    My car

    I have recently taken this car for a test drive and I'm affraid the salesman had trouble getting it back to the dealership.

    My first feeling about the car was how safe it feels and as I will regularly be transporting very important little people. That was a main issue for me.

    Having also sat in the back, though, I'm not too sure what anyone under the height of 4ft might be able to see as the raised door trim restricts your vision a bit. Fortunately it has no effect from the driving position, which is extremely comfortable.

    The drive is smooth and the seats firm. Unfortunately I didn't get to turn the ESP, off but as I have now bought one I will come back with a new review.
