Hidden under-floor storage in boot is spacious and very useful. All seats are adjustable for rake and have high backs which means it is comfortable for all passengers.

Living with it

5 out of 5

Have you had any problems with the car?
Have just handed it back after 140,000 miles because turbo went and lease company would not pay for repair. Prior to that, with the exception of a few bulbs and a sensitive alarm and immobiliser (which we discovered was being interfered with by our wireless door bell), we have had no problems with it. Incredibly reliable, we do 28K miles a year.

What's most practical about your car?
Hidden under-floor storage in boot is spacious and very useful. All seats are adjustable for rake and have high backs which means it is comfortable for all passengers.

Favourite gadget, option or accessory?
No sure why there are 18 separate cup holders but the ones in the fronmt pop in an out which works well.
