Summary

5 out of 5

What does this car say about you?
Modest, uncompromised, subtle styling, sensible.

What do your friends / family / neighbours think of the car?
Very happy, comfortable, good looking, fun. Some badge snobbery, but why pay £2k more for the equivalent VW for its badge?

Would you buy this car again and why?
Yes, for value for money, practicality and performance. At the end of the day, is a VW polo, for £2k less! WIN.

What are you likely to buy next?
Same again/Fabia VRS?
