    Typical MPG

    Smooth on the motorway, like driving a bigger car. Nippy and gets to speeds without any juddering. Six gears makes motorway driving much nicer. Front and rear visual and audio sensors are amazing and all-round visibility is good. Looks good inside and out and feels well-built. Decent air conditioning. My only gripes are the accelerator pedal sometimes feels a bit sticky. Also when I slow to a roundabout I have to move it down to 1st gear. Up hills too I have to really drop the gears. It's not so bad on the motorway at speed, moving down to 5th will suffice but on other roads at lower speeds I quite often have to drop to 2nd as it feels like it lacks torque. After about 2 years of ownership it has developed an annoying rattle inside the car, also an annoying buzz from the seat belt in my ear. The stated mpg is also way off, I generally get 46-48mpg average at 70mph, although on a few occasions in the warmer weather I’ve had it up to the high 50s but the mpg seems to have declined over time. Overall, it has been a competent motorway vehicle for work but due to the niggles that have developed I’ll be trading it in at the three year point rather than paying off the balloon end payment as originally planned.
    No breakdowns so far
    Nippy enough and nice on the motorway
    Running Cost
    Much less than stated but still fairly economical
