Seems a bit thirsty at times, but will put up with it rather than get a diesel.

Midnight black the best colour by far. Looks on par to others.

Bucket seats good and comfy. No complaints from the back, either.

Still on the drive, I think!

Service

4 out of 5

Dealer ok. Did try to say a defective headlamp unit was not covered by warranty (claiming wear and tear), but saw sense in the end. Servicing costs are average.

Problems

Bodywork
Petrol flap not seating properly. Replaced under warranty.
