However the dashboard and instrument layout is clear and functional, ergonomics are first class, and everything works beautifully, including the dash bitch, who, unusually for a navigation system, is to be applauded for not talking too much.

In the past several months there have been many paragraphs in CAR Magazine like this. I don’t mind humour, poking fun at politicians, celebrities and what not, but I don’t care to read snide and ignorant comments about women anymore. Women have a hard enough time in the car industry as it is and the predominately male readership of car magazines don’t need any more encouragement.

If this continues I won’t be reading CAR Magazine again. Leave the juvenile views of women to lads mags and other such tripe.
