3 out of 5

What's it like to drive?
It lacks power, the fist 3 seconds are great until some old dear speeds past you in a Toyota Yaris. Very nippy on country roads and city driving. Pretty useless on the open road, no power past 70 MPH. Enine makes alot of noise but with little to show for it.

Very easy, good turning circle
