Good points: comfortable, economic, safe, good acceleration & brakes, reasonably reliable (some minor electronic problems). Irritations: Floating console looks good but not wholly practical, it's too low down and one has to take eyes off the road too much to use buttons etc. All instruments/knobs should be high up on the dash so eyes can quickly revert to driving visuals. Fog light buttons are hidden low R behind the steering wheel (for me), cannot find them on dark/foggy night - so dangerous, they need moving to high up on dash for easy visual/quick operation. Although all instruments and floating console look good, practically, I don't think they work - sorry! Air con/heating controls are too complicated, I wish they were simpler to adjust. Road holding in snow/ice was vastly improved by the change to appropriate winter tyres for last winter - a huge success, I recommend these to anyone who has to drive in these conditions. Hopelessly small boot..., it's okay for a couple as a rear seat can be dropped for large luggage space, but definitely not for family with pushchair, infant clobber, etc., due to the odd boot shape. Very nice car otherwise, I've had mine from new for 5 years.
