Interior

Visibility out of the back window is rather terrible, hampered by the two huge head restraints for the back seat passenger. But I guess if you were driving solo you could fold the rear seatbacks down. And that gives you all of 755 litres of luggage space.

The footbrake is very high, forcing your knee into an unnatural angle under the steering column if you're a left foot braker and making you to push the seat further back than you really want it to be. It felt odd to start with, but I managed to get on with it. I don't think you could drive the DSG one footed because the accelerator pedal is too far below the brake pedal. You'd need to pull your leg right back up to get your foot on the brake, which you might not be able to do in an emergency.
