Very nicely. It’s fairly smooth and rides over the road like a car much bigger than it actually is - it’s higher than some of the other small SUVs which can still feel quite low, so it gives you that height perspective we all crave in our cars at the moment. It also means it kind of bounces over bumps, and makes for a fun ride if you like that kind of thing.
There’s a 2.0-litre engine which gives you enough power to get up hills and zoom around town, but it’s not particularly quick off the mark - you couldn’t call it zippy. Still, once it gets going, it gets you there and I had no issues with the driving this week.
Ease of parking is paramount and the size of this car makes parking relatively easy compared to a larger SUV. There’s a good reverse parking camera and also a 360 degree camera gives you a view from the top of the car so you know where you are compared to things like walls around you.
It does have a larger than average turning circle for a small SUV - 11.4m is more on par with a mid-size SUV and this can make U-turns a bit trickier.
