Driving it

4 out of 5

What's it like to drive?
Good fun, grips excellently, though a little body roll. Good low rev power, easy for lazy town driving, but also responsive at 70+mph for motorway driving, very smooth and comfortable.

What's it like to park?
Parking isnt too bad, the car is easy to manouver, but seeing the end of the bonnet is a bit hit and miss, mirror placement is excellent.
