From the outside and especially in this colour (it’s Iridium Silver Metallic, which costs an extra $1190), it reminds me of liquid mercury. It's all silver and fluid with long curves and smooth lines and no sharp edges. It’s very elegant in design and has just the right length to the hatchback. Some hatches can be too long or too short, but this feels just right.
The interior is equally impressive. It starts with a double multimedia screen that stretches from the centre of the car to the driver’s side, and displays a completely digital dashboard, together with the multimedia tech in the centre.
Then there are air vents, which look more like tyre rims, with metallic liquid silver framing the circular blowholes. This is all balanced out with a clean, minimal design across the bottom of the centre console, with a high-gloss lid concealing storage, and a touch-pad mouse that controls the multimedia.
The leather steering wheel and seats look like they belong in a racing car, but turn out to be far too comfortable for that. There’s also a seat-shaped metallic silver control that operate the powered pews into position, with more of the metallic accents on handles and doors throughout. In short, it looks quite fabulous. And premium.
