I love this car, so much so that I've kept it past the end of my current contract and am very reluctant to hand it back. It comes with lots of tech and I've not had any problems with it, with the exception of the hands-free not understanding me every now and again. Lane assist can be annoying on country lanes so I have it permanently switched off and only had to do this once, so no need to do it every time you turn the car on. Loads of space inside, for example, I am able to fit 4 camping chairs, a cricket kit, a full golf club set and a children's golf club set in the boot and still have room to spare. Doors all have storage pockets and the centre console is a good size. The car itself looks great and I struggle to find anything that ticks all the boxes like it does within its price range.
What's the one thing you like most about your car?
It's sleek design and practicality
If you could improve one thing, what would it be?
Hands-free struggles with spoken commands

It’s reliable but let down by a number of very annoying ‘features’. Very whiny gearbox from new - replaced under warranty but still has a slight whine at certain speeds. The software randomly changes language which also changes the speedometer to km/h. One time, I couldn’t reset it back to mph. Cruise control won’t activate below 25 mph, why? Lane departure warning beeps all the time and must be deactivated every single time you use the car. Opening the driver's door with the keys in the ignition sets off a loud warning - why? The engine sounds terrible above 3,000rpm so it’s not nice to drive. The car was leased and has now been returned. Don’t miss it.
What's the one thing you like most about your car?
Metallic grey paintwork.
If you could improve one thing, what would it be?
Fix all the problems with the software and allow more control to permanently disable LDW.

Bought 2-year-old car with a very low 4,850 miles on the clock, after owning for very short time I find the car will not go into 6th gear (top) unless doing close to 60mph, this is all very well and good on a motorway but on normal roads following commercial vehicles etc and you drive along in 5th gear...unless you put into manual and the car will then go into 6th at 45 mph...very frustrating. The car is equipped with stop/start technology...if only it would work, when been stood for as couple of days the keyless entry will not work, I reversed into a car...very gentle square bumper to bumper and the warning reverse bleepers did not operate...been in local Vauxhall garage three times now and booked again for next week, seems they cannot rectify the problems...they need Vauxhalls say so on what to do...all about cost again..am I happy....NO...if the problems did not exist this is a lovely car but not outstanding, poor storage inside etc but on the upside its very practical and nice looking...
