Our expert review

See what our expert review team say about this car

Sadly, this is the GEN-2 saloons weakest area – you can’t help but feel the interior is like a step back in time to cars of a decade ago. The Chevrolet Cruze has a much more modern cabin, while the more expensive, but wholly mainstream, Vauxhall Astra, Ford Focus and Volkswagen Golf are leagues ahead in their interior quality. The plastic dashboard feels brittle and scratchy, while the upholstery looks out-dated. Soft seats prove comfortable, so long as you are under six feet tall, at which point there’s a lack of headroom. Rear legroom is good, but head space is an issue here too. Top models get a black and red steering wheel and leather trim, which is far better, but still disappointing.
