Solid and spacious car


Until now I didn't have any problem, but the car is fairly new.

General Comments:

This is really value for money. The road handling is very good, stability is good, and it is easy to keep control.

It almost asks for fast driving due to its superb road handling. The space inside is very good, also for shopping. The view is less good than I am used to. The rear window is quite small and you don't have a good overview of the car's sizes when parking.

The ethanol flex motor has a lot of horsepower; 112 hp what is really sufficient for this car. With gasoline he is a little less strong. Using ethanol is a really nice feeling, driving around without bad smell and pollution.

In general I am quit satisfied with this car. The engine could be more smooth and the suspension a little less hard, but then you would also give up its road handling.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
