General Comments:

The default stereo is really pathetic. They could upgrade there speakers to give the car better value.

The dull gray of the interior could definitely be improved.

The 1.9 tdi engine is excellent bang for your buck. The engine has a suprising kick at low torque and is considerable more affordable than Audi 1.9 tdi or Volkswagen.

A very compact feeling for a com-bi and it handles quite well.

The stiff suspension is good for our catastrophic Polish roads!

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
