My, it’s high

The driv­ing po­si­tion is good, with good er­gonomics and seat com­fort, com­bined with light steer­ing.

Fun run

En­joy a touch­screen dis­play, auto cli­mate con­trol, Blue­tooth and cruise con­trol, with a Pi­o­neer in­fo­tain­ment sys­tem.

Ramp it up

It’s fash­ion­ably cute, un­der­stated with a quiet el­e­gance. Turn it around and en­joy the sur­pris­ingly cute back­side.


The body length is just un­der 4m, but feel free to stretch out – there’s plenty of leg room in the front and rear.

Help­ing hand

The rear park­ing sensor no­ti­fies driv­ers when they’re too close to ob­jects and keeps tabs on the teen driver with its av­er­age-ve­hi­cle-speed dis­play.
