Driving it

What's it like to drive?
I was very surprised when i first drove it. These cars have exceptional performance, especially the toque. I thought a car with this must power on the front tyres would be all over the road. How WRONG was I!

The car doesnt come with a reverse sensor, but lets face it. You by the car for its cost to run\performance. It is quite a wide car which my lass has had problems parking at asda.
