General Comments:

Bad things: The cabin is very noisy due to the mid-mounted engine. You can even feel the heat from the bottom of front seats. Sound insulation is also very bad. The car is too heavy for a 2 liter engine. Acceleration is very poor. The car is also too high if compared to other MPV's causing it to be very unstable during windy day. Petrol consumption is high (8.6 km/liter). The suspension system is very bouncy.

Good things: Cheapest MPV in town in the same category. Suitable for big family. Middle row passenger seats are comfortable if compared to saloons. Large leg room and head room if compared to saloons. It can even fit a bicycle if the third row seats are folded. The kids like the large windows very much.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
