fob to open all four windows for ventilation.
