Driving it

4 out of 5

What's it like to drive?
it's actually quite fun, it seems to grip in corners when you don't think it should. the gear box needs working to build up/maintain speed, but that add's to the charm, and it cruizes ok. the abs with esp inspires confidence. the ride is smoother than some other cars in the same class such as the c1.

What's it like to park?
the car is easy to park, the steering doesn't seem heavy like some reviews suggest and the turning circle is tiny
