What was your dealership experience like?
Very professional. The adviser knew all my details before I arrived so there was no confusion and we were offered a choice of models to drive, all of which were on site.


Rate your dealership experience out of 5.


What were your first impressions of the car?
Very striking interior, very minimal with a large central screen. Seemed well built and felt very solid. Minimal controls. Very comfortable.


Positives – List 3 or more things you liked about the car.

  • I liked the interior design but the white interior wasn’t one I’d choose
  • The actual performance on the road was a pleasant surprise, not what I was expecting at all. I’ve never driven a car with this sort of acceleration and that includes Porsches etc.
  • It felt like a normal car handled like a normal car and responded like a normal car
  • I liked the 1 pedal driving system which brakes when you ease off the power but takes a little while to get used to.


Negatives – List 3 or more things you didn’t like about the car.

  • Nothing major to be honest but I did feel the central display with all the controls for heating etc. a little cluttered and not immediately obvious but I think you can customise it to your preference.
