    Paul Maric
    Founder
    Paul Maric drove this car and these were their findings:
    Hits
    • Incredibly smooth six-cylinder petrol engine
    • Feels upmarket and premium inside the cabin
    • Generously equipped out of the box
    Misses
    • Third row can be a bit tight for bigger kids or adults
    • 48V mild hybrid system adds weight
    • Head-up display can take up too much room
