A good comfortable and safe car to drive, but have to review the standard tyre


Paintwork not even at front grille.

Rust at bonnet welding point.

Damaged inner boot cover.

General Comments:

Picking up from start was not responsive.

Cruising was great except vibration starts to come in above 80 kph. Probably comes from the standard tyre, Pirelli P6000 185 x 60 x 14.

Cornering at high speed results in tyre skiing a bit.

Feels good and comfortable in the seat.

Vision quite good.

Creaking sound coming from dashboard and seat.

Wished the door could open wider.

Sound proofing could be improved upon.

No standard leather steering wheel available.

AfterSales parts quite expensive from dealer.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
