Value

5 out of 5

Fuel is good when Shell Optimax is used. Add an ecotec fuel saver device and get another 20 miles a tank! Load of gear for your money. Air Con, Half Leather Seats, Body Kit etc...

Costs

4 out of 5

Fuel is good for such a powerful engine and parts are freely available and good value. Servicing when done through a trusted local garage works out about £110 for the full service every 12000 miles!

Sticks like glue and loves country roads. Feels very safe.

Performance

5 out of 5

You'll have a smile on your face. Wipe all those ZR Boys driving their 1.4's straight off the road. Loves 1st and 2nd gear, going to 60 in 7.6 with Sports intake.

Reliability

5 out of 5

Only had it for two months. No problems yet.

I've got the pure silver version and it certainly turns heads. The 25's body with the GTI Kit looks gracefully sporty, without showing off.

Comfort

4 out of 5

Well above average. I'm 6'4"" tall and feel comfortable even after a two hours journey to Essex. Lumbar Support and adjustable wheel help. Sports suspension makes for a firm ride, but this in turn helps with safety , as you can become one with the car.
