Did you buy this car new or used?


How much did you pay? (including all on-road costs)


What were your needs when you bought this car? Has it fulfilled those needs?

Economic, 4-door, low maintenance

It met all those needs and then some. Only costs between $300-600 per year for me to run

What were your initial thoughts about the car? Tell us why it appealed to you.

I loved it. It felt premium for the price. Loved the look of it, and was surprised by how easy it was to drive.

What have you discovered since owning the car?

That it is the most economical car I have ever owned. Both to fuel and for maintenance. Driving electric took way les time to get used to, only about 15mins of driving and it was like I had always driven them.

What do you like/dislike about the car?

Dog mode, being able to leave the aircon on when you have dogs in the car. Sentry mode - the car monitors the inbuilt cameras to record any breakin, damage while you are away from it. It is so economic, only cost me a $200-500 per year to run. Love being able to watch Netflix in my car if I am waiting. There is nothing I dislike.
