Fine, seating fabrics could be better!

Costs

Outstanding. Well priced servicing and 60-70 mpg on normal urban/extra urban driving conditions. Less economical at motorway speeds.

I have a flame red version wirh hatch spoiler and body kit so it talks the talk.

Comfort

3 out of 5

Fair! Dull interior fabrics/upholstery and trim let down a potentially good interior. Split rear backrest is commendable, but let down badly with a one piece rear bench seat - major interior design fault.

4 out of 5

Immobiliser, deadlocks, security nuts on alloy wheels. An alarm should be installed as standard.

Service

5 out of 5

Dealer serviced & mot tested from brand new. Fair pricing and readily available genuine vx spares inspire confidence in servicing capability. Mot test was free of charge at service date.
