Overall rating

4 out of 5 stars


  • Superb driving dynamics thanks to all-wheel-drive stability
  • Entertaining driving experience and warbling exhaust note
  • Understated good looks with some sporty styling
  • Truly capable all-round as both a performance car and family wagon


  • Dated interior beginning to seem a bit cheap
  • Complex, sometimes contradictory range of driver aids
  • Some wind and tyre noise at motorway speeds
  • Standard seats are very bulky and less comfortable than optional 'shell' seats
