Surprise us! Tell us something surprising about this car?
It’s cheaper to lease than a Ford Mondeo.
Love the auto high beam lights, how it handles and how fast it is.
The LED headlights with always on main beam are fantastic.
When cornering you put the power down and the car just bites into the corner and sails through confidently. Great handling!
Acceleration from rest is astonishing.
