Driving it

4 out of 5

What's it like to drive?
Nice and quick. The seats are a little upright for my liking given that I am used to sitting back but I have found a fairly comfortable driving position. Just wish the seat could be tilted slightly towards you.

What's it like to park?
Unsurprisingly easy. the back window is a little small but there is no problem judging distance with the large mirrors
