General Comments:

My wife's car.

Feels like space hopper after driving my other car (Subaru Impreza Turbo). Fits full size pram in boot without taking it to bits.

Rolls more than a car. 30mpg round town.

Front seats lacking in support slightly.

Panels a bit flimsy.

Very practical. Good visibility. Excellent levels of equipment (electric sunroof, windows, mirrors, a/c, heated mirors, lockable centre diff, surprisingly adequate radio). Group 9 insurance. Burns off Suzuki Vitaras.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
