Overall rating

4 out of 5 stars


  • Class-leading steering and ride
  • Represents good value for money
  • Enhanced interior adds premium feel
  • Wide choice of engines and transmissions


  • Styling too conservative for some
  • Huge numbers will limit exclusivity
  • Annoyingly bulky audio stalk
  • Cheap materials hidden under seats, in footwells etc
