Review
When i first saw the car, the exterior design captures me. It looks sleek and sporty. And the performance specs has all the writings of a performance car. It was a totally different design from the usual sedan. Its a sportback.

As i opened the door, the frameless windows caught my eye. Its a trademark of a sports car. Sitting inside, being tall, it has no problem fitting myself with lots of rear legroom for my rear passenger.

Once inside, the virtual cockpit display is a wow. Also the touchscreen cum gesture control head unit. It was modern. Another thing i notice was the frameless rear view mirror. It looks very sleek and blends into the interior.

The drive was smooth. No hesitation on acceleration at all. The rev and speedo simply climbs as fast as u depress the accelerator. It was a quiet drive, excellent noise and vibration dampering. The only sound noticeable was from the exhuast as i put my foot down. Very reassuring drive, being a 4 wheel drive. Making a u-turn was effortless, turning radius was good.

What I like
Exterior design
Spacious boot
Wide interior(able to accommodate 3 adults side by side)
2.0T engine
Silent drive
Virtual cockpit
Firm handling
LED headlights

What I do not like
The price
Fixed interior colour choice, only black
Lack of spare wheel
Lack of adaptive cruise control (hands off autonomous driving)
Lack small storage spaces for sunglasses
Lack of wireless charging
Lack of wireless connectivity for Android Auto
The brand
