Driving it

5 out of 5

What's it like to drive?
It,s a dream to drive, smooth and comfortable and feels like you are driving something much smaller. Equally at home on motorways, A or B class roads.

What's it like to park?
It is easy to park particularly with front and rear sensors and of course the rear camera. Because it tends to fill the alloted parking areas particularly in supermarkets I always park in the quieter areas to avoid getting hit by other vehicles doors.
