A user who test-drove the car lists his observations, according to him the pros are the ride quality and handling of the car. He was impressed with the style quotient especially the rear hatchback of the car. He measured mileage of the ride and found it to be 13.2 kmpl and the top speed he could achieve was 194km/hr. Well according to him the cons are not enough boot space & rear headroom and complicated gearbox. And not to forget about the visibility from hatchback is low, which is only good to give better appearance to onlookers.
According to another user the car provides ultimate safety tools and rides fairly well. Yes he too liked the Scandinavian influence of the car and the style which is comparable to Audi and BMW. But he feels that the car is bit overpriced, only the upper class can afford it and he agrees to the previous user regarding some problem with the gearbox.
