Summary:

Comfortable

Faults:

Coolant leak (minor repair).

Rumbles when you release the gas pedal from high RPM (minor repair).

General Comments:

Lots of space on the back seats. More than in the Audi. 10 cm of space between my knees and the back of the front seat when my tall friend is driving.

Quick when you drive alone or with one or two passengers. But you can really feel the difference when you are four adults with some luggage. It's still OK though.

Very silent at speeds below 100 km/h, but noisy at higher speeds.

I've had some problems with the car in the short time I've owned it. If you're buying one, test it carefully first.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
