It's nice and chunky so you feel safe in it. It feels powerful and tows very well.

Summary

5 out of 5

What does this car say about you?
That I'm an "outdoor/horsey" person.

What do your friends / family / neighbours think of the car?
Nice - but they probably wouldn't want one.

What are you likely to buy next?
Same again, or something similar.

Driving it

5 out of 5

What's it like to drive?
Lovely - can't fault it. Some people complain about their hard suspension, but it doesn't bother me because my other cars are old MGs with VERY hard suspension!

What's it like to park?
Quite easy because you're high up and it has good all round visibility.

The heater de-mists the screen faster than any other car I've owned.
