    Absolutely awesome day to day bus, the Diesel engine is quick to pick up its feet and has plenty of power for a B road blast! The recaro seats are comfy and supportive, making long motorway drags pleasant. The handling is absolutely brilliant, firm suspension, but not jiggly and nervous on British B roads. The build quality is good, but I wouldn't say it's in the same league as my previous car (Volvo),. The sync 2 navy system is good easy to use, but the speakers are poor for a premium model car. Also no cruise control as standard until you order the top model. All in all a good all round package that can cope with the everyday school runs, and give you a big grin on a weekend blast.

    Lovely car and looks great in Stealth Grey. Very comfortable and many mod cons. Two drawbacks - petrol consumption (to be expected with the sort of trips I usually take!) and no internal headlight leveling system. With the latter you have to adjust under the bonnet with Allen keys! For a car of this type I find that very surprising. Great acceleration that gets you out of any trouble that might occur. Bought it as a treat to myself really - not practical from the economy point. But then do I really care? 3 year warranty and I've extended that to 4 and bought a 4 year service plan

    Running Cost

    Fuel cost is high, but then it's mostly town trips. It does improve on longer journeys
