Interior

The rear seat folding arrangement is exactly what you need in an estate car. Not quite as good as Mazda's Karakuri buttons. But flop down the wider of the two backrests and it takes the whole luggage blind and dog guard with it, no fiddling, and leaves a decent size luggage deck 1,632mm long by 1,398mm wide.

You still get the old American style parking brake, on autos, at least, and if there was some way of holding the car without it (and without blinding the driver behind) I couldn't find it. No big deal, though. It's a proper drum brake and holds well against ‘Drive', so all you have to do is pull the release when the lights turn green and you can go.
