Low profile style with a stunning performance



General Comments:

Very good engine performance : high punch from a small v6.

With the electronic suspension in "sport" mode it can take winding roads well. If you tune to "normal" the car become a boat.

Some cricket noises are found in the cabin, but only until you turn the Bose 200Watt audio on.

The style has two realities : A happy "jaguaresque" front grille and a sad horizontal rear. Too bad the bad side is the most visible to the other drivers.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
