Nothing in particular, probably shows i am new to the road.

Family and friends think its a perfect little runabout that feels nice to drive in. Friends are often surprised with its performance being a small engine.

Would you buy this car again and why?
I would based on the fact its a brilliant little runabout with good economy, drive-ability and performance.

What are you likely to buy next?
Probably another small hatchback with more emphasis on the performance. For example a toyota yaris 1.5 vvti sport.

Driving it

4 out of 5

What's it like to drive?
Surprisingly nippy for a 1L engine, more guts than you would expect. Doesn't perform brilliantly uphill or when carrying lots of passengers but isn't too much of an issue. Absolutely fine round town and on the motorway. Feels very nice and easy to drive, steering could be a tad lighter but does not raise any issues.

What's it like to park?
Very easy to park as the turning circle is brilliant and the car is only small. Good all round visibility. Lighter steering however would be preferable.
