Value

4 out of 5

Good value for what you get.

Costs

2 out of 5

High insurance, especially when you're only 17. High fuel economy - drinks it like there's no tommorow.

Driving

4 out of 5

Nice ride if you like it serious. Good on the motorway.

Performance

4 out of 5

Quick and responsive. Nothing will keep with it in its class. Fit a performance exhaust and filter and you can feel those extra horses.

Reliability

5 out of 5

Very good so far, touch wood.

Change the wheels and drop it and soon looks serious. Nothing bad about standard.

Comfort

4 out of 5

Very good when you're snuggled up in those fine Recaros.
