I used this quite a few times this year on trips from home down to Peterborough (~700 mile round trip) and it's a lovely quiet motorway cruiser with very comfy seats. According to the spec checker in DICE it has up-rated speakers, I can confirm it has the best sound system of any car I've every owned. I'm going to very much miss this when it goes but needs must
