Comfort and Refinement
The standard leather seats are quite comfortable and even after a 300 mile round trip we felt quite relaxed. The front seats are electrically adjustable in all eight directions and are heated.
Standard equipment includes: rain sensitive windscreen wipers but you pay an extra £525 for Bi-Xenon HID headlamps as fitted to our test car. Probably money well spent if you do a lot of night time driving, as they certainly make a difference as they especially help with eye fatigue.
We car was fitted with the optional (£650) RDS AM/FM stereo, 6-disc CD changer, Bose 9-speaker system with a MP3 / auxiliary inlet. With the a little bit of tweaking the system was appealing and well worth the money if you spend a lot time at the wheel.
You can opt for a Kenwood DVD powered Satellite Navigation for an additional £1550.
