Driving it

5 out of 5

What's it like to drive?
Awesome. Very easy to drive in town , light steering, light pedals, light gearbox and will happy sit at 70 on a motorway but when the mood takes you (country road) it's got great power, pulls no matter what gear your in, steering and gearbox though very light have fantastic feedback and it sticks too the road like it's on rails.

What's it like to park?
Absolute doddle.

Sports seats (very supportive on long journey and grip you in the seat when driving fast) Door sills with VRS wrote on. 6 Speed gearbox (fantastic for economy).
