A well-built, fast city car


Still nothing gone wrong with the car! The only thing I have changed is the tires!

General Comments:

This car has a very good 16 valve engine so you won't have any problem driving in and out of the city. The only disadvantage is the low high speed (170 Km/h) because of the medium down force (0,36). However the acceleration is really good, reminds you that you are in a higher-class model.

Suspension system has a quite hard adjustment which makes car a little uncomfortable, in contrast with the handling which is nice and would be better if the car had more wide tires.

At last, very good reliability and quality.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
