    After seeing the mediocre ratings this car has received I was actually quite sceptical buying one, however after buying/driving it I actually ask myself did they really drive one? The car itself as got all the toys even the biggest techy driver could wish for, it handles like it’s on rails and the performance is really quite impressive. You're able to change a whole raft of settings inc drive, steering even climate control so you really can personalise the car to your own preferences. However coming down from a diesel, running costs are a little higher, I’m averaging around 30-32 around town which isn’t that bad. Would I recommend it? Definitely, but I would say test drive one properly before you buy.....and see for yourself what a fun little beast this really is, and with its rugged looks it’s win win all the way.

    Brilliant car - very good looking and a good engine and interior. Reviews always concentrate on diesel versions - why on earth??? The petrol engine is quiet and plenty quick enough. Maybe there are too many toys, but you don't have to use them all - just use the ones that suit you! My only criticism is that when you use the paddle shifts it is too ready to revert to full auto.
