A very good all round compact SUV


One wheel bearing needed replacing in 2008, after around 23,000 miles. Replaced by an independent garage for little more than £100.

General Comments:

Ticked all the boxes for a rural runabout, but excellent on motorways too.

Perfect size for comfort and not too big to park it easily.

Full of comfort features.

Effortless on long journeys and surprisingly manoeuvrable on the road.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
