Summary

4 out of 5

What does this car say about you?
I'm not afraid to choose a car that I think is suitable for me.

What do your friends / family / neighbours think of the car?
My sisters love it and think it is 'cute'. Friends think it is 'functional'. Everyone likes the 'high-up' travelling position.

Would you buy this car again and why?
Yes. Easy access. High driving position. Loads of space inside. Speed adequate for my needs. Reasonable on fuel.

What are you likely to buy next?
Perhaps a newer wagon R+, or maybe a bigger MPV like a Zafira.

Driving it

4 out of 5

What's it like to drive?
I love it. Once you get accustomed to the 5-speed gearbox it's a breeze to drive. At about 3150rpm it does 60mph quite comfortably on motorway. Admittedly, it's no 'speed-machine' but it is adequate for my needs.

What's it like to park?
Its a short vehicle so it fits into small spaces. The rear view mirror gets a bit cluttered due to the passenger headrests. But take your time and all is well.

Living with it

4 out of 5

Have you had any problems with the car?
Had it three months. No problems up to now.

What's most practical about your car?
Really easy to get in and out of. High driving position gives good frontal view.

Favourite gadget, option or accessory?
Power steering is good. Interior lights come on by pulling side/headlight swith towards you. Heated rear window by pulling heater switch towards you. Acres of room with rear seats folded down.
