Reliable high performance bargain
Nothing major went wrong, apart from a leaking front shock and a worn clutch at 170 000 km. Seems normal for this kind of power.
Extremely fast, 0-100 in a mere 7 seconds, roomy and very reliable. Blows away all kinds of GTI's and the like with just 158 HP. Amazingly light-weight - kerb weight 1180 kg, although it's a big limo.
Consumption is about 13 l/100 km city driving and 10l/100km highway use.
These cars are extremely underrated and come to the second hand market really cheap.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
