I chose this car because it was fuel efficient and I have an hours drive to work. It has certainly proven to be as efficient as promised. Performance is a compromise with efficiency & it does well with this balance, but it would never be a performance car. The comfort is satisfactory, though personally I prefer the more upright position of the crossover cars.. Reliability has been good though now at 70,000 miles plus it's had one or two faults. Space at the front is good. I'm over 6 foot & there's plenty of room. The boot is good for the size of car though it always annoys me when the back seat uprights fold down on to the rear seats. It's very unimaginative. In summary, it does what I want it to ie the running costs are economical.
