Summary:

Good bargain

Faults:

Security belts are hard to be worn.

Back seats are too small (poor space in height)

Poor torque at low rpm

Steer assist is too hard.

General Comments:

Good gearshift

The car is quite comfortable (in front seats) but is quite expensive (in urban cycle hardly you can achieve 10km/l). The car setting is quite hard, and this helps in sport style driving...

A little monster of the road. The reverse gear insertion could be more precise. More pockets in interiors would be very welcome. The speakers are not so good but the CDR 500 is excellent.
