Driving it

5 out of 5

What's it like to drive?
It's hard to believe the engine is a 1.2, sits quite happily at 70 showing just over 2000 revs and is very quite when on the move, only a little bit of road noise can be heard.

What's it like to park?
Not to bad, parking sensors on the rear help as does the display on the infotainment screen which changes to show the parking radar.

Start/stop, hill hold control and duel zone climate control, the touch screen infotainment is very easy to use.
