Well equipped, good satnav and reversing camera, slick gearbox and comfortable to drive long distances. Huge boot. But 1.8 engine is sluggish, runs out of puff too easily, has plenty of flat spots and lacks any torque. To get anywhere on fast roads you have to accelerate to 4000–5000+ revs and use the gears. Fuel consumption started at 32mpg when I got the car at 20,000 miles but is now over 40mpg using only high detergent Shell and BP, despite driving at high revs. Oil consumption is 1 litre per 4,000 miles, which is usual for this engine. The engine is crying out for a turbo or supercharger or 50hp more.
