Driving it

5 out of 5

What's it like to drive?
The steering feels sound and solid, if light. the engine response is great for this engine size, and you can really make progress down a twisting B-road. the narrowness of the car helps this as well.

What's it like to park?
Easiest thing in the world. the pillars are small, the glass is big.

Living with it

4 out of 5

Have you had any problems with the car?
Nothing has gone wrong with this car. its the most reliable car in the household (along with a vauxhall vectra, mercedes c class and subaru justy).

What's most practical about your car?
The space in the back with the rear seats folded down or removed is huge. managed to fit 3 people, 3 bikes and 2 days of clothes for each.
