Fantastic car. Only had it for 7 weeks, but covered 4000 miles already. Car travels Up-wards of 500 miles a week all motorway driving.
Performance was surprising for not being a turbo diesel and regularly sees up-wards of 55 miles per gallon.
Has tow bar fitted an it has already been used to tow my race car twice (once to Ireland) and it pulls really well and puts my friends 1.8 petrol Ford Mondeo to shame when it is towing.
Torque available form the engine is outstanding pulls well from 60 to 90 miles per hour. Chassis is great and as my girlfriend lives at the end of a nice twisty country road I regularly get to put this fantastic tight responsive chassis through its paces.
Cabin is nice and spacious and can swallow five adults with ease. Boot is more than ample and easily handles two to three large cases.
Only fault is I wish it had a sun roof. And don't you just love that radio control on the steering column.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
