Driving it

4 out of 5

What's it like to drive?
If you can, buy at least the 1.6. The 1.4 is under powered.

What's it like to park?
The front & rear are guesswork, best to get the passenger to guide you in.

Living with it

4 out of 5

49k, never missed a beat. 16k between services, awesome. Pitted alloys & broken hood sensors replaced under warrenty, no quibble.

What's most practical about your car?
Not a lot but nice on a sunny day up to 50mph.

Favourite gadget, option or accessory?
The soft top
