What does this car say about you?
Grandad driving? Thank God I never paid for the car I would be disappointed!

They think it's a massive step down from my audi a3. Often have a laugh and say you borrowing your grandads car again.

Never would want to drive this car again.

What are you likely to buy next?
Newer a3 or an a5 if I fancy something bigger.

Driving it

1 out of 5

What's it like to drive?
Terrible to drive. Just too heavy and not enough power to make it move. (for me anyway) Suspension just too soft for my liking, leans over so much in bends! Ontop of that it looks like someone built it and at the end though ops I haven't given the car a screen so just stuck in on the middle of the dash! Horrible! It's not even touch screen either and horrible to navigate.

What's it like to park?
Fairly easy for me but I can see some people struggling. Really cannot see much out the back!
