OWNERSHIP Servicing costs $1255 over four years/60,000km, with intervals of 12 months/15,000km. Free loan car and 12 months’ state auto club membership at each service. WHAT WE LIKED One of the better front-drivers in the class, with a punchy, refined 1.5-litre turbo, tidy dynamics and compliant ride. Sophisticated, easy to use infotainment with seamless connectivity. Great value worksburger safety tech pack option. Comfortable driver’s seat. Expansive forward vision. WHAT WE DIDN’T Looks dated and boring outside and the dash design is hysterical. Navigation played up on test. Smaller boot in fiveseater mode and a narrower rear seat than most rivals. Can feel a bit top-heavy in tight corners. High brake pedal. Hard to reach open tailgate. Short warranty.
