Driving it

1 out of 5

What's it like to drive?
Loud, unrefined and wallowy. The centre console intrudes right into the soft part of your knee just above your shin. OK if you are an American with auto, not so good with a manual.

What's it like to park?
You will need rear park as the windows are very high and it is extremely difficult to judge the distance.
