I like the car for its attitude, handling and compactness - not for the practicality
Paint chipping on front bumper at 5000km by the separation of the bumper and body. Re-painted by the dealer and a bumper-spacer fitted. No problem since.
Minor squeaking from the dashboard during cold weather.
Very fun to drive and good at handling - it really does drive on rails.
A different looking car that will guarantee you attention on the road.
The 1.6 non-turbo is sufficient for city driving, but not much room for more than that.
Manual gear box is super precise!
Seats are somewhat comfortable, but there isn't much room for more than 4 people and two small pieces of luggage in the back.
Interior build is OK, the plastic is a little hard and seem to easily be scratched. But the shiny middle console and door trim will probably survive the lifetime of the car without any problem.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
