It's about as new as it gets for an existing model, with some 95 percent of the car having seen changes.

The car is longer and wider, but lower, and weighs no more than the outgoing model.

The engine has been updated as well, making a few more horsepower but, crucially, enabling 38 mpg on the highway.

And with the five-door wagon model costing just $500 more, it's practical, too.

Fully kitted out you're looking at around $30,000, which isn't bad for all that you're getting.
