One good car


The ride is a bit too soft! I'm not driving as fast as I was while driving the 850GLE.

The steering is very heavy! not sure if it's common or just my car.

General Comments:

I just love the power from the VQ30DE motor! Smooth and silent.

Wish that I can go faster when I get the ride fixed.

Value for money and best engine performance in its class



General Comments:

Having owned a Volvo 850 2.5 GLE, the 2 litre Cefiro has been a real delight since day one. The VQ engine is excellent and a lot quieter than the Volvo. The suspension is too firm for my liking.

Overall, better value for money than the Volvo.

I currently drive a Mitsubitshi Galant VRV6. After an unintentional pop-in to a Cerfiro last week, I was totally impressed with its handling and suspension. Engine noise was well low, though the pick-up feels a little slow compared with the Mit-Galant. Nevertheless, I placed booking for 1 unit and I can't wait for the delivery. Great Car!!
