Excellent Value 4 Money


Nothing yet mechanically has gone wrong with it, even though, I have only had the car for the last 6 months. Of these 6 months my wife uses it to get from home to work and back. We have taken it on very few journeys so far.

General Comments:

I bought the full-spec version with leather interior, alloys, visibility pack, etc. The car was a present to the wife as an upgrade from a 1.2 Peugeot 206.

Very comfortable ride.

Excellent grip and handling.

Takes long to accelerate (of course I am comparing to my 1.8T Passat) but drives beautifully at high speeds and on corners and mountain roads.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
