Driving it

4 out of 5

What's it like to drive?
Not bad for a 1.8 auto! Fairly quick off the mark and in-gear acceleration better than some people might have you believe

What's it like to park?
Well, better then my Volvo S60 as the turning circle id good! Rear visibility is not the best though.

Living with it

Panoramic roof and optional AMG wheels
