Right guys,i had a run in one these today.

Its around 170bhp with 250nm of torque. Well the drive was nice,can feel enough torque when launching [ no mad launches,behaved a bit,was a test drive :p ].

The steering response was very good,being a rear wheel drive the front wheels were doing exactly what they should. With three adults in the car and AC on,i was amazed with the acceleration.And behold,its a garett powered engine.

With the different settings.comfort,eco and sport you can choose what type of response you want from the car. Tried throwing it off balance on a round about but traction was not lost [ slight tyre screeching ].

As for rear leg space,a 6 footer like me felt a bit cramped! But strictly two adults in the back seat. Maybe a child of 6-8 years old can fit in the middle.
Boot space is reasonable.

The car is bigger than the older generation. Its very obvious when comparing both cars side by side.

For a daily drive its fine and a few occasional spirited drive.

The price tag jumps a bit when you start adding the various never ending list of options!

Anyone with some reviews,please feel free to add some comments.

Very nice cars mate, and very well built. Been in a 120d and even they shift abit. My cousin had a 125d hartige tuned( spelling ) and that was an absolute monster
