A lot more car for a lot less money. Corny but true!

Beware the servicing costs if you opt for Longlife!

Performance

4 out of 5

It's easy to forget it's a diesel and it loves hills!

Reliability

5 out of 5

A sticky traction control switch has been the only fault in 65,000 miles, can't be bad.

Inverted snobbery rules.

Comfort

4 out of 5

This is the facelifted model with a bit more space in the rear. Arrive after hundreds of miles of driving without an ache.
