Value

4 out of 5

Depreciation is a factor, otherwise a lot for your money

Costs

On the HD1 £20. It gets you 300 miles!

Driving

3 out of 5

Great acceleration, but quickly goes off the boil if you need to lift off, poor ride quality

Performance

4 out of 5

Strong and flexible turbo engine, brakes are overly sharp in town and wooly at speed. The handling is nothing special

Reliability

5 out of 5

Never had a problem, although occasionally the remote central locking plipper goes awol, but usually comes back within half an hour

Image

3 out of 5

Stylish design a mixture of AUDI TT at front and Punto-esque rear.

Comfort

1 out of 5

Hard to get comfortable due to lack of lumbar adjustment, rear not too bad, but low screen and thick A-pillars hinder visibility
