picked up car today from lemington spa drove hpme to chipping campden.......wow  smooth drive,good punch for this engine i am impressed. blue looks balck in certain light angles ,blue in others very menacing look to front of car with its black grill surround(thought it would be chrome but i quite like it with this colour) comes with E-CALL IN ROOF for those emergency situations(independant from your phone)emergency services call you if you have an accident or can press a button and you can call them.l like the speedo witch you can change to your preference(computer screen type) and a wounderful lux finish interior plus adjustable(full length)centre arm rest containing a large storage area. but roof lining is black ,black dash,black seats black carpet ....makes it a dark space thats the only thing i dont like...buts its my wifes car and she loves it and likes the hud too but i dont think she will use radar cruise control says it s too complicated but then again she never used the basic cruise in the fiesta either.Like i said on a previous post if it was for me i would def get the GT TECH SKYACTIV X AUTO 4X4 IN RED WITH BURGANDY SEATS AND TWO TONE DASH £32.5K....HMMMM(12K DIFF FROM BASE MODEL) HMMMM a bit too dear i think

It sounds nice but £32.5k is some serious outlay.
