    I think you made a good job of this. It clearly shows all the parts of the car that you wanted to highlight. One thing I noticed was that exterior shots looked like that have been graded but the interior shots don't ?

    I liked the timelapse at the beginning as I haven't seen it being used in such reviews before (and because I have a fable for timelapse).

    00:30, 01:28 and 02:05 are a bit shaky. Did you already apply image stabilization in post-production?

    In the outside shots the whites were a bit too bright some times. A higher f-Value (smaller aperture) or ND filter would likely have helped.

    Voice quality could have been better. Which microphone did you use?

    You could have put some beer/water boxes into the trunk to better visualize its size.

    1:49 and 3:05 stay somehow out of focus.

    I miss comparisons to competing models.

    In general it was not bad and shots were in principle well chosen.

    I thought the voiceover was rather flat. I must admit it pains me to say that as I like the fact it simply recited stats and figures unemotionally, unlike most car type vids which are trying to sell you a lifestyle and have no content. But it was rather too flat. Try to vary your pitch/speed/synamics a bit. it wasn't clear when you'd finished speaking as the final lines were delivered in the same flat manner as everything else.

    Having music with vocals doesn't help and the mind tends to try to work out what's being said/sung.

    Possible glitch in the cut at 3:10?

    It's crazy. I just seem tuned in to be able to spot the odd duff frame, yet I miss the sorts of errors that just jump out at the likes of you - especially focus. I never spot bad focus!
