I have had this car as a company vehicle for almost 3 years now,and have to say it is the best car I have had the plaesure to drive. If you like the "wolf in sheeps clothing" type image in your cars then this fits the bill nicely. It is very easy to drive and all the controls are light especially the steering which some may say is overassisted, but it is simple to park and you can go from full lock to full lock with one finger !!I have had many challenges at lights and on fast roads over the last few years from hot hatches and young pretenders who are shocked at the power that this car generates ,there are not many cars that It cannot keep up with and that is a reassuring feature of this vehicle. Handling is superb,very surefooted,has all the latest gadgets, talking on board computer, electric everything and looks very sleek too. I hope the new model is half as good , I would recommend this as a very wise second hand buy, as for a 3.0 litre car it is relatively economical too. Happy motoring.
