So little needed to make much better

ReviewA good practical car with much improved exterior design from earlier models. The lack of standard transmission is a serious mistake. The geartronic works but the lag in shifting and the difficulty in knowing what gear you are in is disorienting and limits performance. Driving is very civilized and secure, but suffers from lack of feedback to driver. The feeling is of a refined car being driven in accord with your commands by someone else, rather than a sense of the car being an extension of oneself.
Best FeaturesThe small intelligent things like exceptional booster seats and the clear priority attached to safety.
Worst FeaturesStandard transmission, and giving more choice on expensive options like leather and sunroof which many of us do not want. Pricing in Canada appears to be out of line when compared to other Euro imports.
