A great estate car with a discreet touch of class
Very good road handling: handled like a sports car on corners.
Not a dragster, but very good overall performance considering the speed limitations in Switzerland... and can still easily reach 200 km/h. on German highways.
Very silent and comfortable drive.
Use to much motor oil when driven at high rev (almost 1 litre for 1000-1500 km...) but this happens quite frequently with 16 valves 4 cylinder engines.
Very good looking streamlined body
Incredibly large inside (estate car)
Fuel consumption with the 2.2l gasoline Ecotec engine is very reasonable: roughly 8 litres/100 km. at an average 120km/h on highway, which is very low for such a big car.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
