Summary:

The best car money can buy in this class

Faults:

A lot of electrical and electronic problems since it was new.

Inadequate headlights.

Insufficient performance of the air conditioner especially in the warm Greek summer.

Generally the quality of the electrics and electronic parts is below the standard of the car's class.

General Comments:

Very good and safe roadholding, comfortable suspension, good brakes and especially the ABS.

Maybe a shorter gearbox would better suit the adequate engine performance.

Very comfortable and spacious interior with minor ergonomic defects.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
