Summary

5 out of 5

What does this car say about you?
That I am not a BMW/Mercedes drone.

What do your friends / family / neighbours think of the car?
Love it.

Would you buy this car again and why?
Yes, maybe the bigger engine as the 2.2 with 8 speed box means it is always changing gear.

Driving it

5 out of 5

Goes like a train. Not as fast as the 3.0L but still pretty quick for a car this size. That and the handling make journeys of any length a pleasure.

What's it like to park?
Easy. Sensors all round and a camera at the back.
