High performance and lots of accessories at a reasonable price


Lots of noise in the doors.

Oil pressure sensor not well mounted, caused false alarms (corrected by the dealer).

General Comments:

A carter protector is needed on dirt roads and bumpy zones. The soft springs and low height will push the car onto any obstacle in the road.

Very nice and soft driving on highways, good sense of control at 200kmph (125mph).

Very large boot space.

Although the front seats can be adjusted in many ways, they are not as comfortable as expected.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
