I assume it was the red one I was in a few days ago. I thought it was just about perfect. Only problem is rearward visibility is really bad to the sides - but they have nice big convex mirrors for that. And the shifter I found far too notchy but I would probably get used to that.

Compensating a heavy car with horsepower is like giving an alcoholic cocaine to sober him up...

The thing that surprised me most about the interior was how solid it felt, even closing the door it was a reassuring thunk.
