It's easy to drive. It has a high, comfortable driving position. It has large door mirrors and big windows, so it has great all round visibility. It is smaller than it looks (honest), so is easy to manoeuvre in tight spaces. It is quite tall, so feels very roomy inside (if you like wearing big hats, perhaps). It has very few gizmos - everything you need to learn - no fiddly bits. It's air-bagged up to the eyeballs and has all the safety stuff you'll hopefully never need. It is fitted with dual controls, because not having them would be just silly, and sometimes scary.
It has all the style and panache of a Kia.
