China test drive

I test drove the top of the range Vezel in China today. A 1.8L AWD CVT in Carnelian Red (my favorite). The interior has leather seats, arm rest etc, with a beautiful driving position, and instrument layout. The dealers only allow people to drive a few miles, but it had ample power, quiet, and handled pot holes well. I have never driven a CVT before and the tinny sound when accelerating was unusual, but a minor point. Overall. I am pretty sure I will buy, but will wait to drive a CX3 first.

1 - The CVT.

2 - No power seats.
