            Good looking and comfortable. Drive is awesome. Servicing and maintenance is good but driving experience is not.

            Mr.

            I was eagerly waiting for this car but it turned out to be a complete disappointment, there is soo much of body roll in the car it always feels like you are bouncing around, the rare seat is one of the most uncomfortable seat in this segment with a straight back angle and steep bench angle. A total disappoint.
