            Expert's Opinion

            Good Things
            • Striking design - Great exterior detailing, SUV stance and tall ground clearance
            • Easy to drive - Armed with a light steering/clutch, reasonably smooth gear shifter
            • Absorbent ride quality - Equipped with long-travel shock absorbers tuned to be soft
            • Compact footprint - Tight overall dimensions help with constraints to park/navigate
            • Powertrain options – Two small capacity frugal motors with manual/AMT gearboxes
            • Easy to drive nature
            • Good interior fit and finish
            • Spacious cabin
            Could be Better
            • Strict four-seater - Being compact, two adults can be seated comfortably at the rear
            • Not dynamically sorted - Slow steering, lots of up and down movement at higher speeds
            • Quality - Inconsistent levels of quality, fit and finish are below expectations
            • Bouncy high-speed ride quality
            • Needs more features across the line-up
