Performance

3 out of 5

1.6 slightly sluggish. Would jump to 1.8 or 2.0 next time.

Reliability

3 out of 5

Nothing major in the six months I've had it. The driver elec window broke on a frosty morning and hasn't worked since. A few interior plastic parts have fallen off.

Image

5 out of 5

The best part about the car. It's stylish, classy and reputable without the 'boy racer' image.

Comfort

3 out of 5

Not as comfortable as expected. Found the slight bucket seat shape too big for both myself and my partner and was moving around on tight corners taken at speed. Also lacked lumbar support making long journeys quite uncomfortable.
