Summary

4 out of 5

What does this car say about you?
Its not an obvious fast car, but at the high rev pulls really well - not quite a sleeper but as good as. Quite reserved.

What do your friends / family / neighbours think of the car?
Like it, it is a sexy car overall.

Would you buy this car again and why?
Yes, but I would consider the compressor and get the power across the range with the added super charger.

What are you likely to buy next?
Possibly a younger compressor, I have the fast car bug!

Driving it

5 out of 5

What's it like to drive?
Fuel economy is ok, I get 33/34mpg (which is more than the 32mpg stated by Toyota). But at the higher revs the economy goes out of the window - but who cares is sounds amazing and holds the road well.

What's it like to park?
Easy, its still a little car at heart!

Living with it

4 out of 5

Have you had any problems with the car?
Rear brakes needed changing, but that is normal wear and tear. No problems!

What's most practical about your car?
Decent boot for a hot hatch and the space in the cabin is good.

Favourite gadget, option or accessory?
VVTL-i is amazing at 6200 rpm.
