It also has 'flappy paddle' gear changing on the steering column. And there's even a 'Speed' button on the circular gear knob - haven't dare try it in case it sends me into hyperdrive!

    This new engine emits less emissions too - a green engine!!
    If you press the "Speed" button, you can't travel at under 50mph or the car will explode! Haha

    On the off chance that you press the "Speed" catch, you can't go at under 50mph or the vehicle will detonate

    There are some really good safety features built into the car's electronics.

    I didn't know it but a screw had penetrated my rear tyre. A graphic appeared on the dashboard showing a plan view of the car and the tyre pressure. The punctured tyre had gone from 35 to 17. Quckfit sorted the repair out for free.

    If you're on the motorway the car will suggest you take a break if your car drifts towards a road marking such as a dotted line.

    It has auto window wiper feature and something I discovered going across country at night. It changes the dipped headlights to full beam when the road conditions allow. It also goes from full beam to dipped when it sees another car coming towards me.

    Parking could be considered difficult in a 7 seater but the reversing sensors and front sensors make parking easy.

    I like the way you can talk to the car to interact it to carry out tasks while driving. It can make hands free phone calls, GPS navigation, playing the radio or accessing your phones iTunes music

    Technology is a wonderful thing and certainly makes driving a pleasure for m
