Ford Escort Hatchback (90-01)

Performance

2 out of 5

Looks faster than it is. Supposed to be 0-60 in 9.2 but it is more like 11.2. Will cruise all day 115mph with more to go. If you want power get a VW Golf VR6.

Reliability

5 out of 5

Superb. First time every time in frost, snow, anything.

The best looking Escort made apart from GTi and Cosworth. Colour coded. Front fogs. Rear spoiler and very stylish starfish like alloy wheels.

Comfort

4 out of 5

A nice drive. Much better than old Escort's more solid and heavy and more luxurious inside. Smooth gears. Sporty steering wheel and white dials which glow a beautiful green at night.
