    CarWale's Take

    Good Things
    • Evocative looks
    • Supreme performance        
    • Practicality and advanced features
    • Thoroughbred Italian sedan packed with performance
    • Visceral soundtrack and lively gearbox
    • Its exclusivity stands out amongst its competitors 
    Could be Better
    • Unattractive CBU pricing
    • Competition offers better value
    • Low ground clearance 
    • Some cabin materials seem borrowed from cheap cars
    • Better value-for-money alternatives available 
    • Already started to feel dated
