Doesn't stick to the road as others in class do. Back of car has a habit of steping out on roundabouts.

Quite a lot of car for you money.

Costs

Fuel performance is not the best (around 35-39mpg). Parts can be costly when they go wrong.

Performance

For a 1.4, it's nippy. Better than some 1.6s I have driven.

No major problems so far.

Sleek lines. I guess you either love it or hate it. Very popular, though.

Comfort

2 out of 5

Seats feel flat and long journeys can cause back ache. Although seat and wheel adjustment is handy.

Deadlocks and immobiliser. Can't even add an alarm with out going to Vauxhall (no room in engine bay).

Service

Not had too much dealing with them, but when I do it's not great.
