38 mpg on a run, 34 around town when you consider a pug 307 1.6 auto does 27mpg the costs are very low.

Performance

3 out of 5

not a great pull away by any stretch of the imagination but bags of torque, which helps make up for it

Not had any problems yet.

Models with small wheels or horrible colours can look very boring, go for one with the 18inch factory option alloys in a nice colour and the car becomes a real head turner.

Comfort

5 out of 5

Excellent, i can spread my legs almost completely straight in the passenger seat and I'm over 6ft, this may not be comfortable for those in the back but then again you don't buy a coupe with the intention of going four up every day do you!?!

Security

4 out of 5

Hopefully never have to find out, although I accidentally set off the alarm when opening the bonnet and the alarm is certainly an ear piercer!
