Driving it

4 out of 5

What's it like to drive?
Handles well with stiff suspension and pulls very well in the first three gears. Nice on the motorway with bags of torque for easy overtaking.

What's it like to park?
Parking sensors and neat little button that lowers the passenger mirror make it easier than an estate.
