Good fuel economy, very generous cargo space, and the driver seat has a lack of comfort



General Comments:

Excellent fuel economy of 17Km per litre, but cannot achieve the fuel mileage noted in the owner's manual, which is 24 km per litre.

CVT transmission is very smooth.

This is no racing car, but the engine power is more than sufficient.

Very good cargo space, over 380 litres.

The driver seat lacks lumbar support, accelerator and brake pedals are a little bit too close to the steering wheel. It is difficult to get a comfortable sitting position for the driver. Passenger seats support are good.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
