Summary:

Good ride and superb handling

Faults:

It has bad fuel burning efficiency when the engine is not warm up which means that after starting the engine from cold it is not advisable to turn off the engine within a short while. If you do that you will get the following scenario

For the next crank the engine will be vibrate a lot for around 20 seconds (till all the excess fuel being burned off).

General Comments:

It has superb road handling especially at the high speed.

The rear leg room is rather small, but the cargo volume is big enough.

The layout below the bonnet is neat and tidy.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
