Summary

3 out of 5

What does this car say about you?
Refined, successful, but in need of 4 doors.

Impressed

Would you buy this car again and why?
No, fuel economy is poor for a diesel due to auto box and power, driving dynamics and image not enough to overcome premium running costs and lack of practicality.

Premium 4x4.
