    The Rockford Fosgate sound system just blows away every music track I own in clarity and overall quality. Definitely put it on your list when comparing cars. You cannot have video playing while driving. My wife and I always get com Good price, Feels more unique compared to other vehicles not bashing, but it feels nice to drive something different since I see Hondas, Nissans, and Toyotas, very often with people my age , and reacts well to driver's driving style.

    Spacious boot; manageability; fuel economy; zippy engine Road noise; cup holder location; slight stereo distortion. However, after putting it through all the domestic tests, the ES is in my opinion has to be one of the best small sedans for family purposes on offer. There is no better place to start than with the boot, which far exceeded my expectations. No need for removing pram wheels or practising Tetris while trying to fit everything in.

    As an added bonus, there is a boot release button on the key which always comes in handy when you are trying to juggle a baby, a runaway toddler and a load of shopping. The child seat anchors are located behind the headrests and are easy to find and use. There were no complaints from back seat passengers on leg room. In the front, I found the surroundings to be equally as comfortable and driver-friendly. The seats are set deep with the window ledge coming up to about my short-statured shoulder height, so no leaning the elbow on the door sill for me!

    The contoured dash follows the double arced line of the large speedometer and tachometer before smoothing out to a chrome finish along the passenger side. The fuel gauge in the ES is part of the central LCD display which, with the use of the right side 'INFO' button, also displays distance to empty, average and instantaneous fuel consumption and external temperature. The driver and front passenger seats are quite comfortable and the drivers seat is height adjustable. There are two central drinks holders which are a sufficient size to hold any beverage.

    However I have a gripe with the positioning — the hand brake is located closest to the passenger with the drink holders closest to the driver, a legacy of left-hand-drive design we guess!

    I much prefer the hand brake closest to my seat and in the five-speed manual that I tested, I was constantly elbowing the bottles in the drink holders when changing gears. Front and rear power windows come as standard as does cruise control, all of which are easy to operate. The passenger seatbelt alert signal is very effective, the annoying alarm does wonders in ensuring everyone is buckled in, even if only for the sake of muting the ding ding dinging. The CD player is MP3 compatible and straight forward to use.

    Steering wheel mounted volume controls are not fitted as standard and with the volume knob towards the passenger side, it is a bit of a stretch if you are used to the fingertip convenience. With eight clicks from minimum to maximum on the air-conditioning control, there is plenty of room to ensure the car is at a comfortable temperature.

    So I can hear you all wondering, yeah, that is great, it can fit a pram and you elbowed your drink, but does it go? The answer is a resounding yes! I was most impressed by the punchy engine under the bonnet of the ES. It may only have four cylinders, but the 2.

    The five-speed manual was great to drive and I can see it being a hit with the husband as well. I even found myself itching to get it on the open road and I could have literally driven it all day and not tired of it. To me there was no noticeable lag with Nm of torque and the responsiveness of the ES really bought a splash of excitement to everyday driving.

    Oh, and one more thing on the gearbox, I love the shaft cover, it has a luxurious soft leathery feel. On the downside, road noise in the Lancer was quite pronounced and I found myself cranking the stereo right up to try and drown out the road noise. It seemed to amplify every vibration through the floor right into the car. When I first took delivery of the ES and the large yellow sticker on the windscreen screamed 7.
