Loving the style and ride


Nothing so far in the first 1000 k's.

Got it at a finance company sale for a 3rd of its new car price.

General Comments:

Seems to go well, and use very little fuel.

The 6 speed auto is a bit much on a small car, but it cruises great and will get going if you put your foot into it.

Visibility is great, and not too much light comes through the panorama roof.

The air con struggles a bit to climatise the cabin on hot days, and it takes a lot of learning as the car has so many features.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
