AT A GLANCE

Herald Sun - Motoring - - FIRST DRIVE -

WHAT IT’S GOT

Sun­roof, leather-faced and heated front seats, power tail­gate, for­ward col­li­sion, lane de­par­ture, blind spot and rear cross traf­fic alerts, radar cruise con­trol, au­to­matic emer­gency brak­ing, nav­i­ga­tion, auto high-beam.

WHAT IT HASN’T

Shift pad­dles for the au­to­matic, en­gine stop-start, full-size spare, 12V out­let in boot.

OWN­ER­SHIP

Capped price ser­vic­ing seems a bar­gain at $180 a throw but this is ev­ery six months or 10,000km, half the in­ter­val of some ri­vals. It’s still a good deal over three years/60,000km. No road­side as­sist or free loan car, though.

WHAT WE LIKED

Top-shelf safety tech com­pa­ra­ble with many $100,000 cars, Toy­ota qual­ity, dura­bil­ity and re­li­a­bil­ity, lots of space, prac­ti­cal, com­fort­able, re­fined and easy to drive.

WHAT WE DIDN’T

You wouldn’t go for a fang just for fun, dash is ugly and in­ef­fi­cient, needs a full-size spare.
