An all-round great tourer


Absolutely nothing. This car was purchased one day and did a 1600km non-stop journey the next without any problem.

General Comments:

The manual is more fun than the tiptronic auto. This car has loads of room and the size of the boot is amazing.

It has plenty of power for overtaking triple road trains.

Steering on the Sportivo is better than the standard models.

The stereo is excellent quality and the 6-stacker CD is easy to use.

The Sportivo may not have the sheer power of the Ford Falcon, but it is much better finished and is a more comfortable drive.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
