Easy to drive, handles pretty well.

Performance

4 out of 5

Not bad, not the fastest 1800 around. No match for latest hot hatches. Cruises easily at motorway speeds with plenty to spare.

Reliability

3 out of 5

OK, had a few small things go. Nothing major and is a ten year old car.

Reasonable bit cramped in the back sports style front seats comfortable.
