I have had this car for three and a half trouble-free years. Despite its size, it is a very easy drive.
It feels very agile in town - so much so that one has to concentrate to stay below the speed limit.
On the motorway it cruises effortlessly even when fully loaded and with roof boxes and bikes on top.
It is very refined with no engine noise except with aggressive accelerating.
The eight-seat option is very practical because the seats slide forwards very easily, so one can easily vary the load size. It is possible to have eight seats AND masses of load space simply by sacrificing some leg room - not a problem with kids.
My only complaint is that the absence of curtain airbags.
