Excellent on the motorway. Very good grip on the twisty stuff, but it's no Lotue Elise!

Value

4 out of 5

A lot of car for under £10k second-hand.

Costs

Depreciation is heavy if you do high mileage.

Performance

4 out of 5

Mine's a manual. It's a solid heavy car, but is pretty quick off the mark and fast on the motorway.

Reliability

3 out of 5

My car has done 100k+. I had a noisy wheel bearing replaced. That's been it apart from servicing.

High quality understated. Much rarer than saloons or coupes.

Comfort

4 out of 5

Firm but comfortable seats, super high quality materials, quiet cruiser.
