Performance

4 out of 5

My 1.6 16v got quicker after about 40k miles. The engines are torquey and perfom well.

Reliability

5 out of 5

No major faults in 80,000 miles. Used for hard, high mileage work and was a solid, well built work horse.

A bit common, but unpretentious. Look better in sporty guise.

Comfort

3 out of 5

Driving position a bit cramped for the long legged, but seats supportive and rear legroom is excellent. Boot is massive (amongst biggest in class - 370 litres).
