A Dr Who Tardis

Small looking due to its styling but huge inside. When the eye has compensated for the styling you realize that its actually bigish on the outside as well but cleverly styled to look like a smallish car/van. Very good seating and great cubby holes in the floor and up above like a Scenic which is what i would imagine its heavily related to. 1.6 is no fireball but good lowish gearing enable it to not lose anything on the open road but probably could be a bit more economic if it had higher gearing...I like it how it is thou as nothing worse then a car that can't keep its speed on a hill. Great seating which fold forward giving a decent flat area. Does about 30 MPG around town trundling and about 40 on the open road if speed is constant. Uses 95 octane as pings a bit on the lower octane petrols. Is a tall van so not expecting a great handling car but is OK but its not a sports car so I don't expect that kinda handling. Legal road speeds its works fine. Ride thou is great. Very supple and smooth with not much road noise. Steering is nice and communicative and fine. Recommended as a good town vehicle if you need space and good economics.
