Driving it

5 out of 5

What's it like to drive?
Great. The 1.6 VVT engine delivers plenty of power. Keep the revs above 4000rpm to give maximum acceleration through the range. Such a high revving engine can get tiresome on a long motorway journey, but this car is all about the B-roads.

What's it like to park?
Easy.

Living with it

Nothing at all, solid as a rock.

What's most practical about your car?

Favourite gadget, option or accessory?
Climate control is nice. Keyless entry is also a welcome feature. You do get alot of stuff as standard with the Sport.
